Nostalgia hits the App Store with a Commodore 64 emulator

Nostalgia hits the App Store with a Commodore 64 emulator
Nowadays you can find the iPhone running various kinds of games that appeal to all ages – with some even sporting some slick 3D graphics that come close to their portable gaming counterparts. For old school gamers growing up during a more simple gaming era, they'll be happy to relive memories thanks to a Commodore 64 emulator available on the App Store. It might be considered a small victory because it's the first emulator to be approved for use on the iPhone and runs code within the application. Those memories from long ago will cost you $4.99 to download and will come packed with five games – Dragon's Den,  Le Mans, Jupiter Lander, Arctic Shipwreck, and Jack Attack. You'll have your choice of running it in landscape or portrait orientations. So if that kid in you wants to go back to that age when things were less complicated, then go on ahead and pick up this app to catch up on old times.

Now all they need are emulators for ColecoVision, Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Sega Genesis, and NES... then it will be perfect.

They actually have many of those emulators already including a playstation emulator as well. However, you need to jb the phone to get them...

I've jb'ed 3 iPhones and never had any problems. You can always do a full restore which removes the jb and sets it back to factory settings, so there's no way to know it was ever jb'ed... Sometimes extra luxuries come at a cost. If it weren't for the ability to jb, I might not even own the phone, but it opens up every door imagineable when you do, so IMO well worth it.
