Bring Jack The Ripper Back To Life

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Throughout history there have been far too many people who have instilled fear with killing sprees.  Looking back on these monsters with curiosity would take an especially morbid soul, so the announcement of an iOS app dedicated to the study of Jack The Ripper is equally shocking.  Wow, I guess there really is an app for everyone.

Over a century after the monster's killing spree came to an end, Jack the Ripper still somehow remains a household name.  For this very reason, the new app Ripperpedia: The Jack the Ripper Who’s Who is hoping to cut through much of the urban legend surrounding this historic yet deplorable character.  Chock-full of first hand accounts, police data, even photos and videos from the actual crime scenes, the app is sure to be an interesting download for those with an eye for history.

Just be careful, I wouldn't want to be caught dead (pun intended - Ed.)with an piece of software like this in my download history.  Call me crazy, but I hear spouses frown upon the study of serial killers.

Elite Systems has built up quite a reputation for their iOS conversions of 8-bit classic games such as Skool Daze, Chuckie Egg, Jack the Nipper, Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy with the ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection offering a great nostalgic experience.

More memorable titles from days gone by are set to be released soon with another 9 titles from three different countries of origin added to the roster. Originally stemming from North America comes action adventure title Black Magic, supply and demand orientated multiplayer game M.U.L.E and RPG Alternate Reality: The City. From Germany comes shooter Enforcer, soccer management sim Bundesliga Manager and R-Type clone Denaris. Finally, from UK studios, is sci-fi side scrolling shoot em up Uridium, puzzle shooter Paradroid and my personal favorite ninja based platformer First Samurai.

All these retro delights will be available soon with auto save functionality and iDaptive Controls, meaning there will be user-definable controls to make things even simpler for gamers.

We'll be sure to keep track of the development of these titles. Why not check out ZX Spectrum: Elite Collection in the mean time?
