My Ultimate64 Experience V – Checking Out 3 New Homebrew Titles (Donkey Kong, Killerbees, Digiloi)
#Ultimate64 #Commodore64 #FPGA
The Ultimate 64, an FPGA Commodore 64 re-implementation created by Gideon Zweijtzer. Which results in a brand new C64 that doesn’t need to use any of the old parts… well a keyboard still is needed but I’ve heard about new replacement mechanical keyboards being built for the C64. And if you use SID chips you can severely augment the audio experience. I put in two from two deceased C64s that had severe damage to the motherboard that rendered them un-salvageable.
The homebrew games I check out in this video are:
Donkey Kong Arcade,
Killerbees Videopac Port,
Digiloi PetAscii game
People have had issues running the DonkeyKong Arcade game but I reckon the newer Ultimate64 firmware takes care of that. It made a ton of stable illegal opcodes available for the system which might have attributed to this game running now.
Killerbees is a game that is originally found on the Videopac / Odyssey 2 console but it has been ported to the C64 with a twist, or a slant…? Cool game!
Digiloi is a very cool run and gun type of game where the whole gamescreen has been created using coloured ASCII characters (including the special Commodore ones).

Elgato HD60S USB3.0 external capture card
Suzo Arcade joysticks (hence the clicky sounds in the background)
Thanks for watching.
