cover tape
Average tape: Tempest (Activision, 7, March 1987), Star Raiders II (Activision, 8, June 1987), Southern Belle (Hewson, unrated), Kraal (Hewson, unrated), Super Cup Football (Hewson, unrated), Riptoff (Rick O'Neill, YS), plus the regular POKEs program.
    Another sign of the 8-bit market's decline - US Gold announce they're putting the Amstrad and Spectrum versions of all future games on the same tape...
    Freescape game maker 3D Construction Kit gets released at £25...
    Yet another sign of the fall of the games scene is that YS now gives original budget games the same coverage as full price games, which wasn't a bad idea as only three full price games were reviewed this month...
    Vox Pop feature.
    The Messenger - a SAM to Spectrum tape interface - gets released.
    Mike Gerrard's brilliant Adventure column gets cut to two pages...
    £3.99 budget games start to pop up...
    System 3 announce The Last Ninja III. Unfortunately, as with many other announced games at this time, it never actually got released on the Spectrum.
