RMCretro Charity Calendar:

The Commodore 64 was a hit in the UK and cheap, pocket money priced games on cassette tape (and perhaps some piracy) allowed us to build a healthy games library. But what if we could use a compact disc to put many games on one disc instead of filling our drawers with tapes? Enter, the Rainbow Arts 1st CD Edition. A rare collectors item and perhaps the first ever example of commercially released games on an 8bit micro computer (not a console) on CD. Lets try it out!
