App Description

This forth update arrived in June '13.

- 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 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 nine packs. (Pack #1 priced at £2.99/€4.49/US$4.99 - this pack contains nine C64 games. "Packs #2 to #9 - 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


What We Did Recently:
- announced the launch of this App ‘C64: Elite Collection Free’, a universal App for all iOS devices. (Also available in a paid version, which includes ten C64 games).

What We Did Previously:
- reviewed our plans for updating the Apps. Settled upon: making one new pack, each pack containing three new C64 games, available to purchase from the in-App 'shop' every other month, more frequently if possible, commencing Jan ‘13.
- reviewed our plans for raising awareness of the Apps. Settled upon: releasing a small number of C64 games every other month, more frequently if possible, as stand-alone Apps, (as well as making them available as in-App purchases).
- published in full at www.elite-systems.co.uk (and here) the list of games currently included, or currently included as in-App purchases, in C64: Elite Collection / HD for iPhone & iPod Touch / iPad:
