    I would love to play a version of the old C64 classic Boulder Dash on iPad. The Amiga version was great too. Does anyone know of a decent clone of this on iOS?? :D

    I just put "boulder dash" into the App Store search engine, there were a few other results as well.

    The original game was by either Brøderbund or Electronic Arts, can't remember which. Could be worth a look around their websites to see if its been ported. Hard to believe that game ran in less than 64kb.

    I know it was an amazing game. This remake of it isn't that great, the retro mode isn't in pure 2D it's still rendered in 3D like the rest of the game.

    I'd still like to see the original version of Elite ported to the iPad. The gameplay was great, and only let down by the horrible graphics. Using the accelerometers of the iPad, and sorting out the graphics would make it a winner IMO.

    I think we should start a retro thread with all available Arcade, Atari, Nintendo, Commodore, Amstrad, Spectrum and Sega games.
