More retro classics to hit iPhone

The classic space war and trading title Elite has become a part of the library of retro C64 titles that are being ported over to the iPhone.

Elite was created back in 1984 for the BBC Micro computer and stood out for its intelligent game design and, for the time, advanced graphics.

Elite is a strategic game of intergalactic commerce, in which you pilot a wire-framed space craft around the vacuum of space looking for planets to visit and fellow travellers with whom to trade.

Elite hails from the era of video game creation when small groups of bedroom programmers could have international hits with their titles.

International Karate has also been successfully emulated on the iPhone, offering humour as well as unique controls.

Release dates for the games have yet to be confirmed.
