Selling old mobile may allow phone users to enjoy retro games

Selling an old mobile phone and putting the cash towards a model from Nokia's range should allow users to enjoy a raft of retro games available from the brand.

Ian, writing the Nokia Conversations blog, says old favourites are making a comeback - and they dominate this week's round-up of the top apps.

Firstly, he notes the latest incarnation of the popular Pac-Man game is now available as one of the firm's apps from its Ovi Store.

Although the original is three decades old, the latest update "retains all the instant appeal and frantic gameplay" that people came to love, the author states.

Secondly, family board game Trivial Pursuit can be enjoyed in app-form via Nokia's online store, potentially offering hours of fun.

And finally, Tetris Revolution is recommended by Ian, who suggests the touchscreen interface is far more responsive than in previous editions.

Nokia offers a number of the market's leading mobiles and is set to release the long-awaited N8 device in the coming months, which could be perfect for enjoying blasts from the past.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "For all you old-school game lovers out there, this could be the phone for you. Why not trade in your old handset and upgrade? It's easy and convenient."
