Oldschool Gaming - reviewing new games on classic computers

Originally released in late 1982, the Commodore 64 is probably one of the best known 8-bit computers. It survived commercially until the mid 1990's and is another machine that has been pushed way past what it's designers originally intended on the graphics and sound fronts.
