UPDATE APRIL 2014: THESE GAMES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AT ITUNES. THEY WERE FOR IPODS BEFORE THE IPHONE DEBUTED. APPLE NO LONGER SELLS THEM AND THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NO LONGER ACCURATE.
The iPod is about more than just music and movies these days. Now the re are also iPod video games. Apple has made a selection of iPod-playable early arcade hits available for purchase at the iTunes Store. Though the experience of playing some of these games on an iPod is different than playing them on a computer or in an arcade, they can be a lot of fun for games on the go.
This guide will show you how to buy iPod games at the iTunes Store and how to install games on your iPod (remember, you can only play these games on the iPod, not in iTunes).
Start by going to the iTunes Store. In the left-hand menu, you’ll find a link called iPod Games. Click it.
