THIS IS A UNIVERSAL APP:
- when you run this universal application on a small-screen device, you'll see the iPhone / iPod Touch version and when you run the app on a larger-screen device, you'll see the HD, iPad-only version
- any in-app purchases you make from within this universal app will be available on both your small-screen and larger-screen iOS devices AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.
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…
“…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 Apple’s 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 Pack #1 to #3 of the App is a work-in-progress, a rough diamond if you like and that we’re committed to developing the App over the weeks, months and indeed years ahead.
This App contains one C64 Game, specifically:
- Summer Games
It also contains an in-App ‘shop’, offering the next three packs. (Pack #1 priced at £2.99/€4.49/US$4.99 - this pack contains nine C64 games. "Packs #2 & #3 - priced at £1.49/€1.79/US$1.99 per pack - each pack contains three C64 games.)
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
- option of portrait or (full-screen) landscape play / display modes
- authentic ‘C64’ sound
