Love it or hate it, you've got
to admit that the iPod would certainly be a lot more fun if you could play Pac-Man
on it. And now, thanks to the ipodMame project,
you can. A subset of the iPodLinux project
, iPodMame aims to
bring the MAME game emulator to iPods, allowing owners to play classic games on their audio players. Currently, the
emulator is confirmed to be able to run Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man on the nano and iPod with video. Other classic games
supported by MAME are also supported, so you should be able to play Pengo and -- yes! -- Joust on your iPod.
