CRASH 62 cover

CRASH — THE MOST UP-TO-DATE COMPUTER MAGAZINE

We’ve always said that our reviews are the most unbiased around. But what some people forget is that we’re also the most up-to-date magazine around. This month we have first screenshots of Renegade 3 and Red Heat; stop press reviews of Run The Gauntlet and Incredible Shrinking Sphere, and EXCLUSIVE news on the greatest software house, Ultimate — Play The Game. You can get cassettes any day, but CRASH is where it’s at for the latest info!

COIN-OPS COMPACT

  • The ultimate home arcade experience has been unveiled — or so Konix claim. We take the wraps off one of the most hyped pieces of hardware in the world and ask whether the Konix Multi-System really is as good as they say, and is what they say true?

  • ‘The best console available today!’ is the view of the CRASH team. With the console market really hotting up, we review NEC’s PC Engine which is now available in Britain. WARNING: please do not get too upset when you see the screenshots, thank you...
