The Commodore 64 was an early 8-bit home computer that was released in the early eighties and is now legendary for its fun computer game ports. During its lifetime, it sold over 17 million units and dominated the market for about four years shortly following its 1982 debut. One reason Commodore was so successful was the fact that it could be purchased at about any retail store, instead of the specialty electronic stores. Its ready availability made it seem perfect for anyone.
There were about 10,000 commercial software titles produced especially for the Commodore 64 and many of them were games. A wide variety of C64 emulators allow people with access to a modern PC to play these old games on newer machines that would be otherwise unable to convert the information successfully.
The C64 Mini is a retro console with 64 classic games from Commodore 64, the world’s best-selling computer. It connects to the TV through an HDMI port giving us the opportunity to bring back 64 of those retro games in a mini “plug and play” version. The C64 Mini is a reduced version of the original machine and its keyboard is not functional, but we can connect one through the USB ports. In addition to including 64 games in memory, it allows us to program in BASIC . The games preserve the original 4: 3 format with an impeccable image through HDMI, and the most nostalgic ones can apply CRT, Sharp or TV lines filters so that the appearance of the games are same as you may remember.
