It´s finally here – the best-selling single personal computer of all time, with over 30 million units sold worldwide. I for one love my Commodore 64. (I still have it connected with both Tape and Disc drive working like a charm) I rememeber waiting over 10 mins to load up such classic games as The Last Ninja, Target Renegade, Ghosts n’ Goblins, Bombjack, Dragon’s Lair just to name a few .. I could go on and on but i’ll stop right there.
Now thanks to the great people over at Manomio you can play the classics once again on your iPhone and many many more once they become available via the App Store.

** SPECIAL NOTE from MANOMIO **
Unfortunately, Apple has pulled the C64 Application from their store as it was discovered by some users that it was possible to enable the Basic program through the interface. We have now fixed the issue and our application has been re-submitted for approval by Apple.
We thank you all for your support and fingers crossed we hope to launch again over the next few days.
