-------

(This issue introduces two new departments (here promoted as new features) - Crash and Boom (comic strip) and Fandango (fanzine reviews). The recurring Computer Strategies feature is moved (with some permanence) into the Reviews section of the contents, for whatever reason. California Raisins is reviewed for NES, a game famous for never having been released in the states. Destination Arcadia is absent this issue, although some arcade tips appear in the Easter Egg department.)
