To surf the wave of retrogaming, a manufacturer had the idea to stand out the Commodore 64 in mini version accompanied by about sixty games.
The Nes Classic Mini and Super Nintendo Classic Mini have proved it: the fashion is in vintage and small formats. Designed in 1982, Commodore 64 was the first personal computer to sell millions of copies. So a legend. Well, thirty-six years later, it will come back in mini version.
THEC64 Mini is a perfect replica of the 1980s machine but in a size reduced by half. The device plugs directly into a TV in HDMI, comes with a joystick to connect to one of two available USB ports. Above all, he embarks 64 games among which great classics of the time like Paradroid, Impossible Mission or Insects In Space. From shooting games to sports simulations and puzzle games, there's something for everyone, even if we miss some cult titles like Jumpman, Lode Runner or the crazy Attack of the Mutant Camels. THEC64 Mini will also have a part saving function.
Koch Media, which will offer THEC64 Mini in France at the beginning of 2018 at the price of 79.99 euros, adds that as it is a real computer, it will be possible to connect a USB keyboard and use it to develop new games or to program in BASIC. This will prolong the pleasure of nostalgia a little more.
