Funnily enough i've been revisiting the vic-20. We can certainly sort something out. I think we've done a minority report. So maybe vic 20 games that were better than c64 versions.

I don't believe we have done a VIC-20 MR, just Commodore 16.

Oddly enough I mentioned a Minority Report for the Vic20 in the OTHER Vic20 thread :lol:

I certainly am able to put one together if the fans request it, I think I've played more Vic20 games than anyone else on the planet :lol:

I remember when I got Arcadia on my C64, I was very disappointed that is wasn't as good as the Vic 20 version I'd been playing up to then. I can't think of any others that were better, though that might be some.

One game that's possibly unique (or rare), if uniqueness is something worth mentioning in a feature, is Mower Mania. It has a loading picture and tune. I was really surprised when I loaded that for the first time.
