Modern Review: Sinclair ZX Spectrum 100 Greatest Hits HD iOS


When I was at school all those years ago, the biggest debate that raged in my circle had nothing to do with football, but everything to do with the Spectrum or C64. Fast forward to today, can all the disputation in the past be settled with an iPad application?
