The C64 Mini: a gaming blast from the past

In 1982 the 8 bit world was rocked by the Commodore 64, or C64 home computer. For $60 you can relive the glory.

Once the most popular home computer around, Commodore's C64 was an amazing follow-up to the Pet and the VIC-20. The games were fun, and there were a lot of them. I was an Apple ][ user for most of this time period, and I think Commodore users had more fun. The Amiga really kicked ass.

Included are many games I'd love to go back and play again: Temple of Apshai, Impossible Mission, California Games, Boulder Dash. The list goes on, they've included 64 titles:

64 built in games: Alleykat, Anarchy, The Arc of Yesod, Avenger, Battle Valley, Boulder Dash, Break Dance, California Games, Chip's Challenge, Coil Cop, Confuzion, Cosmic Causeway, Cyberdyne Warrior, Cybernoid, Cybernoid II, Deflektor, Destroyer, Everyone's a Wally, Firelord, Gateway to Apshai, Gribbly's Day Out, Heartland, Herobotix, Highway Encounter, Hunter's Moon, Hysteria, Impossible Mission, Impossible Mission II, IO, Jumpman, Jumpman 2, Mega-Apocalypse, Mission A.D., Monty on the Run, Netherworld, Nobby the Aardvark, Nodes of Yesod, Paradroid, Pitstop II, Ranarama, Robin of the Wood, Silicon Warrior, Skate Crazy, Skool Daze, Snare, Speedball, Speedball 2, Spindizzy, Street Sports Baseball, Street Sports Basketball, Street Sports Soccer, Summer Games II, Super Cycle, Sword of Fargoal, Temple of Apshai Trilogy, Thing on a Spring, Tower Toppler, Trailblazer, Uridium, West Bank, Who Dares Wins II, Winter Games, World Games, Zynaps

Hard to go too wrong for $60, but be forewarned the keyboard is decorative and typing has to be done via controller. The device has 2 USB ports, is software upgrade-able, and perhaps keyboard support will come.
