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.

Commodore 64 Reviews
Slarti And Stash Space Saga

A long-winded title, but is Slarti And Stash a refreshing breeze or carrying a foul odour?

The spork... not just a multi-purpose eating utensil but a deadly weapon to boot!
