The Addams Family

Yakky! Ikky! Sticky! Wacky! Er, that is how the movie catchphrase goes, isn't it?! Ne'er mnd, scope the wondrous game...

Regulars

WIN AN F-14 TOM CAT!

A model one, of course, as US Gold celebrate the launch (literally!) of the most stomach-churning Speccy game ever!

HAPPENINGS

Blimey! CRASH had a close escape with its last writer! You just can't get the staff these days...

PREVIEWS

Not even the CRASH crew can foresee the future, but here we give you six pages of the next best thing!

LUCY'S LETTERS

She's mad, bad and totally rad, wacky, scmacky and... Oh haemorrhoids, here's Lucy anyway (mutter, mumble, gripe).

SAM PAGES

Yes! TWO pages for the SAM this month - and they're not splattered with green-tinted piccies, either! (Wonders never cease!)

FEATURE

The Euro Games! Nope, it's not a new multi-national sports competition, it's the fantastic Spectrum games that have never seen the light of day over here. Will 1992 change all that?

DJ NICKO'S TIPS SPESH

Guess how any pages, readers... 16 (swoon!) - yes, 16!! Nick's burnt the midnight oil to bring you this bumper bonanza of maps, tips and solutions, which even includes a SAM-specific section!

ADVENTURE TRAIL

Coo lumme! Everything's bigger this month (nor'arf!) THREE pages of adventures! We're just too kind to you, we really are.

OLI FREY POSTER

GO TO THE ZOO!

Win a copy of Alternative's Bangers and Mash then go and see wild animals in the flesh (or should that be the fur?) - come and see the CRASH crew! Er, on second thoughts, visit Windsor Safari Park!

TECHNI-TAK

Just how do those strange little freeze catridges, multifaces, reset switches and the like work? We haven't got the foggiest, but we know a man who does.

BACKPAGE

It's a page! It's at the back! It's (gasp!) BackPage, to tell you what's goin' down (man) next ish!

RoboCop 3

Robocop 3

He's back to protect the implement! RoboProp! Better make that RoboCop, everyone's fave tin soldier, serving the public trust!

April trip to Games City, Groovecentral...
