A New Mini

I'm hardly what you would call a 'retro gamer', but I have been reliving part of my childhood the past couple of years.

First, I bought a Nintendo Classic Mini consoles in 2016. I followed this up a later by purchasing a Super NES Classic Mini.

I now have another 'mini' on my list.

C64 Mini

The C64 Mini is a device that contains a handful of games that were once available on the Commodore 64.

I owned a Commodore 64 in the 1980's, so - as soon as I saw this item on the Game website the other day - I was immediately intrigued.

There are quite a few games listed for it. To be honest, I either forgot most of them, or haven't heard of them before. There are, however, titles that I did play/own in the past. They are:

California Games (one of my favorites!)
Impossible Mission
Impossible Mission II
Monty Mole
Monty on the Run
Pitstop II
Skate Crazy
Street Sports Baseball
Summer Games II
Who Dares Wins II
Winter Games
World Games

There are games I would have liked to have played again that didn't make the cut. I guess this is due to licensing issues, so I understand. With that said, and as I mentioned in the list, California Games is one of my favourites. That alone is worth part of the purchase price.

In my opinion, of course.

As of the time of writing, the product is listed as on 'preorder' with a price of £64.99. I'm unsure of a release date.
