Repton returns! - iRepton

Released back in the 80's for the BBC B microcomputer, Repton (a boulderdash / puzzle game) is coming to the iPhone as iRepton (www.iRepton.com). This was one of the fastest selling games in its day and is just as fun to play as it was back in the day!

Cool!

One is already out:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/repton/id305630199?mt=8

Looking forward to see your version.

EDIT: Ok this is wierd, your iRepton is absolutely not the Repton I remember from the C64, or the Repton that is out on the app store.

You may find some name confusion, ask I had, with your title.

Good luck anyways!
