Possibly, but the thing that made Mayhem stand out was how it pushed the C64 hardware to it's limits
Yes! And that's why playing this game on VICE is utterly a waste of time! This MUST be played with CCS64, otherwise you won't see the game perform in full glory just like on the real C64.
That's one of the "test cases" Håkan Sundell likes to show to demonstrate the vast abilities of CCS64!
