The C64 Mini is a killer little retro console that does a fine job of bringing the magic of the Commodore 64 into the modern age. All you have to do is plug it into your TV and you are whisked away to the 80's when pixels were king and just about any idea could be made into a game.
If you read our review of the C64 Mini but you are still sitting on the fence, perhaps a list of all the awesome and sometimes bizarre games you can play on it will help you decide whether or not the console is for you.

That is a whole boatload of games to get you started on your retro Commodore journey. However, the great news that if you see some of your favorite titles missing from this list, the developers of the C64 built in a method for you to load your own ROMs. For only $80 you can start your journey back in time to the days of the Commodore 64!
What games do you think are missing from this list?
Let us know some of your favorites below!
No "How To Be A Complete Bastárd"? I'm out!
Would like to see some of the Cinemaware games come back - Defender of the Crown, The Three Stooges, Rocket Ranger
After a recent firmware update, they have made it really easy to add your own games. We have an article on how to do that coming shortly.
What No "Miner 2049'er" or "Jumpman Jr." or "Choplifter" no sale
Jumpman Jr. or Jumpman 2 is included and is prob. the best game on there.
I want Dino Eggs, so I loaded it from a USB flash drive.
I played the heck out of Telenguard
Need a mini Sega master system or a turbo grafx-16.
Hard seconded on both! Especially TG16! Funny enough, in a case of absolutely amazing timing, am actually listening to TG16 music as I write this! I'm going to have a TG16 focus on my VGM pod in 2019, and am currently "quality checking" the music block.....for, like, the 10th time! What can I say, I love the music! :-D
I was hoping for Zorro. Loved that game. I'll probably still buy one of these, though.
Looks like a nice collection! I'll try to spring for it!.... .....so, does it emulate the 6581 or the 8580? ;-)
The Way of the Exploding Fist
I would pay $80 if it just ran M.U.L.E. I also wish it had BRUCE LEE.
There isn't a yawn emoji large enough to express my lack of excitement for this.
I would love to see Beach Head come back on this throw back to my C64. 😍
Loved the classics like Boulder Dash and Summer Games. Woulda liked to of seen some of the old RPGs like Ultima, Phantasy, Below The Root. And the 'top notch' gfx like Wild West...lol The list brings back the memories...at 13 I was running my own 'Gaming' BBS at a staggering 300 baud...went all 'leet when I got a 1671 1200 baud modem...lmao That's 1.2kbps...and u think 56k is slow? Might of been slow af...but we were 'online' with forums and trading *cough* copies of games waaay b4 there was an internet. ...and yes, I'm old af...lol
btw...Beach Head I & II, Who Dares Wins 2 rocked the 8bit world too...
My terminal software let me change the baud rate of my modem on the fly. Depending on the BBS I was connected to, I could crank my 300 baud modem up to about 420 before it started dropping characters. That was l33t h4x0ring back in the day. 😂
I would love to see a new Atari ST or Amiga. I loved my Atari. It was the most versatile computer I ever owned. I had the Mac and PC emulators on it. I loved Dungeon Master and Stun Car Racer.
Wow, so many games that I never played, and almost none of the games I did. Archon, Dragonriders of Pern, Mail Order Monsters, Wizball, Beach Head, Raid Over Moscow, and Elite are just the favorites I remember off the top of my head.
I remember a company called Synapse, out of a little town outside of Fresno CA, (coursegold?) They made sort of knockoff games for the c64 and Atari 400/800, would love to see these again, it was the 70's, other details are fuzzy...
