PENULTIMATE CARTRIDGE - A MEGA-CART packed with features for the VIC-20
It's pretty eye opening to think that many of our first reviews were related to the accessories available to the C64, which included the UCassette, SD2IEC, C64SD V3.0 Princess and the 1541 Ultimate. In actual fact the first SD based review we did in regards to the C64 was actually sent to us by our good friends thefuturewas8bit, who is also supplying through their website this latest bit of kit the ' PENULTIMATE CARTRIDGE ' for the VIC-20!
So what is this PENULTIMATE CARTRIDGE you might ask? Well according to Dave Curran the designer and the supplier thefuturewas8bit, this is like a mega-cart. It's a menu driven cartridge for your VIC-20 and has 3-35k selectable memory expansions as well as 40+ in built roms. Also if you need more persuasion to buy, it is also fully compatible with an SD2IEC - with one key press you can boot to your SD2IEC and play the rest of your favourite roms.
As for the price, it is available for £64.99 and if you spend an extra £3.50 you'll also get the latest VIC-20 game ' Pentagorat ' which is an isometric adventure for the Commodore VIC-20!
