App description: This eighth update arrived in January '14.

THIS IS A UNIVERSAL APP

Thank you for purchasing C64: Elite Collection, for which we have ambitious goals, specifically:
to offer access - via mobile and wireless devices - to many of the thousands of fantastic C64 games created since 1982
and
to restore some order to the market for C64 games and to enable other developers and publishers to offer access to their games by licencing our technology for a modest one off fee.

The media and consumer reactions to the announcement, in late November 2012, of Apples approval of C64: Elite Collection have been extensive and enthusiastic. Our concerns now (as they were then) are to ensure that both groups understand that the App is a work-in-progress, a rough diamond if you like and that were committed to developing the App over the weeks, months and indeed years ahead.

This App contains ten C64 Games, specifically:
Pack #1 - included
- Alternate Reality: The City
- Alternate Reality: The Dungeon
- Archon
- Barbarian: The Ultimate Warrior
- Black Magic
- Bruce Lee
- Emlyn Hughes International Soccer
- Infiltrator
- Monty On The Run
- Summer Games

It also contains an in-App shop, offering the next nine packs (Packs #2 & #9, #12 & #13 - each priced at 1.49/1.79/US$1.99 per pack - each pack containing three C64 games. Pack #10 & #11 - priced at priced at 0.00/0.00/US$0.00 - these packs contain one and three C64 games, respectively.)

Other included features (*: or features coming soon):
- iDaptive (i.e. user-definable, game-specific joystick, keypad & canvass) Controls. An instructional video about the iDaptive Controls can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/22qh8hl (Google: Tiny URL 22qh8hl)
- auto save, on exiting a game
- extensive playing instructions

Pre-release Testers Required - R.P.G. (Universal iOS App)

Morning,

Pre-release Testers Required - R.P.G. (Universal iOS App)

we're looking for about 20 knowledgeable, current or lapsed R.P.G. players, to "test and suggest" our upcoming iOS app.

The iOS app includes a well known 1980s R.P.G. game, in its near 100% original form and is scheduled for release in Aug '13.

Players with fond memories and a good knowledge of the genre and era are welcome to tell us about themselves their knowledge of 1980s R.P.Gs. by email to:

paperboy@elite-systems.co.uk

Since the iOS app has not yet been announced, all involved will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement and retain all they learn about the iOS app, in confidence.

Feel free to re-post this message elsewhere and to spread the word about this opportunity.

Regards - Steve Wilcox, Elite

Hope you get a good response, Steve. I'm curious as to what it is but happy to wait and see. Kokotoni Wilf and the Fall Guy would do me for now.
