haha yep, another emulator to add to the ever growing pile but i hope this becomes the definative one!

some interesting info in the foreword section of the app, brings back the memory of great software houses. i was even a little suprised to see elite still running tbh, it has a place in history for me personally as airwolf ended up being the first computer game i ever purchased would like to see that included for old times sake!

what it boils down to is games and controls. game wise we are thin on content, however the 6 games are true classics and elite have promised 3 free updates with a bunch of games each plus securing the rights to 2 other 'major' software houses befiore eventually adding an in app store which would be totally fine by me.

the presentation is nice, rough a little but still gives a nice oldskool feel and a bit of instruction and history on each game.

control wise im a little concerned tho. i can see why they used a keyboard overlay as it the most intuative to use whilst many games required specific keys. however, you simply have to include a digital joystick as thats how many will remember playing their games. im a bit all fingers and thumbs with these controls but they are quite responsive and if you persevere you can muddle thru certain games, harrier attack is just fine like this. turbo esprit is a nightmare however.

work hard on giving us cool controls. the ones in zx nostalgia were actually pretty good, just needed some adjustments, and throw us some cool games like scuba dive, chaos and airwolf and this could occupy many a gamers hour!

That seriously just looks awful. And what redeeming features there may be, are utterly obliterated by the controls.

Interesting... I have ZX nostalgia, which was pulled out of iTunes. This one is called ZX nostalgia too, but is different. It has different games and is not the one I own. Looks like they terminated the first one and came back with a different collection of games without updating the former app.
