100 Greatest Hits app brings Spectrum games to iPad for £6

If, like many of those residing within T3 Towers, the ZX Spectrum opened your eyes to video games, a new iPad app featuring 100 of the computer's most iconic titles may just be of interest

 

The 30th anniversary of the ZX Spectrum home computer and the commemorative Google Doodle has got us feeling all nostalgic for the 8-bit era, so we're glad to see Elite Systems Ltd has decided to furnish our iPads with 100 iconic games.

The 100 Greatest Hits app arrives for just £5.99, actually it's Bruce Lee for £5.99 and promises 25 additional game packs, each consisting of four titles for no additional fee.

The games feature automatic auto-saves, complete with the original box art and instructions and the iDaptive touchscreen control system.

Rather than beat around the bush and list highlights, here's the full list of titles you can acquire for less than six pence a shot:
