We've scoured the length and breadth of the county to bring you early shots of Dominion, Wacky Races, Dirt Track Racer, Stack Up and England Championship Special! Well, actually the Post Office did all the fetching and carrying (a bit tortoise-like, weren't you?).


Lumme! A Sega Master System console must be won! So must a copy of US Gold's Sega Gauntlet! And, don't forget, 20 copies of Gauntlet on the Speccy!


Heeeeeeeeere's Lloyd (and Enor) with another pot-pourri of postal missives! Plus see the winning entry of our Jetman compo in this month's strip! And all the news, Hi-Firers and Bug Box snorties! Hurrah!


A sound sampler! A MIDI-type arrangement! A Nick Roberts Demo Disk! Golly, it's all happening on the Coupé front this month, isn't it?


Don't let yourself be beaten to a pulp - tackle the toughest in games with more tips, tricks and tactics from the DJ who actualy hasn't done a gig for about six months (the clot!).


Take the money! No. open the box! Yes, indeed open the box and discover a wealth of smash hot games now appearing in compilation form!


Ooow, dear! Most of the game prices have gone up (thanks, Norman) so we're going to be a little tougher on the marking. So there. Games out this month include: MERCS, Shadow Dancer and RBI 2!
