Retro gaming fans are in for a treat with the announcement today from Elite Systems that a new Sinclair ZX Spectrum compendium app is to be released on April 20, to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the launch of the console. The app, which is called Sinclair ZX Spectrum 100 Greatest Hits, includes such classics as Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy, Chuckie Egg, and much, much more. Also, when you download the paid version of the app, which from 20-27 April will have a reduced price of £8.99/Euro10.49/US$12.99 for the iPad version and £5.99/Euro6.99/US$8.99 for the iPhone version, you will get the Bruce Lee ZX game completely free.

Commenting upon the launch plans, Elites MD Steve Wilcox said, The Apps provide the opportunity to build a collection, of the most popular SINCLAIR ZX SPECTRUM games from the 80s and 90s.
Elite states that the app will include the following features:
- auto save on exiting any game

Elite says that unlike its other ZX Spectrum iOS apps, the special anniversary app will not be updated with extra games in the future, as it is a one-off anniversary special.
