Elite Systems, the long established UK based developer and electronic publisher of games for portable, mobile and other devices has released a "concept" video exploring how the legendary 1984 ZX Spectrum game - Daley Thompson's Decathlon - could look / play if updated for the iPhone / iPad.

The video is available to view at Elite's website: http://elite-systems.co.uk/daley

"The video contrasts the original ZX Spectrum "Decathlon" game with an update for the iPhone / iPod. It explores how the original 2D decathlon game could be represented in 3D; how the familiar button-bashing" play controls could be combined with bespoke touch-screen inputs specifically designed for each individual event and how many of the 10 events could be represented. On the eve of London 2012, the video's intended to celebrate Daley's achievements at the Olympic Games and we hope it will be widely shared."

"The video features packing art originally created in 1984, by Bob Wakelin."
