    Released back in the 80's for the BBC B microcomputer, Repton (a boulderdash / puzzle game) is coming to the iPhone as iRepton (www.iRepton.com). This was one of the fastest sell games in its day and is just as fun to play as it was back in the day!

    Very Cool. Loved the Archimedes version.

    There as so many BBC/Archimedes/RiscPC games that would work really well on the iPhone- Stunt Car Racer and Elite spring to mind :)

    Just putting the final touches to iRepton. Will be submitting to the App store at the end of the week. iRepton have all the original graphics and sounds, as well as a new enhanced graphics and sound mode. It will contain all the original levels from Repton 1. We will also be including the optional level packs, Glacier, Cascade, Junior Repton, Young Repton and Avalanche. (A total of 84 levels!).

    Just bought it. Its brilliant :D

    Love the retro version, complete with 8-bit sound.

    I think I last played Repton on my Acorn A4, and soon it will be on Apple's!
