Wow – talk about a nostalgia flashback – Play your favorite C64 games right in your browser!
This site (www.c64s.com) uses a Java emulator to let you play dozens of the good-ole Commodore 64 games right in your browser. There have been downloadable C64 emulators for ages, but this site saves you the hassle of finding the disk dumps for some of your favorite games.
I fired-up a round of Commando (which I used to play with the classic Atari 2600 controller until my thumb cramped from the red fire button) and it worked great — choppy sound, blinking overloaded sprites, and all the fun that I remember. There is a “Top List” which dynamically changes to show the top user choices for games, which makes for a quick diversion when you need to waste a few minutes.
If you are nostalgic about the old Commodore days, this site will give your memories a good jog!
