Playing Games

Okay, while it’s not exactly an Xbox, your iPod does comes with some decent little games already installed. To get to these little gems, start at the Main Menu, scroll down to Extras, and then press the Select button. In the Extras menu, scroll down to Games and press the Select button to reveal the built-in games. These vary depending on which iPod generation you own, but some of them include Solitaire (this is actually pretty sweet on newer iPods where the cards appear in color); Brick (a version of the classic “Breakout” game); Music Quiz (just what it sounds like); and Parachute (a lame version of the ’80s Missile Command arcade game). Press the center Select button to choose a game—and watch the hours just fly by.
