Ultra Game Players …

marktrade released raw scans of several issues of this title some time ago. Before I could get onto it Retromags member Depressor has edited and released them. With his permission I am releasing them here. As a result issue 103 is now available.

What I have altered from his version is:

  • I cleaned up the cover a lot as it was quite damaged and removed the spine from the front cover scan
  • Placed the supplemental pages back where they were situauted in the magazine according to marktrade's original scans instead of the back of the PDF where Depressor had placed them. Nothing problematic, it's just that I prefer the magazine to include content where it was situated in the magazine where possible
  • Adjusted the vertical height in pixels so all pages are the same for better dual page viewing

Feel free to grab this here if you like a PDF version or visit Retromags if you prefer CBR/CBZ iterations.

Compute! …

Jason's collection is thinning out thanks to all the scanning he has done over the last year or two so we're starting to get into scanning the classics. 🙂

First up we have issue 87 of this multi-format magazine

Computer Games (1983) …

Yesterday, a huge pile of magazines arrived on my doorstep from Cameron.This pile incorporates a large selection of issues for Computer Games:Strategy Plus along with several issues of a flight simulation magazine out of Australia called Computer Pilot. In additon to those we also received issue 09 (according to Retromags database) of this 1983 vintage magazine which is now available to download and enjoy. There's a great article on Lucasarts talking Ballblazer (cover story) and Rescue on Fractalus.Oh my, what a little beauty!!!

marktrade has been releasing 600DPI versions of his latest magazine releases on This awesome monster weighed in at 1.3GB's in size so I have reduced the resolution to 300PDI with a vertical height of 3300 pixels for a more palatable 327MB version. If you want a smaller version head on over to Retromags or if you are into sensationally huge files head on over to marktrade's archive page, the link of which we shouted out in a previous post recently.
