Prize number 5 – we have a winner!

I’m pleased to announce the winner of the 5th prize in our ‘12 Days of Christmas‘ competition.

The winner of the Commodore 64 emulator for Pocket PC from ClickGamer is Paul Swain.

ClickGamer

Paul correctly answered the question we posed: The number of C64 units sold from 1982 to 1993 was 30 million. You can find the answer on page 33 of the C64 emulator manual. This is going by the figure published in the 2002 Guiness Book of Records.

There will be another prize to win later on today!
