Commodore Amiga Classic Defender Of The Crown Hits The App Store

Commodore-Amiga-Defender-Of-The-Crown-Hits-The-App-StoreBeing one of the most memorable Commodore Amiga games ever released, it was only a matter of time before the 1986 hit was ported across more modern platforms. Manomio, the self proclaimed deliverer of classic games to the Apple iPhone and iPad, has brought an emulated version of the medieval strategy game over to the iOS devices.

Upon arrival on the Amiga, Defender of the Crown brought a whole new level of gaming to the home computer, offering a never seen before detail with in game graphics. But the detail was only half of it, underneath the vibrant pixels lies one devious, yet engrossing challenge to conquer England (with the help of Robin Hood).

The emulated version for the iPhone and iPad has arrived on the AppStore for just $2.99, leaving us with the hope that Manomio is due to deliver us a wide range of Commodore Amiga revivals in the near future.

The Apple AppStore destroys the Android Market for reasons like this... *sigh* Though I love my Droid, I'm ready for them to pick up the pace!! The emulated sound was a bit... eh. Dunno if that was because of the video quality, though. Either way, pretty neat... It'd be neat to see a lot more revivals like this.
