Found 28th May 2012
It's been a long time coming but it's finally here....(well I've just found it)

Available on iPad HD at £8.99 and also on iPhone £5.99

I think this is a smashing price for something you can play time and time again and you don't have to wait on loading times

Reminisce your childhood years with 100 Spectrum Games

Remember waiting for ages on the game to finally load
Hearing the Beeeeeee beep
Playing your favourites for hours upon hours
The 48k burning your lap

My best games were,
Chuckle Egg, Skool Daze - Back to Skool, Jet Set Willy, Manic Miner, Monty on the Run, Everyone's a Wally

£9 for a Spectrum emulator? That's a bargain...
Great for all you sado Speccy owners, however heat for a good deal.

Can someone investigate a similar deal for the true computer of the '80's the BBC!!!

Await the abuse!
Would be worth mentioning that this is for iOS in the title and description.
Love the reference to HD...heat added for happy memories
Used to love playing Match Point (with the biafran ball boys) & Match Day.

Nah, you'd never manage to run a spectrum emulator on the BBC B !
I love Skool Daze
I search the app store and I can only find 100 Greatest Hits £5.99, not the HD one???
On the iPhone screen the speccy graphics will almost look smooth !

It would be immoral!
For those of you running android, you can get a FREE Spectrum emulator called "Marvin" (play.google.com/sto…ils?id=cz.dejvice.rc.Marvin&hl=en)
and it integrates into "World of Spectrum* " (http://www.worldofspectrum.org/)
*(which BTW is a legit, legal site)

You then have 100's of free games/ software available via a free emulator.

FREE I say, FREE!

I remember my first fight at school was over who had the best computer, his was a spectrum mine a commodore 64. I wonder if today people fight between the xbox360 and the PS3.
Beeeeeeeeee ...... BLIP! ........ Beeeeeeeeeeeeeee Biddly biddly biddly biddly biddly biddly biddly....

The soundtrack to my youth.
Lazer Squad was the game changer.


I could still draw Sterner Regnix's house out for you now, room for room.

For all those people who live near a Tescos, dont pay £1.20 for a two litre carton of milk, stick it up your jumper and shop lift it instead.

Free I say, Free!!

You can also probably get this free if you jailbroke your iPhone

but I choose not to so this is perfect for me
Is this available on iphone, or just ipad, because it doesn't come up when I search 'spectrum 100', or 'spectrum greatest'?

Hey matey

here you go 100 Spectrum games £5.99
Back then some of us had parents who wouldn't spend loads of money on computer games, and my 50p a week just about bought The Dandy & The Beeno...so where are the games that us poor kids had to play? The ones that came bundled in the box, or were found in the 99p Clearance bin in John Menzies?
Give me an app with the really crap early 80's stuff in it, like Horace Goes Skiing (aka Horace never gets across the bloody road), Luna Crabs, The Pyramid, and Booty. And 'adventure' games like The Hobbit and The Castle. That would be a proper blast from the past!

I always managed to get myself locked in a room with the key on the other side. Never did work it out - I was only about 7 though.

You could always tell it was going to be a good game if you got a really cool graphic on the screen when the red and cyan wiggly lines changed to blue and yellow.

They're for PC. And they're a con because the emulator and all the games are available for free on PC. Google WorldofSpectrum
