American print magazines for the C64

Post by Professor Brian Strain »

So, did anyone read these? What were your favourites? And how did they compare to the mighty ZZAP!? (I know, nothing can compare!)

Trying to research some of them like Run, Transactor, etc for my current book project...

My understanding of them, is that they certainly weren't game magazines. Probably more like the old British C= mags before Crash / Zzap came along and changed everything!

I guess America never really fully got into playing games on a full computer rather than console, since the NES was out there in 1985 (?). It's very interesting to look back at the different worldwide markets and the differences, especially since it's all pretty much the same these days... :(
