BOUNDING ONTO THE COMMODORE 64
We’ll be featuring Gremlin Graphics’ fab top-down platform game Bounder, which is another of our favourite all-time Commodore 64 games. We’ll be putting the game through its paces, and also passing it through the Vinny-O-Matic to find some interesting POKES ‘n CODES for you all to use.
EXTENDED CHRIS SHRIGLEY INTERVIEW
And to accompany our cover feature, we chat with the creator of Bounder, Chris Shrigley, who provides us with some fascinating insights into his time at Gremlin Graphics, and also the making of his C64 games.

WE DON’T DO REVIEWS!
Did I not tell you that WE DON’T DO REVIEWS! We’ll in issue 20 we have two mini-reviews, which include Exploding Fish by Megastyle, and The Legend of Atlantis from Psytronik Software. Definitely two games worth reading about.

NEW & EXCLUSIVE POKES ‘N CODES
New games means new POKES ‘n CODES… and exclusive ones too! We share a page of POKES ‘n CODES for The Legend of Atlantis, and then a selection of cheats for the recently released Craptastic 4K compo games.
SECRET SQUIRREL INVESTIGATES
Only one page for this issue, but our intrepid squirrel finds another hidden message in a Commodore 64 budget title.
