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]
