Classic Midway arcade games converted to run on hand-held computers

Terra Mobile's iobox subsidiary has inked a deal with Midway to bring some of the company's arcade classics to hand-held devices. Starting in mid-October, games such as Defender, Paperboy, Marble Madness and Gauntlet will be coming to PDA systems running EPOC, WinCE, PalmOS and Linux. Terra Mobile are said to be "really excited" at the prospect of bringing these gaming dinosaurs back to life, including the possibility of players being able to take part in retro gaming competitions and to post their performances via SMS or the internet to global high score tables. It's like having your own personal arcade, but without having to keep feeding the damn machine with loose change...
