Good news, fans of classic gaming. According to AppleInsider, the previously-rejected Commodor 64 emulator app for the iPhone has now been approved. The application, made by developer Manomio, was initially rejected because it did not fall in line with Apple's SDK.

That last hurdle has apparently been crossed, and the app is now available for general consumption. For $4.99 you get the emulator, along with five games; Dragon's Den, Le Mans, Jupiter Lander, Arctic Shipwreck, and Jack Attack. More games will be added as separate apps or app packages later on. If you want a slice of old-fashioned gaming, you can download the app here.

For those of us that remember the days of the C64 and its contemporaries, this app should provide a much-needed walk down memory lane. For people too young to remember the days of 2D gaming, this app will act as a valuable historic record. Gaming has come a long, long way in the last couple of decades.Update: C64 Emulator for iPhone removed from App Store again.
