Apple has finally announced a range of games for its iPod media player.

Downloadable directly through the iTunes store, titles will cost US$ 4.99 (EUR 4.00) and be playable on fifth generation iPods.

The full list of titles includes familiar names, with Pac-Man, Tetris, Mahjong, Bejeweled, Zuma, Cubis 2, Texas Hold 'em, Mini Golf and Vortex all now available.

With Namco, Electronic Arts, PopCap, FreshGames and Apple itself supplying content, the move has been instantly seen as a confident stride into the casual games market, a view fuelled by the fact that iPod is already synonymous with mobile entertainment.

Although some third-party coders have ported popular games in the past, the move from Apple confirms a commitment to the games market, as rumoured back in May of this year.
