Early days yet and the website isn't updated with much but looks like Matthew smith and elite will be creating a new iOS game. Hope it's good!

So how do you suggest he sells the game? He already does business with Elite with his older games and signed prints. What's wrong with iOS? Dirt cheap games. Good test for his new title

What do you suggest?

I like giving money to whoever sells the games I want to play. I have an old iPhone now pretty much because Llamasoft were exclusive to iOS for a while.

How is handing money to Google any better than handing money to Apple?

he doesnt sound too well on that video....

I know he has had problems in the past, but if I saw him on the bus or in the street I would just think hobo jakey

Looking forward to the game though...jet Set Willy was utterly terrible though....

manic miner is still on of the finest platform games on the spec

Haven't you heard? Apple are pure evil, selling high quality gadgetry to innocent unsuspecting consumers whilst giving developers a 70/30 split.

Google are innocent & pure, only doing things for the benefit of humanity for absolutely no financial gain (probably).
Oh and if you want to do little social experiments on our forum don't post about them on your own you plum - Darren@Retro Gamer

Android is more open source. It runs on more devices, its not used by Hipsters and its not hypnotised thousands of its users to buy the latest thing that is just the same thing with a higher number

Anyway,
Wonder what his new game is going to be?

You don't like Apple because a section of their customers are idiots? You may as well stay away from gaming altogether if that's your criteria for company acceptability.

Bit like life.

On the plus side the whole "Ive got a iPhone" thing has died out
