TRICKS AND TIPS

  • Ristar (Genesis) (4 Pages)

Note: After page 3 of the Super Punch-Out guide, there are 4 pages missing from the copy of this issue of Game Players that this database entry is based on. Going by the the table of contents, what is missing, might be a strategy guide for "The Lion King". It is not clear for what system.

Reader's Network (reader mail)

-New editor Chris Slate makes note of all the crazy letters the magazine has been getting, and encourages more.

-This might be considered the start of a new era for the magazine. One in which off-beat humor, and recurring, sort of "storylines" of wackiness, begin to permeate the whole magazine.



Back Talk










-Last non-ad page of the issue. Humor, and hints of things to come in the next issue.
