SAM PAGE

Amazing! Two more games coming for the SAM Coupé and they're absolute corkers! Nicko reveals all and gives an update on the SAM Sampler situation!

DJ NICKO'S TIPS

A Slightly Magic map created by DJ Nicko (well, he snapshotted all 500-odd screens which then were left on disk in the art dept for three weeks while everyone shirked responsibility for putting the thing together!). Plus all the hints, tricks and tactics to beat the toughest games around!

EXCELLENT CITY

It's the place where all the ace games live! CRASH took its first monthly trip there (and didn't we have a lovely time?)

Indeed, win a football - but not any old football! Win one that's been signed by the entire England soccer squad! It's a prize and a half! The other half being copies of England Championship Special!

WIN LOTS OF TURRI-KIT!

Make a map of this month's Turrican 2 demo and get it printed and win yourself a stack of goodies, including the original Turrican demo from Rainbow Arts!
