  • Games Versus Reality
    What's so great about the real world, anyway? We see how it fares against the Amiga -- scientifically.

    Catch the trend that's sweeping the country like a giant, friendly tidal wave. SUBSCRIBE to AMIGA POWER and lots of good things will happen to you. You'll get groovy free things like a coveted AMIGA POWER 0. Man.

    Bearing in mind the dodgy state of Britains real theme parks, we'd say this one's here just at the right time

Disk 42:

The more numerically astute of you will have noticed that there's a 50% increase in the number of disks this month. That's 50% more plastics, ferrous oxides, and metals used in the production of this mag. So next time you stare up at the hole in the ozone, think AMIGA POWER.

  • Theme Park
    We may have review the A1200 version of Bullfrog's astonishing new sim game, but we're caring and thoughtful enough to present you with the A500 version. There's enough Chickenmen, ice cream shops, bouncy castles, and everything else to set up your very own tiny theme park. Just add screaming kids and the smell of vomit for added realism.
  • Tower Assault
    Absolutely everyone must have bought Alien Breed by now, even people without Amigas. So it's just as well Team 17 have produced this fab demo of the sequel.
  • Ruff 'n' Tumble
    Conclusive proof that children and firearms DO mix. Move over Mothercare, Renegade are in charge now. Oh yes.
  • Bubble and Squeak
    A1200 only antics with a small boy and his friend, a large blue, um, thingummy-bob.
