5 New Games Prove the Commodore 64 is Not Dead

The Commodore 64 was officially released in 1982, actually turning 33 years old just last month, and still has new games coming out for it.  Talk about dependable.  Even Commodore themselves kept the computer alive for nearly 12 years before calling in the horses on this one.  That is quite a long time for a […]


Super Mario 64 to Get New Level Pack from Homebrew Developers

Super Mario 64 was a seminal release, it was one of the last times that a console and a launch title sold 1:1 at launch, and it was an instant classic.  Sure, there were problems with Super Mario 64 but fans were too enamored with the quality of the overall package to be nitpicking little […]


Take Your Commodore 64 On-Line with Upcoming Wi-Fi Cartridge

The Commodore 64 featured a lifespan that was somewhat unique, especially considering how popular it was (and remains to be).  Particularly, it missed the Internet (as we know it) and it missed “affordable” Wi-Fi options that we enjoy today.  Those things have not stopped independent developers from creating a Wi-Fi cartridge for the little Commodore […]


1983 Game, Labyrinth of Crete, Fixed by Fans in 2015

When you discuss game hacks most people will think of that one time that they played a hack of Super Mario Bros that had Sonic instead of Mario.  Or they will think of gamers playing illegally obtained copies on a ton of different hardware (Nintendo games on Sony – which almost happened – for instance).  […]


Five Commodore 64 Homebrew Games That Rock

The Commodore 64 was a gaming computer from the 80’s that just wouldn’t quit.  Initially not intended to be a gaming computer, the fans simply made it one through the openness it offered.  Commodore was not one to shy away from this series of events, though they did continue on their original plan for it […]

Commodore 65 Prototype Retro Hardware

Work on FPGA based Commodore 65 Continues, Early 2016 Release on Schedule

The Commodore 65 was to be a major hardware upgrade to the venerable Commodore 64.  Scheduled to be called the C64DX/C65 and set for an early 90’s launch, Commodore pulled the plug rather abruptly and shelved the unit due to unforeseen rising manufacturing costs and probably due to their own success.  During the period that […]


Legend of Zelda 3rd Quest Being Developed by Fans

Ah, the classic Nintendo 64 Zelda games were quite interesting, they were the first foray into the 3D realm for the franchise and for many, they were system sellers.  Fans showed enough support for these two 64-Bit games that Nintendo re-released them on the Gamecube (and later the Virtual Console).  Now a group of fans […]

Commodore 65 Prototype Retro Hardware

Prototype – Commodore 65 Found and Now on Auction Block

Ah, Commodore, the company that brought us such great and venerable computers like the 64/128 and the Amiga.  These computers really defined computer gaming in the 80’s for a lot of fans that preferred keyboards to joysticks (though both were offered).  As most computer users of the old days know, there were attachments for these […]

Grubz Singular Crew Commodore 64 homebrew retro retrogaming game (1)

New Game: Grubz Brings Worms Style Mayhem to the Commodore 64

The Commodore line of computers (Amiga and 64) are quite prolific with the homebrew community- the fans just won’t let these platforms die.  Grubz is one such new homebrew title that fans of Worms will want to keep an eye on.  Grubz will be released by Protovision (what movie used that same name for a […]


Battletanx Blows Up The Nintendo 64: Today in History- December 31st, 1998

Battletanx on the Nintendo 64 may not have set sales records, it certainly did open, even if ever so briefly, a new genre of gaming that few companies jumped in on (Sega did with Alien Front Online which was “similar”).  The year is 2001, a virus has wiped out the feminine side of the human […]
