"The C64 is back, this time full-sized with a working keyboard for the dedicated retro home-computer fan.
Featuring three switchable modes – C64, VIC 20, and Games Carousel.
Connect to any modern TV via HDMI for crisp 720p HD visuals, at 60 Hz or 50 Hz.
An updated joystick, now featuring micro switches, companions the hardware making the included games even more fun than ever.
The Games Carousel has 64 pre-installed games including classics such as California Games, Paradroid and Boulder Dash, with new additions like Attack of the Mutant Camels, Hover Bovver, Iridis Alpha, and Gridrunner.
Topped off with the recently released shoot ’em up Galencia and text adventure Planet of Death to let you relive the glory days of true keyboard gaming! Plus, THEC64® allows you to load and save your own files and games via USB stick (including multi-disk titles) and program in C64 or VIC 20 BASIC."
Just recently received one of these.🎅
It's really just a software emulator (albeit a very good one!) in a Commodore 64 shell -- but it works really well.
It's a great way to get back into BASIC or Assembly coding.🤓 Or, of course, play your favourite C64 games.
Many purists are complaining, but if you're not prepared to pick up an original off eBay or check out the more expensive alternatives -- this is well worth picking up.
