40+ Multi-Game ‘Penultimate Cartridge’ Now Available For Commodore VIC-20

Penultimate-Cartridge-for-VIC-20-Now-AvailableIf you prefer to get your retro gaming fix via the vintage computers on offer then look no further. Tynemouth Software have teamed up with leading classic hardware manufacturer TheFutureWas8Bit to release an all-in-one game cartridge for the Commodore VIC-20.

Although this fantastic system is often overshadowed by its 64k successor, the VIC-20 still has plenty to offer when it comes to gaming - with the likes of Jelly Monsters, Demon Attack, and even a port of Donkey Kong showcasing the computer’s potential.

These three titles are just a few on the ones available on the Penultimate Cartridge for the VIC-20, with many more pre-loaded and ready to boot into action. This new addition for the Commodore computer also doubles up as a memory expander with several selectable RAM configurations just a key press away. Elsewhere the other great feature included is an easy access button to load other software from TheFutureWas8Bit’s SD2IEC device (a disk drive emulator for the older Commodore computers).

Needless to say this is a fantastic addition to any VIC-20 gamer’s collection, and one that’s fairly priced at £64.99 with pre-orders now open.

Just a correction but the VIC-20 wasn't a British computer; Commodore was an American company. ;-)

Cauterize was half-right ... just left out the "Columbia" from British Columbia.

Commodore was a Canadian company :lol:
