A special feature of C64 Studio is the debugging function with the remote monitor of VICE (step in, step over, step out). Also shown are register and memory contents.

The assembler syntax used in C64 Studio is similar to the standard configuration of ACME. The assembler also supports other syntaxes (PDS, DASM, etc.).
