One of the oldest and best MS-DOS C64 emulators, its emulation is adequate, graphically its very good, except it does have problems with a few titles such as Mayhem in Monsterland where the screen corrupts. The sound emulation is superb. It will load most games but it does have a few drawbacks, a few titles will not run through the emulator and a few titles, like Little Computer People or Borrowed Time require the full emulation mode on which really slows down the loading process considerably. The interface is very good and is easy to use. This emulator used to compete favourably with CCS 64 but it pales in comparison now. Miha Peternel the programmer of C64s is no longer developing the software and the the full Seattle Labs commercial version is overpriced.
