page is dedicated to the Commodore and its great video games. The
Commodore 64 was extremely popular in the 80s, and you'll find a
selection of videos to watch, featuring clips of both C64 and Amiga
video games. How many of these did you play?
The video clip at the top of the page features today's kids playing on a C64. It's really interesting to watch and note how the blue screen joke fell flat!
Starting with Barbarian II, this is a quick trip through 100 C64 computer games. They're not necessarily the best ones, but I hope you will remember playing a few of these, at least. It's also nice to see Arkanoid in there which I used to play quite a lot. It's a shame the uploader hasn't added titles of each game to the video, but see how many you can name!
International Karate by System 3 was available for a wide-range of machines, but the 8-bit C64 and Atari XL/XE versions were particularly good and featured music by the legendary Rob Hubbard.
Starting with the Secret Of Monkey Island, this video features 100 Amiga games - how many of these did you play?

Released in 1991 by Factor 5 and developed by Rainbow Arts, the Amiga version of Turrican II was completed before the C64 version. The games was also ported to the Atari ST, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and PC MS-DOS.
Released in 1990, the Amiga version of Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge was the most advanced of all the version released. The game was very well-received by critics on all the 8-bit and 16-bit platforms.
This clip features the intro music to the game Chuck Rock on the Amiga 500. With its cartoon-style graphics, this amusing, side-scrolling game was set in the prehistoric stone age, and was released by Core Design in 1991 for the Atari ST and Amiga, and in 1992 for the C64.
For those of you who never made it to the end of the Ghostbusters game, here's a treat - it's the ending!
