Retro gaming on the iPhone

Retro gamers must be wetting their keks with glee at the news that a Commodore 64 app has be given approval by Apple to appear on the iPhone App Store.

Imaginatively titled C64, the new app will be bundled with five games - (Dragons Den, Le Mans, Jupiter Landing, Arctic Shipwreck and Jack Attack), and will cost £2.99. More games will also be in the offing, but with this being Apple, everything has to be officially licensed. So there’s no scope for independent creativity, as usual.

Anyway, we’re not entirely sure when it’s scheduled to come out (it doesn’t appear to be in the App Store just yet), but it’ll be good. Check out the emulator on the vid below.
