Commodore 64 C64 Mini Console was produced by Retro Games Ltd. as a way to relive the fun once brought by the old-time classic games people used to play on their computers back in the eighties. The refreshed version of the Commodore 64 computer named THEC64 Mini bears a lot of similarities in terms of visual design with its original counterpart, but its main purpose is not to be a computer anymore. The iconic PC comes back and delivers entertainment as a portable console you can use to play games that were popular decades ago, allowing you to either remember the best retro titles of the past or to travel back in time to discover how the gaming industry started and developed.
Return of the Legendary Computer
Experience return of the legendary Commodore 64 in the form of a portable console you can use to play the best games from the eighties. The refreshed version of the device will immediately draw your attention with its adorable design closely resembling the original Commodore computer recreated in 1:2 scale, directly striking you with nostalgia. Though now being more of a console than PC, it’s worth mentioning that THEC64 Mini retained its computer capabilities and allows to write programs in the BASIC language, making it possible to use the console for educational purposes as well.
Rich Collection of Available Games
The console comes bundled together with a library of 64 pre-installed games ready to play, offering an amazing experience out-of-the-box. Among the carefully selected titles, you will find the ones that were extremely popular back in the eighties, giving you the unique opportunity to travel back in time and rediscover each of them on your own. The library includes Boulder Dash, Impossible Mission, Jumpman, Paradroid, Creatures, and multiple sports games, like Winter Games and California Games.
Classic Joystick Included
The console wouldn’t feel complete without its iconic arcade joystick featuring distinctive huge red action buttons. Discover the games in the exact way they were intended to be played back in the old days. Simply plug the joystick into the USB port and start your journey to the past. It will be a refreshing experience for both older and younger audience alike, either because of the nostalgia factor or because of joysticks being so rarely seen these days, as they were mostly replaced by gamepads.
CRT Display Filter
THEC64 Mini allows to use CRT display filter to further customize the experience of using the console. Using the filter you can truly feel like playing on the old classic PC connected to the CRT screen – the filter adds some blur and scanlines that were characteristic elements of the old TVs. This creates the perfect illusion of playing on the true retro device rather than just the modern recreation of the original.
USB and HDMI Ports
To better fit the modern times and to adjust the device to the rapidly growing digital technology, C64 Mini Console received two USB ports and one HDMI port. USB ones can be used to connect an external keyboard to make typing easier, a second joystick to share the joy of playing the game with a friend, or even to load firmware updates or your own programs and games through a USB memory stick. HDMI, on the other hand, is used to output high-quality and high-resolution image together with retro chiptune sound generated by the games you are running on the console.
