 AlomWare 64 v1.00 released 13:42
Announcing: AlomWare 64 v1.00

Rated 4.5 / 5 at


The best-selling computer of all time comes alive again on your PC! Lovingly made for all C64 fans, AlomWare 64 is the best C64 wallpaper for Windows, showing real PC statistics on your desktop background as a fictional BASIC program. No longer settle with a boring static image of the C64 boot screen: our unique live wallpaper lets you "POKE" the colors to whatever you like, or even "randomize" them with one click. If you don’t like what you see, reset them back to default with the "SYS 64738" function!

Custom colors are just the beginning: there’s simulated cartridge support where you can "insert" carts such as "Simons’ Basic" to experience their color schemes and boot text, and switching between upper and lower case text modes is also possible. There’s even an SX-64 mode! If you don’t care about PC statistics, you can instead choose a "PRINT" loop for the text, or the famous "CHR$(205.5)+RND(1)" maze, Matrix-style number columns, or a night sky with a hidden "star". Yes, AlomWare 64 is the world’s first C64 wallpaper with a game!
