Cinemaware has just brought its gangster-themed adventure The King of Chicago to iPhone and iPad.

Known for developing Amiga games based around movie genres, Cinemaware has been more active recently, following a successful Kickstarter campaign to revive its '90 flying game Wings.

In the meantime, though, the team has decided to take the concrete shoes off another of its Amiga creations: the mobster-populated point-and-click adventure The King of Chicago

Following the story of an up-and-coming wise guy, the game has you doing drive-bys, executing hits, and regularly inviting your enemies to watch their backs and sleep with the fishes. 

This is a direct emulation of the original Amiga game, so don't expect enhanced graphics or a fancy new UI. You should, however, expect loading screens, a janky midi score, and a trunkful of nostalgia.

You can download The King of Chicago from the App Store for £1.49 / $1.99 now. Alternatively, forgedaboutit.
