Wasteland on the Commodore 64

Wasteland, Commodore 64

Wasteland is a sprawling Role-Playing Game that could be said to be a prototype of a Fallout game, as it carries many of the traits seen in those type of games.

It was originally released on the Apple II in 1986, then later converted to the Commodore 64 and PC MS-DOS in 1988. Windows, Mac OS X and Linux versions followed later.

Wasteland is a difficult game to get up and running on the Commodore 64 as you have to make your own play disks before starting, and there are so many bugs and exploits in the game that it is easy to make a mistake. But it is worth the hassle because the C64 version has the best graphics and gameplay of all the versions, in my opinion.

Getting a foothold in the game is difficult, and using a walkthrough may be prudent, but perseverance reaps its rewards because Wasteland is full of surprises.

If you’re careful and know what you’re doing, Wasteland opens up to become a fascinating post apocalyptic role-playing game that is well worth playing and experiencing, even now.
