WELCOME to the first issue of Zzap!64, the magazine dedicated to entertainment on the world's greatest home computer.
Without being too immodest, we happen to think the magazine you are holding is going to cause quite a stir. Until now Commodore 64 fun - lovers in search of a good read have had to choose between the general games magazines (and put up with boring stuff about Spectrums, etc) and the oh-so-serious Commodore magazines (and put up with pages of complex computer jargon written by unintelligible boffins).
Which is strange, because by far and away the most common use of a 64 is running the superb games and entertainment software available for it.
Zzap! 64 is dedicated purely and simply to helping you get the most out of these programs. It should help you decide which of them are worth buying, and it should help you get more pleasure out of those you already own. It's a mag which we hope every 64 owner can understand, get to know and come to love.
We've had an amazing time putting this first issue together. Hope you have an amazing time reading it.
See you next month.
