Namco Museum has all the games I was looking for (pacman, galaga, xevious, galaxian). They are reproduced faithfully, but the limitations of the DS as an arcade replica are apparent. Arcade games are displayed on a vertically oriented screen, which means the game screen is either scaled to fit on a horizontal screen (ugly), or the device has to be rotated 90 degrees. Under rotation, the arcade games still don't quite fit, so they need to be scaled a little, or the game screen will be scrolled. Even worse, the action buttons are hard to reach when rotated. Still, if you're looking for these classic games for the DS, they are here and work decently. They can also be played over (local) wifi.
