Notable Stuff:

  • The reference to Psalm 9:1-2 appears on the masthead.
  • According to this month's "From the Editor...", this is the start of each issue taking on a specific theme. This issue, it's "Computers In Flight".
  • The Aliens game previewed in "Taking a Peek" is based on the James Cameron film.
  • Editors to the 221B Baker Street preview, please. "...there are 30 more [cases] on a separate case disk, available separately." *facepalm*
  • Interesting though it may sound, Hallucinations isn't a game about insanity, merely a screen pattern generator with extremely wonky graphics. The editor spices up the preview with a Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home-related joke about the programmers having "had too much LDS".
  • That's a pretty, erm, revealing ad for Defender of the Crown on page 15, don't you think?
  • On page 35, the page number is printed upside down. Why? See the letter column for issue #37.
