I picked up the NES Collector’s Guide on iPhone tonight.

There’s a whole series of these guides on the iPhone, from Atari, Colecovision, Sega Master System, and several other older consoles.

The interface is pretty nice, if simple. It shows a nice screenshot of selected game along with the cover art, as well as a general price range of what you should expect to pay on average for a game.

There’s a few inaccuracies (such as calling Tengen games Tecmo), but the list looks fairly complete, and I always was something of a database enthusiast.

At 99 cents, it’s pretty reasonable to check out gaming history, and remember what games came out for a system when grumbling that the Virtual Console still has plenty of good games that it could release, but doesn’t.
