Well I'm already back to announce that we have a couple of titles that we know for sure will be available when the upcoming version 1.2 of C64 hits App.store. mid-december.
A true classic is actually a free part of the update, it's the amazing fighting game Bruce Lee that will make it to the iPhone. Other fan-favourites we've gotten hold of are: Druid, Paradroid, Kikstart and Alleykat.
Be sure to check back here to get all the latest news and to post your suggestions to games and features.

Laser Squad now among the games that will be available with version 1.2, even better it will also be free! Furthermore, the version will feature switch between left and rightsided joystick. Stay tuned for more updates.
C64 is by the way on a sale for 2.99$ due to thanksgiving, get your copy here: iTunes Store
Hey everybody, we have just submitted version 1.2 of C64 for approval at Apple, and we hope to have it online just before Christmas. The version will include a lot of tweaking and improving of the controls, while also adding numerous new titles to the game catalogue. Stay tuned for more info.
Version 1.2 out now, C64 on sale for 2.99$
It's still snowing Christmas Presents! C64 Version 1.2 is now online, filled with new features, tweaked controls and free games. By downloading you'll receive Bruce Lee, Laser Squad and Samurai Warrior for free(pushing the number of free games to eleven), while you can shop for old classics in our more games feature. Currently, Apple has approved Nebulus, Alleykat, Uridium, Paradroid and Stormlord. However, a bunch of other titles will follow as soon as they are submitted and approved.
What does 1.2 feature? Well, besides the huge expansion of the games catalogue and the ability to buy games in-app, we've also made a couple of other additions and adjustments. The controls have been updated, so now you can choose which side you want the joystick to be placed. We've also added the ability to place the joystick as an icon, this way you'll get visual feedback during landscape mode. Furthermore, you no longer have to press and hold left to move left in portrait mode, you can just press around the left side of the joystick.
What else? Well, a great big part of the C64 was cheatcodes and we've made a cool little feature to help you finally beat that level in Nebulus. If the game has a trainer icon, you can flip on invincibility, infinite time or unlimited ammo, it all depends on the game.
Get the app here and now, as we are making an End of Year Sale, C64 is just 2.99$: iTunes Store
From here on we'll continue to improve the C64, getting you a steady flow of new games all the time.
If you have any suggestions, feedback or just want to pad us on the back, please do so :-)
Happy holidays everybody from Manomio and Kiloo

Space Taxi, Super Pipeline and Super Pipeline II are also fast approaching a release – all quality games ready to take you down that memory lane.

Surely good news for all you C64-afficionados out there!
In other news we’re happy to tell you that the next update will solve technical issues and update 1.6 will be a thorough controls-update.
That’s all for now, as always all your comments are welcome.

Update 1.5 available
Just a small heads-up on the Commodore 64 app:
Update 1.5 is now available for download, which takes care of a couple of bugs and adds a trainer mode for Dragons Den.
You will also notice that a certain Mr. Lee has found his way to the app, once again making it possible to do some serious kung-fu – C64 style!
As I type this we’re already working on more games filled with pure retro goodness, as well as the next update which will tweak the controls and make them more customizable!

I’m sorry to inform you that we’ve been hit by a slight setback. After securing a license deal for Paper Boy with Elite Systems, testing it and doing the implementation to our next version – we’ve just been informed that we cannot proceed with it. It appears that Warner and Elite Systems did not agree upon whether the old version of the game should be available. Elite cannot move without Warner and the consequence is that they’ve decided to cancel Paper Boy.
This situation is about as far from optimal as possible and please let us be the first to express how sorry we are. We felt sure that everything was on the right track when we had a signed agreement in our hands, but unfortunately it didn’t work out the way we had hoped. I hope you understand why we thought we had a game for you, and how sorry we are to have to inform you that it is not the case as of now.
Rest assured that we’re working very hard on some compensation for all you Paper Boy fans out there, and hopefully I will have something to announce in the middle of next week.
Have a nice weekend,

The long anticipated update 1.6 for the Commodore 64 app is now live, and this time we not only bring you improved controls but also an impressive amount of games!
15 games in total, the choice between having the joystick on the left or right and some interface customization means that this could be one of the most important updates for the app yet.
In relevant games we have now made sure, that it’s no longer possible to move the joystick on an axis not in use by the game, making the controls even more precise and responsive.
Also notice that amongst the many games you’ll find two First Star Software bundles, with two games in each for only 99¢.
Several of these new games come with OpenFeint integrated, making it possible to compete against your friends (or enemies – we don’t judge) in true retro fashion.
The entire list of games looks like this:
Super Pipeline I
Super Pipeline II
Boulder Dash® II
The two bundles:
First Star Software Bundle I
First Star Software Bundle II
Flip and Flop™
We hope you will enjoy the update, and if you have any suggestions for games you’d like to see in future updates, feel free to tell us on our facebook page: facebook.com/kiloomobile

We’re working hard on the next update for the Commodore 64 app but I thought I’d drop a line about what you can expect in the future.
We’ve got some great games in store for you, as we’ve signed a deal with System 3! This means that in a future update you’ll see:
• International Karate
• Last Ninja I, II and III
These games were quite popular back in the day, so we hope they’ll be equally cool to play on your iPhone and iPod touch!
Don’t forget that you can follow us on Facebook, where we’ll post news about our games and where you’re welcome to discuss our products, tell us what games you’d like to see in the future or just show your support.

These last days have been quite busy for us – not only did we manage to get a deal with System 3 but now we will also bring a bunch of Thalamus titles to your iPhone and iPod Touch!
The list as of now looks like this:
• Creatures II: Torture Trouble
• Hunter's Moon
• Nobby the Aardvark
This means that you will soon be able to play some of the most celebrated Commodore 64 titles ever! The fun doesn’t stop here though, as we’ve also signed a deal with Elite for Buggy Boy – one of the more addictive racers, with a great sense of speed!
As you can see a lot of titles are finding their way to the Commodore 64 app, mainly due to the great support we’ve had from you guys! If there are any titles you’d like to see, don’t hesitate to suggest them on our facebook page facebook.com/kiloomobile and we’ll see what we can do.
