General

Speccy 128 released at £179.95 and reviewed - and is found to be less than 100% backwards compatible.
    Modem House sells the BTX 5000 Modem - a 1200/75 modem for £29.95.
    Arcade Dream April Fool fools rather a lot of people - including one rival magazine...
    Art Studio feature.
    The legendary YS badge is introduced!
    Domark's Dominic Wheatley and Mark Strachan offers sincere apologies for the images used in the packaging and publicity material for new release Friday The 13th. Featuring a combination of severed heads, meat cleavers and various amounts of blood, lots of people sent in complaints.
    After being written, scapped, rewritten and scrapped again, Elite says that Scooby Doo is back on the release schedule.
