iPod Touch Games Downloads

By: Sandra Stammberger

With the advent of the touch screen interface for iPods when the Touch came out, new features were added to the humble iPod to make it better than ever and more flexible in the realm of mobile entertainment for the person on the go. And the most compelling addition to the iPod Touch compared to other iPods before it was a whole new slew of games using the device's touch screen as controls. For the iPod owner who is also a gamer at heart, this can be a dream come true because now, not only can you play music or videos on your device, but play games and keep setting new high scores on their iPod. And the best part is that you can download and install new games on your iPod to make it even better when you play the games you want.

Types of games available for download

From puzzle games to arcade, sports games to racing, there are a lot of games available for downloading to your iPod touch so that you won't ever have to feel bored again. Games in any genre that you enjoy playing are available, most of them at a price.

There are a lot of games coming out, because to the developers the iPod Touch/iPhone is a new platform where they can develop new games or specialized versions of their bestselling titles for iPod gamers to play. You'll be able to select which games you want to get when you browse around gaming download sites. There are new titles for the iPod touch itself, and there are new reprisals of old games that are loved by most even in their simplicity, like the classic solitaire game. You can download whatever game you want and enjoy it all on your iPod.

How much you'll pay

With iPod games downloads, you can expect that there are some good games that are free to download and pay, and at the other extreme you'll have to pay upwards of twenty dollars for a chance to play your favorite game on your new iPod. But most games will fall somewhere in between, and the list price for individual downloads will most likely be in the ten-dollar range. These games will be priced squarely so that the developer will also make money, but at a price that won't have users steering away from them in droves.

However, there are also other ways that you can get games on your iPod Touch. Download sites that charge a membership fee but offer unlimited downloads for their subscription duration are way better for your wallet than having to download each game separately. Once you've signed up, all you have to do is pay the initial subscription, and then you can download whenever you want, no matter how many you want to download and put in your iPod.

Another way to get around paying for games on your device is to get the trial versions before you actually download the full version on your iPod, so that if you don't like the download, you didn't actually pay for it yet so no worries on your part. If you like it however, you can purchase the full version knowing that you'll already be satisfied with your new game on your iPod Touch.
