I just got a C64 Mini recommend me some games to add

Recommended Posts

I just got a C64 Mini recommend me some games to add to it. I'll need to update it first but I got a 1GB Flash drive (which should fit a lot of games on it).

 

I'm mostly into shoot 'em ups (which the Mini seems to only have a few).

We've had plenty of "favorite C64 games" threads before, but currently I'm unable to locate a single of those.

 

There's always Lemon 64 Top 100, voted by its users. You can adjust "Number of votes" to get more or less obscure games in the list.

https://www.lemon64.com/games/votes_list.php

 

Besides those on the top list, I also like Delta (7.8), Salamander (8.1), perhaps Slap Fight (7.7) and Terra Cresta (7.7).

 

Use Gamebase64 or C= 8bit Search to locate those games.

 

The built-in selection is mostly due to which software houses the manufacturers could get in touch with to negotiate licenses at a reasonable cost. As you may have realized, it is heavily UK based, possibly due to the manufacturer is from the UK or perhaps that the former US companies to a greater degree have been swallowed by software giants not interested in licensing old IP.

I got some games now but many have a crack screen that I can't seem to get past (even using a keyboard).

Usually space or either of the fire buttons should get you past the cracker intro. Are you using a virtual onscreen keyboard or an USB one?

i vote for the True Blue Mini as well. saves a lot of hassle.

 

one of my favorites is Commando. when i was a kid, i'd play NTSC but these days i'd run it in PAL.

True Blue Mini USB stick has 480 games on it.  They also make USB sticks for the Playstatoin Classic Mini.

When my THEVIC20 comes out, I am grabbing one of these right away.  I hope they make one with Vic20 games too.

Galencia is a superb shooter for the C64.  It's only a $4.99 at itchio.  It's seriously incredible.  Sam's Journey is also an unbelievable platformer.

Aviator Arcade II is also great fun.

Galencia comes with the system update.
