Apple approved Gridlee yesterday (https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/gridlee/id595117070?mt=8). It runs on imame4all, whose developer actually released a version that could run on non-jailbroken devices: http://code.google.com/p/imame4all/ so it doesn't really matter if (more like when) Apple pulls Gridlee. Anyone now can get some old school arcade action going on iOS.
This is a reworking of the default skin. The d-pad is heavily based on the best damn controller ever made: SEGA's Genesis controller. All buttons and the d-pad (a joystick is also included) include all the various push states.
This is pretty much another go at: http://drbl.in/cEJn (which I did about a year ago).
Hit up the Action attachment for a shot of it on the iPad. RealPixels for an unabashed 1:1 shot of the entire UI.
