Har du som undertegnede været så fjollet at smide din elskede Commodore 64 (C64) ud i mange år siden, kan du den 29. marts anskaffe dig The C64 Mini. C-64 relanceres 36 år efter debuten i 1982.

The C64 Mini bliver produceret af britiske Retro Games Ltd og kan smides direkte på dit tv via HDMI. Den har også to USB-porte. Det er planen at der i løbet af 2018 også vil blive lanceret en “brødkasse” i fuld størrelse.

Du kan springe forbi The C-64 website, hvor du kan både se og læse mere om C64 “reborn”.

31 January 2018 – The fully licensed re-imagining of the 80’s bestselling home computer – THEC64® Mini – will be released on the 29 March 2018

Developed by Retro Games Ltd – and distributed by Koch Media – THEC64® Mini is half the size of the original C64 and is a fully functioning home computer that connects directly to your television and comes with two USB ports for the joystick and a keyboard.

Launched in 1982, the C64 home computer went on to dominate the home computer scene throughout the 1980s. Millions of units were sold across the world and have a special place in the hearts of its former owners.

35 years later and it’s back as the reimagined THEC64® Mini. Plugging into any modern TV via its HDMI port, users can play any one of the 64 licensed classic pre-installed games. This includes games from developers like Epyx, Gremlin Graphics, Hewson and The Bitmap Brothers boasting titles such as California Games, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe, Paradroid and Impossible Mission.

Also included is the classic puzzler Boulder Dash®. The game sees ‘Rockford’ cavern crawling in search of gems while trying to avoid creatures, cave-ins and gas explosions. Stephan Berendsen, President of BBG Entertainment GmbH said: “Retro Games and BBG brought back together what has always belonged dating back to 1984 – the C64 and Boulder Dash®.”

Most of these games were rated over 90% by leading publications of the day, with many winning coveted awards. From sports to shooters, platforms to puzzles, there is a plethora of titles to keep the most discerning retro enthusiast happy.

“We are delighted to bring to retail THEC64 mini and let both original fans of the machine, and all-new generations of games players discover this amazing system, as well as maybe even have a go at programming it for themselves!”, said Paul Andrews, Retro Games’ Managing Director.

  1. Alt efter pris kunne det godt friste. Men der mangler nu mange fede titler. Giana Sisters kan selvfølgeligt ikke komme med pga. det er ulovligt, men ellers spil som Bubble Bobble, Ghostbusters, Donald Ducks Playground, Commando, Rambo, Rainbow Island osv.

    Boulder Dash er nok det fedeste spil jeg lige kan spotte i blandt dem der er.

  2. Mange gode titler, der lige falder i øjnene.

    Boulderdash
    Cosmic Causeway
    Everyone’s a Wally
    Impossible Mission I og II
    Paradroid (en super klassiker)
    Pitstop II
    Skool Daze (holder 100)
    Trailerblazer
    Who Dares Wins II
    Winter Games

    Mange gode titler. Dog også et par åbenlyse mangler.
    Exile
    Laser Squad
    Giana Sisters
    Bubble Bubble
    Hollywood or Bust
    Bup N’ Rumble
    IK+
    The Last Ninja osv

    Men en ok fin samling.

  3. Genialt men venter på den (forhåbentlige) Amiga opfølger

    Mon overhovedet keyboardet virker? Det virker udueligt lille set ifht til hendes hånd?

    Og hvor er Barbarian og Defender of the Crown?

  4. lidt sen svar. Ville gerne have set Warhawk til den. kender udmærket programmøren bag det spil (har været med diverse projekter sammen med ham med det seneste) , og er i øvrigt i gang med noget musik til hans andet port af præcist det spil, Spectrum Next versionen.
