While we love finding new games to play, there is still something to be said for the classics we grew up with. Many of the games we played as children continue to be popular, mostly because they are fun to play and we usually learn a little something in the process.

While you can still find many of these classic games in their original formats, they are also now available as downloadable apps for our smartphones and tablets. Here are a few of the classics reinvented for the mobile age.
