Product Description

Review

"This gadget is based on the classic Commodore 64 and it's so popular in the US that 40,000 were sold on the first day of release." -- Sun Online, Dec 17, 2004

Manufacturer's Description

The original C64 is recognised by the Guinness Book Of Records as the highest selling home computer of all time with sales exceeding 30 million units (approximately 6 million of which were sold in the UK alone!). So, you can't fail to impress with this unit which plugs direct into your TV or video whether it be for a hard-core gamer or just someone who wants to hark back to the 'good old days' the Commodore 64 DTV makes a great present!

Built-In Games: Bull Riding, Championship Wrestling, Cyberdyne Warrior, Cybernoid, Cybernoid II, Eliminator, Exolon, Firelord, Flying Disc, Gateway to Apshai, Impossible Mission, Impossible Mission 2, Jumpman Junior, Paradroid, Pitstop, Pitstop 2, Ranarama, Silicon Warrior, Speedball, Summer Games, Sumo Wrestling, Super Cycle, Surfing, Sword of Fargoal, Tower Toppler, Uridium, Winter Games, World Karate Champion A, World Karate Champion B, Zynaps

N.B. This unit is the NTSC (US) version as the PAL (UK) version isn't even available yet! (and won't be until Summer 2005). However, it works with most TVs manufactured over the last five years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Retro fun 5 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This little device brings back memories as you play through C64 classics, including Impossible Mission 2 and Pitstop 2.

The games are faithful to the original, even the original loading screen is present. Effectively, this is a C64 on a chip!

The output is an RGB lead with mono sound.

My only criticisms would be that the joystick can be a bit stiff to try and use, it doesn't move as freely as real C64 joysticks did.
Also, the battery casing is held on by a screw. As it takes 4x AA batteries, I use rechargeables, it is a bit of a pain getting a screwdriver out every time the batteries run low.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blast From The Past 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Played this quite a lot on Christmas day, what a great blast from the past. Dropped a star as the list of games could be a lot bigger I would think. Also kinda tricky working out how to play the games with no instructions!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Retro Fun 7 Dec 2012
By Claire
Verified Purchase
Devastatingly simple, I was almost disappointed by the lack of technical gumph when I opened this product. However, when I realised it was properly childs play to connect and use and the games were exactly how I remember them, I was won over. There's no frills cos we didn't need them in the 80s! The joystick is on the small side but my hands are bigger than last time I played and it didn't affect the playability of the games. Loved the 'loading' screen. This game is a great gift for anyone who was a kid in the 80s or who likes retro games that are totally unaltered.
