Commodore 64 Plug n Play

Hi,
I am thinking of gettting a commodore 64 plug n play for my boyfriend for christmas, but the main reason is so he can play a game he always talks about, Flimbo's Quest. I was hoping to get a c64 plug n play and a cassette player/drive to attach to it. I've read that you can attach cassette drives and I just wanted to make sure, and if you can, can you attach it straight to the c64 plug and play or is there anything else I would need? I hope this makes sense!!

I can't find what unit you're talking about. I see a 30-in-1 device, but it doesn't have Flimbo's Quest and I see no way you could attach external devices to it. Do you have a link to what you're talking about because I might be interested in it myself.

People have hacked that TV C-64 thing, but it requires taking it apart and soldering something on to the board, if I remember correctly. There isn't just a plug on it for the old 1541 drive.

Might be cheaper and easier to get him a pet emu instead.

Thanks Groucho, lol, I might just try that!!

It's just that some web sites say "Most amazingly this unit can work like a real C64 with the ability to connect tape drives, floppy drives and even a PS2 keyboard for the real fans."

If I can't connect a tape drive, I'll probably have to buy an old C64.

Haha, I still have a working Commodore SX-64 with a crapload of games, mostly floppy copies. I need to sell that sucker on Ebay, sans the illegal stuff.
