The Commodore 64 iPhone App used to cost $4.99. But earlier this month the developer ran a promotion where you could get it for free for a limited time — and downloads increased enough to convince the company to continue offering it for free… forever.
You can still buy games for the C64 emulator using the in-game app store for $0.99 to $1.99 a pop, so nobody’s going out of business based on this decision. But the app still comes with 8 free games, including Dragon’s Den, Arctic Shipwreck, International Tennis, and Jupiter Lander.
Commodore 64 is available as a free download for the iPhone and iPod touch from the iTunes App Store.
