Sounds odd. Works fine for me

Many great games for the Speccy, looking forward to seeing more on this and the Elite app

Thanks for the axislock fix, I still will support elites app it has a better control scheme! But for all my favorite game not in the app I will use speculator.
On a second note do not update passed 1.10 it could possibly make adding games harder or impossible.

I have been trying to decide over the last couple of days which one I like the look of more - Elite or this one.

Most (90% plus) of Speccy games are now freeware and no royalties actually go to the original developers. (A lot of them are out of business years ago).

I am keen on the adding your own games option as there are many games which are likely to have gone under the radar. They probably wont ever see the lite of day with some of these emulators.

How can you add your own games on Spectacular? Do you need a Jailbroken IPAD/IPOD?

ps I have the Elite on IPOD (and is currently free). Not sure whether to upgrade to the HD version or not. If I do, all the Monty games area must!!!

Vita Favourites - Walking Dead, Killzone, Borderlands 2, Final Fantasy X, Helldivers, MLB 15.
IOS favourites - Dead Space, Xcom, Shadowrun.
Multiplayer ID - Magnum0ik (use a zero)

I think the early version 'might' have been able to do this but not the latest one. Plus you can buy Julian Gollops games using Elites app so you should get them there (Plus Julian will get a share of the money)

Tough choice - I love the fact that Spectatulator just went universal, but overall I like the Elite collection, and the fact that they're paying the developers. Thrilled to send moneys to Julian Gallop for another copy of his games! (Wish they'd make a Gallop pack #2 with the remainder of them...)
