What's in the issue? On the coverdisk is the full game T 'n' T by Matt Round. Originally released back in 1994 this was Matt's only full commercial release and goes to show just what he was able to get out of Games Master with this multi-level Bomb Jack style game. There's also another full game on the coverdisk - Money Bags 1½, which is the third installment of the Money Bags series of games. Typical Jetset Willy style game where you have to collect objects over a large number of rooms. The game has also been updated with a brand new soundtrack by David Sanders to replace the Quazar Surround music that was originally in it when first released on Soundbyte.
Onto the paper side of the magazine. Now, who remembers Kaboom? Yes, that bomberman megagame that was never released despite orders taken. We'll over the last year or two i've been in touch with the musician and graphics artist who involved and just had to write an article about what happened to it, looking at the development work they did for the game, and when things began to fall apart and the somewhat heated aftermath! Plenty of screenshots from the near finished version of the game which make good use of the colour printing in the magazine.
There's also a new developer diary section, where i've been asking programmers for details on what they've been working on. This issue see's the diary from Johan Koelman about his work so far on a Gameboy emulator for the SAM. And there's also a large news section looking at other projects that are currently in the works, as well as news that an old ZX Spectrum game programmer may be looking to develop on the SAM sometime this year.
