Apple reconsidering C64 Emulator for iPhone?

updated 11:55 am EDT, Thu August 20, 2009

C64 Emulator for iPhone

Apple could be reconsidering allowing the C64 Emulator app onto the App Store, following its rejection in June. The developer, Manomio, recently claimed in a tweet that it was contacted by a senior director at Apple and there is "BIG news coming," although further details have not yet been announced.

The legally-licensed emulator features original Commodore 64 graphics, SID sound, auto-save and portrait or landscape modes. Input is provided by a virtual C64 joystick and button on the device display. The app will provide five free games including Dragons Den, Le Mans, Jupiter Lander, Arctic Shipwreck and Jack Attack.

If the tweet is hinting at imminent approval, pricing and a launch date still remain unknown. [via Touch Arcade]

    Love it!

    I'm sold on it - if I can get Jumpman, Jumpman Jr., Load Runner, Splunker and many of the other games I loved playing back on my C64 in the day.

    C64 Emulator for iPhone?

    If a fully functional C64 Emulator (able to run C64 programs rather than just reproduce the user experience) was approved that would be BIG news, because it would imply that the prohibition against runtimes was being relaxed or removed...which would open the door to Flash, Java and Silverlight.
