Retro Games as in old games or old style games or just any game with chunky pixellated graphics?

For the former, Another World. For the latter, Nimble Quest.

Location: That depends whether you ask for timezone, state of mind or GPS coordinates.
The Sonic series has iOS ports (Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic CD, Sonic 4 HD: Episode I, Sonic 4: Episode 2), and somebody recently announced a remastered version of Sonic 1.

Final Fantasy I-V are also available, there's a Street Fighter II Collection, R-Type, Chrono Trigger, Duke Nukem 3D, Earthworm Jim, Final Fight, Megaman X, Golden Axe, Secret of Mana, The Simpsons Arcade, X-Men and probably 100s more that would be worth mentioning.

However, the iPad's touch interface is obnoxious at times, so something like the iCade 8-bitty comes in handy.

It's supported by Atari, Namco, Midway and Activision arcade games, among others. If you're jailbroken, you can add support for most retro games around.
