Many users who are over 40 years old will surely remember with excitement the Commodore VIC-20, a console released in 1981, marking an 8-bit milestone and competing with Atari.
For this reason, and for that nostalgic public, Retro Games Ltd. and Koch Media have announced the return to stores of this computer with THEVIC20.
This most modern replica of the Commodore computer will come with its full size, with its own work keyboard, an updated micro-switched classic joystick that connects through one of the four USB ports of the equipment that we can connect to any television through its HDMI output.
But in addition, THEVIC20 comes with three switchable modes, the possibility of starting with the original programs VIC-20 BASIC and C64 BASIC or, if we prefer, turning it on with multiple games that will allow us to enjoy the 64 titles that will come pre-installed in 50 Hz or 60 Hz along with optional filter / CRT display modes.
“We are excited to work with Koch Media once again to move even a few more beloved retro games ever to two of the all-time home computers combined in this latest incarnation of the THEC64 range, this time with a full keyboard of work and classic VIC-20 style, ”said Paul Andrews, Managing Director of Retro Games, on the October 23 release.
Some of the 64 titles that we will find here are:
- Laser zone (VIC-20)
- California Games
- Boulder Dash (C64)
- Metagalactic Flames
- Subspace Striker
- Mega vault
- and the newly released shoot ’em up Galencia (C64)
- and the classic text adventure Planet of death (C64).
