App description: Thanks to the kind generosity of the three co-founders of VideaHoward Delman, Ed Rotberg, and Roger Hectorthe original ROM images from the only existing Gridlee machine have been made available for free, non-commercial use.

Gridlee is a game that was never released. It was developed by Videa, Inc. in 1982, on hardware designed by Howard Delman. Videa was eventually acquired by Pizza Time Theater and formed the core of their new Sente Technologies division.

The hardware that Gridlee ran on evolved into the Bally/Sente SAC I system, which provided a cartridge-based arcade gaming platform that supported such games as Snake Pit, Stocker, and Hat Trick.

Emulation Technology: MAME 0.139u1.

Has anyone poked around to see if a funcional MAME client is in the .ipa somewhere? I'm quickly dl'ing this to all my devices, just in case.

Speaking of emuaktion, I read an article from Pocket Gamer I think about a new, free android program that emulates nearly every major 8-32 bit system. God damn you Apple.

Yeh, it's called RetroArch and its very good. I played about with it on my GS3 earlier, the touch controls could do with tweaking but the range of options/emulators is astonishing.

I would be interested if we could get MAME running through this though, for my big screen

Games that will never leave my iPad : Great Big Wargame, Battle Academy, Battle of the Bulge, Ravenmark and Hunters 2.

As with iMame, iDos, Nescaline, and others that have appeared on the App store: Download this then back up the .ipa to a safe location. Then you can always install it manually.
