Shame it doesn't have any games made by System 3 or Ocean!

What Turrican and Jack the Nipper!

Wonder if they will do an Amiga rebirth aswell!
I can't help but feel that without a delay in loading the games by about twenty minutes to emulate the tape deck it wouldn't be the same!
If anyone's looking for C64 games for an emulator, this is a good site c64hq.hu/
I am rather disappointed to discover the keyboard is not functional and it does not really seem to be more than a console version of the C64. It basically does nothing more than I could emulate on a PC if I have to plug a keyboard in to play it. Also out of the 1,000 of games for the C64 created just to have 64 is pretty light.

It is difficult to value this at 64.99 beyond what I PIII would cost me with a little hard work to set it up.

It is good that these retro devices are being made I am just a little grumpy that people making have basically missed the point of the original versions. The C64 was a computer not a console. Still the joystick could be a highlight I would love to see a decent kempston joystick for a PC.

Just about to say the same, 69.99 at argos
Got a real one in the loft , still boxed. Wonder if its worth anyt
There are much better options out there with new recreations of the hardware around that will run all the old software, use the peripherals, etc. I still have an original machine, but the emulators work on all systems including the Raspberry Pi, so worth exploring that too really.

Not major money, but people will buy them. If it was the rarer C128 model, then you'd be looking at better money.

This is why I've jumped ship after 10 years of loyalty to iPhone.

Prices should come down, like TVs, iPhone X £1000 shocking. Should be £699 with 24 month Warranty.

I doubt it as the Electron was seriously cut down to the point it had massive limitations. More likely to get a BBC master style raspberry pi case.

Heat for the Kempston joystick!
Can anyone remember a game that you started at a train station shooting the guards I think you had to rob the train. Once done you drove the train and his is where my memory vets a bit hazy. Played it to death but can't remember the name
Nope! I was a speccy girl in my youth - oh the memories! Let's hope it's next?
what was it to start a game, run/stop button, and type READY? something or other? haha!

I wonder if you get the oldskool loading screens haha that was part of the experience.

rubbish list of games, wheres Ocean games, turrican, afterburner, robocop, batman? ,
I got a rom for flimbos quest but for amiga not c64. I hear the c64 mini is firmware customisable so I'm hoping someone works that out and I can fill it full of more roms!

This 100%. That one statement turned it from an 'oh yeah' to an 'oh no' moment. It's not even as if it has the proper 9 pin joystick ports so I can reuse the two Powerplay Cruiser sticks that I kept hold of from 'back in the day'.

I'm holding out for the full size one, that one should have a working keyboard. And maybe even a way of running other games from a memory card or similar.

I'm not convinced it's the game you describe, but 'The Fall Guy' had a train at the start.

Add the sheer horror you felt as the tape motor failed to stop at the point you knew it should and the tape played on for a few seconds until it ran to the end of the spool and the play button popped up. I spend hour upon hour trying to load what must have been about 30-40kb games.

Ye it was a game. I remember dying every time I got the train to the next station.

They're releasing a keyboard enabled one later on in the year. You really need a keyboard for the C64 which is why the C64GS cartridge system bombed.

You can buy a 2nd hand C64 and swap out the motherboard for an individual computer mk2 motherboard or a raspberry pi and a keyrah v2 for Atari joystick compatibility.

In the C64 defense it was NTSC developed so couldn't do solid vibrant colours. With superior PAL we had awesome bright colours and the Amstrad was RGB aswell compared to crappy RF and composite video. I agree that it always looked washed out compared to the Amstrad and Sinclair/Spectrum systems
