Name Description
C64S This was one of the first Commodore 64 Emulators. It is coded bySeattle Labs, and is a commercial emulator that costs $69.95. However, there are other emulatorsjust as good, if not better, that are free.
CCS64 This is one of the best C64 emulators. It is a very fast emulator,and supports almost everything an actual Commodore 64 would support. To get all the features,you have to register this emulator, however, such as cartridge support and wave output.
CCS64 is shareware and registration is US$30. It's worth the cash.
Come Back 64 This is one of the newest Commodore 64 emulators around. It is coded in C++, and the sourcecode is freelydistributable and is included in the binary. It features sound, is very compatible with most programs and games, and isupdated rather frequently. It's worth a download, especially to check out the source.
Dream64 Dream64 is totally free, and developped just for fun. It can run most commercial games and a lot of tricky demos, by the way it is not yet as compatible as great emulators like Hoxs64 or CCS64.
Emu64 Commodore 64 emulator from Germany!
Free64 This emulator by Butcha is written in C, and is freeware. It emulatessound through the PC speaker, and although it doesn't support as much as other C64 emulators,such as CCS64, it may become more compatible and better in the future.
Frodo This C64 emulator has been ported to Unix, MacOS, BeOS, AmigaOS, RiscOS, and now Windows. This emulates the Commodore 64 very well, and is being updatedall the time. Definitly an emulator to download for the hardcore C64 fan.
Hyper64 Hyper64 is a working proof-of-concept of an experimental C64 emulator implementation without resorting to a conventional CPU emulation, but instead utilizing a realtime dynamic recompilation engine – which disassembles, analyzes and re-assembles the 6510 machine code as native 32-bit x86 code. It further uses a fast translation code cache.
JSwing C64 This is a Windows variant of JME C64.

VICE-WinVICE VICE is a program that runs on a Unix, MS-DOS, Win32, OS/2, BeOS, QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x, Amiga, Syllable or Mac OS X machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit computers. The current version emulates the C64, the C64DTV, the C128, the VIC20, practically all PET models, the PLUS4 and the CBM-II (aka C610/C510). An extra emulator is provided for C64 expanded with the CMD SuperCPU.

We have a few classic versions hosted here, but we recommend you grab the latest version from their website.
Win64 This is one of the few Commodore 64 emulators for Windows. It was originally developed due to the author's reaction when he saw a C64 emulator being sold for a high price, and he decided he could make one for free that would serve his purposes. Unfortunately,his mind has since changed, and the complete version now costs money. It has sound, speed,as well as a high compatibility rate.
