Well, its been years in the making, but finally the MegaCart has arrived, and mine has just arrived yesterday!
What is a MegaCart?… Well, it is a brand new cartridge produced in 2009 for the Vic 20, the C64’s older brother. Overall it contains every single cartridge game ever released for the machine all on one cartridge, along with a selection of disk/tape games, utilities and hidden extras.
Everything is very well produced, as well as some very neat packaging, you get cartridge acting as a tribute to the classic Vic 20 carts of yesterday (Now complete with an Action Replay style reset switch).
Plugging in for the first time, you are presented with an excellent menu system with plenty of shortcut keys and boot features. You can select from a range of impressive tunes to play (and mute when you’ve had enough), add games to a favourites list and pick a random game from the impressive library.
Additionally the cartridge helps to provide the one-stop solution by providing RAM expansion boot options, and a touch of Action Replayness with the addition of the excellent EasyLoad+.
Although I still really need to sit down and enjoy my new purchase, overall this was an excellent purchase to dig out my Vic 20 again and fire up some old memories.
