Commodore 16

Did anyone have a Commodore 16 computer back in the day? If so what games did you have?

Re: Commodore 16

I've only heard of Commodore Vic 20 and 64, was blessed with an Acorn Electron.

Re: Commodore 16

I moved up to the Amiga 500+ with a full 1meg of RAM, and connected it to my 14" Sony Trinitron TV.

I had my BBC connected to a Trinitron for many years (and an Apple II before that).

This seemed to be the top computer of the period, both for gaming and programming.

The Commodore 16 never really took off in the UK but it did have a version of Football Manger.

Erm ...... i dont think so. the bbc micro was light years ahead of the ZX81 in tems of programming and the number of games available for it. zx81 came with 1k of ram unless you paid for 16k expansion. crappy thermal printer as well. z80 sinclair BASIC was a poor substitute for the procedural BBC BASIC. then again the bbc micro was x4 the price.
