Following the english version (Broken Sword) released in January (5,49 euros), we can now find the french verison (Les Chevaliers de Baphomet – The Director’s Cut) at the AppStore, priced 3,99 euros.

Following the C64 emulator for iPhone, an Amiga emulator is planned. The 68000 emulation part has been made mainly in ARM assembly, in order to get full speed performance. We can watch a selection of 100 original Amiga games. However the games will be provided at a one basis (distinct application for each game – the emulator will be hidden), and they may not be the best ones (besides limited choice).
