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.

Another Tetris clone squares up (geddit?) to the hoardes of contenders on the C64.

Bork, bork, bork! An interesting new use for the Swedish language and indeed for belching!
