Sega emulator returning soon as Blue Tomato to the Windows Phone Marketplace

Blue Tomato

If you've been following the saga of Sonic's Jewels 7 (SJ7), you'll remember that the popular Sega Master System and Game Gear emulator was due for a nice sound update. That update actually did hit the Marketplace but only for a few hours before it was pulled due to a copyright claim by Sega.

Our own Rafael Rivera worked with the developer to sort through the claim, which revolved around the use of Sonic the Hedgehog and the dev was quoted as saying it will return. The condition of returning though would be to shed all of Sega's copyrights--images and names--in order for it to presumably pass the Marketplace certification. We spoke of this on the last podcast where the name "Blue Tomato" was tossed out as the new name.

Blue Tomato

Now we got word that Blue Tomato is in the certification process in the Marketplace and the developer has posted some screenshots, showing off the new artwork. The most pertinent question though many of you have is this: Will I have to re-buy the emulator? The answer appears to be "no" as this will by just another update to the existing Marketplace spot for the app. Certainly that should make some of you relieved.

Moreover, that sound update will be included as well as "better game loop" and Zip support, which should make things a lot easier for users. We'll keep you posted if/when the app passes and is re-available for download again.

So those with the current sonic jewels emulator, will their app just update to blue tomato or do they get to keep the original? Little confused by this post. :^)

Nice job on the graphic redesign. Looks great. I guess The name change was the best thing that ever happened to this app

So How is this any different to the SNES emulator and this one. Arent they both illegal. Also why this getting pass thru?

Oh man, I want warrio jewels sooo bad (obviously renamed) I need to get my Pokemon on. Can't figure out the getting roms on it in current form.

Yes it was too confusing for me. If he makes it like the Sonic Jewels SkyDrive integration I would buy it in a heartbeat
