    It took Apple a while, but it is finally here.

    Way to distribute ROMs of pirated games, Apple. LMAO

    Very nice. (Thinks of other people taking advantage of this emulator...)

    Pulled from the app store. Seems Apple did not like the trick that you could get to the (officially disabled) basic interpreter simply by resetting the C64.

    I did some tests and it seems the emulator (which btw is based on the Frodo C64 emu) has some serious problems running more complex games, sadly some of them belonging to my old favorites like Turrican II, Creatures I & II and Oil Imperium. On the other hand, more simple games like the awesome M.U.L.E. and Bubble Bobble run without a hitch; Katakis also works, but the controls are so laggy that the game is essentially not playable.
