This has worried me a bit! Do you have reason to expect they wouldn't? Last time I dusted my C64 off was about a decade ago and they worked then.
HEAT OP (y) Good solid dealing. I might take a punt on this! ;)
Good old Rob Hubbard. Soundtrack to my youth.
Don't these just basically contain a tiny single board computer and loads of air? Seems a bit silly, they could make it a lot thinner if they wanted to.
I don't agree that playing older games (I grew up with Speccys, from 48K to 128K +2) is an 'utterly crap experience', but feel that for my it's only really nostalgia value, normally a quick blast every so often when the mood takes me. I actually quite like the shorter gameplay experience compared to most modern games, given that my attention span is very small these days!

lol. was just looking on Amazon into whether I can get a USB joystick to play it from a mac via an emulator
I loved Emlyn Hughes Soccer back in the day. Played it a few years ago and it was terrible :D
Matchday 2, was slower, but that allowed proper sliderule passes and build up play...
How did I not know about that game (Matchday II)?. Must've been poorly marketed and there was no internet of note in those times. Just seen it was reviewed in Zzap Feb 1988 and scored 90%. Emlyn Hughes got 90% in the November issue. I reckon Emlyn was better based on the reviews but would be interested to test it out. Microprose soccer had the best tournament features. Found it funny how E Hughes only could have a certain number of players on screen at the same time so if you ran one out of the screen, they disappeared and went back to their default position. The penalties and fouls were quite realistic in Emlyn Hughes and you could pass and chip in different angles and styles depending on which direction you put the joystick in and the order in which you released the fire button after choosing a direction. If you centred the joystick after choosing a direction before releasing fire it chipped at a different angle than if you released fire before returning it to the centre and the longer you pressed the more power, etc. very clever stuff and good for hand eye coordination etc.
Yes, I know the C16 was inferior, but after the Atari console, we were amazed! 2 player on the same team, Matchday 2 was the best footy game on the c64...

True, but the government are supposed to pay for the upkeep. Of course they then fobbed most of it off on to the National Lottery. I can remember when you had to pay to get in - the tsunami of tightwad Japanese tourists coming in when it became free to enter at 90 minutes/2 hours before closing time (I forget which).
Someone's got to pay for the free entry!! I'd rather pay a bit more in the shop or restaurant than have Merlin take over and charge £50 each just to get in.
I love the Science Museum, I used to take my son 2-3 times a year when he was young, even though it was a 2 1/2 hour drive each way. But the shop prices are stupidly high, even at 50% off, you can usually get it cheaper somewhere else.
