Touch-screen retrogaming
penrose orange
Action games don't work well on a touch interface; I did try playing the Spectrum version of Arkanoid on my tablet but soon realized it was going to be too awkward to be any fun. (The Wiimote does work nicely as a controller, mind).

For touch-screen retrogaming, puzzle games are definitely the way to go. Thus far, I recommend:

Of those, BeTiled! and Pariboro are my favourites. They're also not "true" retrogames, both having been written fairly recently, albeit for a retro platform.

For emulating a Spectrum on an Android device, the open-source Xpectroid seems to work pretty well.
