Notable Stuff:

  • Tips & Tricks loves to put Mortal Kombat II on their covers, don't they? And why not; Mortal Kombat sold mags like mad back in the day.
  • Speaking of the cover, how about those four free tips right there on the front of the magazine? Nice to see codes and goodies not buried in the pages of a magazine for once.
  • The strategy pages for General Chaos are printed sideways for some reason.
  • According to Joe Sislow of Jaleco, Warren Robinett (designer of Adventure on the 2600) researches VR at UNC Chapel Hill! How cool!
  • This issue breaks Sonic CD wide open, with every strategy and cheat code you could possibly want for one of the best games on the Sega CD system.
  • That Double Switch walkthrough is the most comprehensive you'll find outside of GameFAQs.
  • The Game Boy version of Mortal Kombat is the only home translation that let you play as Goro, as the Game Boy Tips section described in this issue.
