Route 64 is a Commodore 64 emulator. It is written in Java and should thus be highly portable. You can use it to either play around on the BASIC command line that the 64 had or to get some game images and play games again that you missed for a long time.
This emulator supports enough of the Commodore 64's features to be able to actually run more complex games. It emulates the video chip VIC, the IO and timer chips (CIAs) and finally even the sound chip.
Note that Route 64 is not perfect. It is also not a cycle-exact simulation of the Commodore 64 which is the main reason that some games found on the internet are not working. But it's getting better all the time...
