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
Redrunner

Welcome to the Redrunner... find a joystick and blow several shades of poo out of stuff!

Shaolin

The origin of the Shaolin Temple date back to 497 A.D. - does this game do them justice?

 Mark & Mickael added 29/01/2004  score 7 
Slarti And Stash Space Saga

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

 Jason & Jeff added 11/03/2006  score 1 
Spork 64

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

The further adventures of the Toclafane... erm, Stash as he tries to take over the planet..
