The Christmas edition of Commodore Free focuses on the short lived Commodore 64GS (basically a C64 minus the keyboard/tape drive). This includes a look at the machine itself as well as reviews of the four games that were bundled with it, including Fiendish Freddy’s Big Top O’ Fun, Flimbo’s Quest, Klax and International Soccer. Also notewrothy within the feature is a screen grab of one boxed C64GS going for a pretty penny.
It’s not all C64GS, though, as elsewhere there is a review of Slide, a new homebrew puzzler game for the C64, a review of The Golden Age of Video Games book by Roberto Dillon, the usual up to date news on all things Commodore (FCUG Meeting update, Commodore OS Vision, Beret 2D puzzle game, The Last VIC game…) and more.
Commodore Free issue 57 is freely available to download from the CF homepage and comes in multiple reading formats, including PDF, text, html, seq, D64 (C64 disk image) and eBook (ePUB and MOBI).
