We’ve a selection of great Making Of articles this month, too. Chris Crawford tells us about Balance Of Power, we learn how Monster World IV was created and what’s planned for the new remake, and find out how Raven Software crafted its incredible action RPG, X-Men Legends.
We’ve more retro goodness in the form of Ultimate Guides for Nintendo’s Donkey Kong Jr and Capcom’s Power Stone and we also look at the history of Eidos and how it was formed from the embers of Domark.
We’ve a great selection of smaller articles as well, covering such diverse subjects as Star Fox, the CD32 Controller, Ninja Gaiden Black, Lock ‘N’ Chase, Celeste, the latest Evercade cartridges and much, much more.
Thanks for all your continued support. Stay safe and we’ll see you all next month.
