Artwork for Zapped to the Past

Zapped to the Past


The Commodore 64 had lots of games. Not all of them are good. In Zapped to the Past, we cast a retrospective eye over those games reviewed in each issue of Zzap!64 magazine. Hosted by two lifelong C64 fans, we throw off those rose tinted specs and see if those games are still worth playing today.

  • Unfortunately our best

    In an ideal world, these two trashing games which require either imagination, reading or (God forbid!) a manual, or which don’t fit the narrow range of games they breathlessly remind the listener they encourage their students to create, would just be the middle of the pack of Commodore 64 podcast media. But for production value, variety (despite skipping so many games which require reading!), and consistency, they’re the best of a shallow pool. Hope you like scatological references!

  • Great show!

    Finally a reason to love Mondays: another episode of this lovely podcast! It features great, in-depth reviews of the awesome and sometimes horrible games of the Commodore 64. Also, good fun with looks at the music charts and film releases of the mid to late 80s. Highly recommended

  • Zapped to the Past is a blast

    In a short space of time, Zapped to the Past has become one of my very favourites shows. Released on Mondays, this two hander featuring a couple of old school buddies is a great way to start the week. The title of the show refers to Zzap!64, a monthly mag first published in 1985 that took an irreverent look at the latest releases on the Commodore 64. Each issue is split into two podcasts, with our trusty hosts taking a fresh and equally irreverent look at most if not all of the games reviewed. W... more
