COVER (Contents page excerpt)

They're the talk of the nation, and now Acclaim is bringing the Simpsons to the NES in Bart Simpson Vs. the Space Mutants. Turn to page 38 for a sneak peek. Cover Art: Matt Groening


This issue of VG&CE is light on portable gaming coverage, with Gaming On The Go absent. No TG16 reviews, either. Arcade fans should be happy, though, with the museum and AMOA Show in the spotlight.
