Do Game take payment straight away?
No way am i giving them money then waiting a year...

They must be 30% chance of them going bust in next 12 months (opinion)

It says payment is upto 7 days before release date
Wow that's a ridiculous wait, heat for effort
I think the release date is wrong... It says early 2018 elsewhere on the web... possibly Dec 2017?
Speedball 2, Paradroid and Armalyte the pick there for me. Not sure how well they'll hold up though - Amiga Mini would have been awesome.

Releases March IIRC
Still have my original and I can play it today!!!.. well tomorrow by the time I get a game to load!
Don't want to knit pick (well ok yes I do) but the C64 never had 64K RAM. It was about 38K at best as I recall. The rest was used for the O/S as ROM
I'd certainly be keen to try one of these, especially if I could get it to play Son of Blagger, Impossible Mission, Beach Head and Raid over Moscow

...however, roll on Amiga Classic so I can play Super Cars 2, Kick Off 3, Cannon Fodder, Chaos Engine, Fire Power, Giana Sisters....the list goes on
Beach head! Crumbs... I'd forgotten about that one!
The date is probably a placeholder.

[GEEK MODE ON]

That is an old Spectrum vs C64 argument which, if you wanted to use BASIC it had 38911 bytes free (0801-9FFF) sure. But that was just for BASIC instruction lines nothing else....>99% of all games were 100% machine code

It has a 64K address map and the BASIC ROM at A000-BFFF and the Kernal ROM at E000-FFFF that could be switched out, and there was even RAM under the video/sound RAM at D000-DFFF that could be switched in too. Of course there was also RAM from 0001-0800 & C000-CFFF.

So RAM from 0001-FFFF, and even more than 64K if you count the double switched RAM at D000-DFFF.

So, it had over 64K of RAM. And you could even use the ROMs at the same time you just had to make sure you didn't call the ROM code from the RAM underneath each bank.

Personally, I'll stick to using emulators though - free and less clutter.

That's about how long the games used to take to load...
or just buy a computer from a carboot sale and emulate all this crap they keep rereleasing

Son of Blagger. OMG. Not thought about that game for many many years. Awesome game.

You can play Giana Sisters on the C64, I have the original so the ROM is probably available somewhere to sideload once it's been hacked.

Also have Cannon Fodder for my Amiga and it's still awesome.
This is a bit too high tech for me. I'm waiting for the abacus mini.

Not 100% correct. The CPU could only reference 64KB of memory, this would mean when loading the basic interpreter it would only allow use of 38KB of RAM due the need to access the ROM as well (the BASIC interpreter was one of the ROM functions). However, when you didn't need some functions of the ROM you could swap out to RAM. If you swapped out all functions you could in theory access all 64KB of RAM, which the C64 did have.

I would love to be able to play The Chaos Engine again! Is the Amiga Classic a possibility?

You worry about losing a small portion of your £36 on the off chance GAME could go bust?

The company is constantly on the brink. My local store has shut down and reopened (barely) twice in the past 7 years or so. I'm not keen on chucking 36 quid down the drain which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise considering the name of this site and its purpose. In addition to that the elite service is crap and basically your trading 36 quid to 36 game credit for what exactly? Crap deals on stuff they sell that no one cares about and frankly I'm fed of up the staff trying to get me to sign up for it every time I trade something in.

I stand corrected then!
Very informative that, thanks.

It'd be mad if no-one brought one out. I know you can do it with the Raspberry Pi and it makes for a pretty good experience but it just needs the same sort of treatment that's been done to the C64 and SNES Mini.

Id buy one without question

​It would have been great to have it's rival International karate in there too. I've suddenly got a craving to play beachead 2. That was an amazing head to head multiplayer game. I really hope they give the option to download additional games for this via usb stick.
