The NES was pushing it but...

According to Guardian Gamesblog there will not only be NES, SNES, N64, Master system and Megadrive games available to download via "micro-transactions" but also Commodore 64 titles. This tenuous link allows me to talk about the last great game to ever come out on the C64.

Mayhem in monsterland was a platformer from Apex (The creators of Creatures) and published by Codemasters. It was a great wee game each level was split in 2 with the dark world and light world. In the dark world Mayem (the yellow dinosaur pictured above) would collect magic dust from all over the level then hand it in to a giant dinosaur who would spread it round the land making it a light and happy world.
Mayhem had two main attacks, he could jump on enemies heads (a la Mario) or do a dashing spin attack (a la Sonic), and as much as these attacks were the norm of the time the game (which many were lacking at this time) had a real sense of style and playability. Anyways check out the site, apparently there is a java version for mobiles (eugh), and fingers crossed for a Wii version...

Yeah but the Wii has a slanted stand and a cool blue light and after all thats what we want in a console!!

A really cool blue light.

Seriously though the Wii could so beat up your mum.
