Raise a cheer, Google coder extraordinaire "kaisersoze" has a little gaming treat in store for us all, MAME -- retro, we know, but we love old school gaming and so should you. Hot on the heels of games like Doom and an NES emulator, the Google Code "sdl-mame-project" will let iPhone gamers revisit all of their favorites from decades ago. Of course, every great story has a happy sad ending and, in this case, that story is there are no binaries yet -- but the source is there if you are inspired to compile it up. While Pacman and Q*Bert run well, performance is apparently weak in other titles, so we'll simply cross our fingers and hope for rockin' speeds from one of our favorites, Ghosts 'n Goblins.
