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 :)
