Xenon is utterly, amazingly fab! GT thinks it's the best shoot 'em up on the Spectrum ever! (The most restrained among us think it's just utterly brilliant). It's just about the smoothest, most challenging, most addictive game you've seen in ages! We've got the exclusive review, the Blueprint, and the awesome playable demo! Check it out now!
This month we've got a total original from Andy Severn from Players. Blobocop is a multilevel, horizontal scroller with loads of action and a brilliant bonus subgame. We've also got a marvellous playable demo of Xenon, a game to get 1989 off to a cracking start. Notorious maybe. Fantastically generous certainly.
We've got a couple of really hot new games for you this month. In particular check out Stormlord which is the latest from Hewson's ace programmer Raffaele Cecco and looks like a cross between Exolon and Cybernoid. Take a look too at Obliterator, a major new shoot 'em up from Psygnosis ...
Yes it's Spectrum compatible. Yes it's got great sound. Yes it's got great graphics. Yes it's pretty cheap. Wanna read all about it?
Have you just bought a Spectrum? Maybe you've had one for years and still not been able to get it out of the box. Either way this is for you ...
You should recognise it this month. It's the January cover in all its unadorned glory. We wouldn't normally do anything so self indulgent but you told us in your hundreds you wanted it ... who are we to disappoint?
Win A Laser
No we are not kidding. Though this one is not all that dangerous since it comes from Gremlin and does cosmic things to your bedroom.
Win A Footballing Career
We'll send you for a weeks training at a major soccer school run by Bobby Charlton!
