TRIVIA

The Commodore 16 (or C16 for short) was designed to replace the Commodore VIC-20, but was not compatible with it, nor with the C64. It had the same characteristics as the Commodore Plus/4: same graphic resolution, same sound system, same CPU and speed, just less memory. It has a powerful basic language (contrary to the VIC-20 or the C64) which makes graphics and sounds easy to program. The C16, like the Commodore Plus/4, was a commercial failure.
