Re: Jeff Minter's Minotaur Rescue (iOS)

I've just bought the game this morning and it's terrible. The controls are probably the worst on the iPhone. The concept of the game doesn't seem to bad but it gets a big thumbs down.

Re: Commodore C16 released after 12 years inprisonment

£50 is a fair price these days, once you manage to find one that doesn't have a bad TED or CPU. Shinobi's correct, these dealers who cannot confirm the unit is working should be banned, after all it only costs a £1 for a cable. Alot of the machines on sale at eBay have either a bad TED or CPU these ...

New C16/Plus 4 Game - Adventures in Time

Hi guys, Looks like you've missed this one. Released just a few days ago, a brilliant new platformer for the C16/Plus 4. Many thanks to KiTCHY & Luca. Definitely worthy of a review in the Magazine. http://plus4world.powweb.com/dl/screenshots/a/adventures_in_time_title.gif http://plus4world.powweb.co...

Re: CTRL+V whatever's on your clipboard...

Erm.... The Wand is one of a range of products for the Commodore Plus4/ C16 . It allows you to convert a large number of game s from cassette to disc. Having all your software on disc is much more convenient than using many tapes. It also allows the loading of games at a much faster rate than tape w...

Re: Commodore Techy type stuff.....

Definately agree with using the video port and not the modulator, much better picture too.

The disk drive serial cable is very easy to make, or you can get them from here too

Yes that's right, you can use the C64 compatible disc drives with all of the TED machines (Plus 4, C16 & C116).

That games seems to be the holy grail when it comes to the C16/Plus 4. If I ever come across another copy, I will let you know.

Re: Wanted Commodore 16

Hi all, I'm after a C16. Good exterior condition but does not have to work. No need for a box, software, power or tape deck. Ebay prices seem quite high (around £30) so I thought I'd check on here. Anyone help me out? Ta, Pete The prices on eBay are extremely high for C16's/Plus 4's at the moment, ...
