A new game which has been released recently in the App Store seems to be offering a little more than meets the eye. Gridlee was a game previously developed for the arcade back in 1982 but not released until now. As many would expect, itís a simple game but whatís interesting behind it is that it is built on the MAME4iOS engine. The information comes from the Touch Arcade, whose forum members made the discovery. The following was mentioned by the site:

When word of this hit our forums, readers were quick to pull out iExplore and begin digging about the app's directory structure looking for a ROM folder. Well, it's in there, and sure enough, if one copies other MAME ROMs into that folder, the Gridlee app starts up with the standard MAME4iOS ROM listing, allowing for a great many games beyond just Gridlee to be played on the iPhone or iPad in this Universal app.
As with the previous app that offered similar functionality, Gridlee is likely to be pulled from the App Store very quickly. Those of you who are interested in grabbing a working MAME emulator for your iPhone or iPad should get this game right now. To make the deal better than it already is, Gridlee is currently available for free.


The previous app that offered similar functionality was iMAME and it was pulled from the App Store back in 2011 with a small bundle of included games. It was pulled when Apple discovered that more games could be added by dropping ROMís into a folder and Gridlee is no different. One thing to point out is that the game offers full iCade support since itís a MAME emulator. Those of you who have an iCade shoul definitely not pass this one up.
