Commodore 64 iPhone App Approved! Removed

Illustration for article titled Commodore 64 iPhone App Approved! Removed

Update: After finally hitting the app store, the fully-licensed C64 emulator has been yanked after a user workaround made Apple realize that Manomio didn't completely ditch the old-skool BASIC 2.0 interpreter it objected to.


Tsk Tsk. Manomio has this to say:

Unfortunately, Apple has pulled the C64 Application from their store as it was discovered by some users that it was possible to enable the Basic program through the interface. We have now fixed the issue and our application has been re-submitted for approval by Apple.

We thank you all for your support and fingers crossed we hope to launch again over the next few days.

The $5 app supports licensed game images sold by Manomio, and $5 gets you 5 games. Included are Dragons Den, Le Mans, Jupiter Lander, Arctic Shipwreck, and Jack Attack. More licensed games are expected to cost about 99c to $2 each.

Hopefully Manomio can sort its shit out soon. Stay tuned. [Touch Arcade]



I am holding out for the Commodore Plus/4 emulator, myself.

Okay, I have to admit that when this thing becomes available (permanently) I will have to buy an iPod Touch to get this. Sure, an absolute waste of money to run C64 games, but somehow still priceless. Get it together, Manomio!
