ZX Spectrum Emulator for iPhone is here!


“The media and consumer reaction to the announcement, in late September, of Apple’s approval of ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection has been extensive and enthusiastic. Our concerns now are to ensure that both groups understand that Vol. #1 of the App is a work-in-progress, a rough diamond if you like and that we’re committed to developing the App (eliminating some of its more obvious shortcomings and adding new features) over the weeks and months ahead. Our commitments include:

– the App will always be priced at £0.59 (Euro0.79, US$0.99)
– 6 more games in a free update (Vol. #2), within a month, taking the number included to 12
– a further free update (Vol. #3), within a further month, including an in-App ‘shop’.

This inaugural volume includes:

– Turbo Esprit #3 on top 100 best games, voted for by visitors to World of Spectrum
– Saboteur #10 on top 100 best games, voted for by visitors to World of Spectrum

– Harrier Attack inspired by the conflict in the South Atlantic
