An NEC PC-6001 Special

It's twenty-three times the fun today with this NEC PC-6001 Blog Squirrel special spectacular! Marvel at yet another computer which time has tossed aside (though in this case, there's probably a good reason for it).

When Super Mario Bros. Special got into the mainstream press a couple of years ago, many websites started to acknowledge the NEC PC-8801's existence. But that's by no means the only Japanese computer of the early 1980s - there are many, many more, each with their own strange stories and questionable ports of Xevious to share, and the PC-6001 is one of them. I'm low on information regarding the machine, but it's a start.

Though I still haven't found that Donkey Kong clone with robots.
