Commodore Format Logo

Commodore Format was the latest C64 magazine to be published, arriving on the scene as late as 1990. It was of a similar format to Zzap and was a welcome bit of competition to keep Zzap on its toes. This magazine was published by Future Publishing, so at least there was very little chance of it going bust. It was also totally C64 at a time when Zzap still had Amiga reviews in it. Commodore Format was still going strong through all of Zzap's troubles and actually survived ZZap in the market place. After Zzap went bust (for the second time), CF went very thin and it's cover tape got worse (the joys of a monopoly) but still continued publishing for a fair few months, finishing up sometime in 1995 I think.
