This is a list of Commodore 64-related web sites. All of them get my seal of approval, but if you don't go anywhere else you should check out Lemon64. It has reviews, cover scans, a lively and friendly forum, an FAQ, a Commodore museum, game tournaments, and huge number of useful links. It has some games for download, but sites such as are more comprehensive; or you can try the search engines below. If you'd like me to add your site to this list, send me the url and I'll check it out. You can email me here:email me
