Source: Amiga CD32 Gamer – March 1995
The Amiga CD32 could have been an incredible console. It was released in Europe, Australia and Canada and a U.S. release was planned. However, a patent dispute combined with Commodore’s bankruptcy prevented that from happening. Given the short life-span and limited support due to the bankruptcy, the CD32 was pretty successful. Amiga CD32 Gamer was a U.K. based magazine dedicated to that system and the March 1995 issue includes:
- CD Instructions – The very fact that you’re reading this means you’re no doubt at home and are at this very moment loading up the cover CD. Why else would you be reading the contents other than to kill time? Well, you can’t play the games if you don’t know how they work, can you?
- News – What’s happening in the wide world of Amiga, video games, and beyond? Not much to be honest. It’s that lull period – after Chrimbo and before summer. Hey ho.
- Previews – They haven’t happened yet, but they’re gonna! An in depth view of some of the delectable goodies coming your way in the next few months.
- Reviews – Despite most of your average, good for nothing, Amiga press almost howling with delight at the thought of the demise of the CD32, we here at CD32 Gamer say nay! Just look at all these great reviews – what more could a CD32 owner want?
- Emerald Mines
- Mitre Soccer Superstars
- Rally Championship
- The Clue
- Subs – For a very reasonable down payment you can be assured of 12 months of up to the minute CD32 related news, views and reviews, not to mention the most comprehensive array of game demos available. Don’t be a chump – place a regular order and keep us all in a job.
- Playing Tips – Not only do we tell you which games are worth shelling out for, but we also tell you how to beat the buggers. The fruits of another hard month’s work for the Guru are here including Benefactor, Theme Park and more Jungle Strike.
- Correspondence – If you think we’re great, write in and tell us so. If you’ve got an opinion on anything related to the CD32, we’d be delighted to hear it. If you want to have a got at us about our apparent deafness when it comes to criticism, please go elsewhere!
- Mail Order – Can’t find that Gamer Gold from issue five? Trashed your joypad after getting killed on Tower Assault (again)? Here’s the place to be. Everything you could ever need to complement your CD32, and at very reasonable prices too!
- A-Z – Every CD32 release ever in a nutshell. 1,000 word reviews summed up in one sentence. If it’s good, it’s good. If it’s not, we say so in no uncertain terms. A software bible in only four pages.
