Shared December 22, 2019
We take a deep look at the new TheC64 full-size: how is it for programming in BASIC and assembly language, how does the keyboard and case compare to a real C64, and how is that new joystick for playing games? We'll also look at a couple workarounds and hacks, and deal with some of the (minor) controversies about the product. Also, we look at the new Christmas-themed shoot-em'up, Santron, by Sarah Jane Avory. And Santa himself makes a strange appearance at the very end.
