Old Spectrum Mags – Your Spectrum Challenge 15 – June 1985


It is been a extended time given that I took a appear at the Your Spectrum magazines (as explained in my initial post about old Spectrum mags). But the new Spectrum Subsequent laptop is nearing launch, so I believed I would catch up with the remaining mags I nonetheless haven’t looked at however. Here’s my appear at the highlights of Your Spectrum Challenge 15 from June 1985.

All photos are taken from the ever-amazing Web Archive. Right here is the complete magazine if you want to take a closer appear. https://archive.org/specifics/your-spectrum-magazine-15

In the web page above it is terrific to see the three-two-1 Ted Rogers reference and also to see Jools Holland presenting Ultimate with a golden joystick award!

Cool to see a assessment of a hacking book which references my all time favourite film, WarGames (which was only about two years old at this point). A nicely written piece in the style of Adrian Mole. And yet another jibe at the Sinclair C5 with the image of Super Gran!

Appear at that Leading Ten. Almost just about every game is a classic. And 4 games in the Leading Ten from Ultimate!

The legend that is Bob Holness. I’ll have a Z and an X please Bob!

50 games on 1 cassette. That is just crazy. You would require a tape counter on your cassette deck for certain!

Just such as this web page as it is not their frequent artist.

I’ve by no means heard of this game, Starion. It appears like a bit of a clone of my favourite game of all time, Elite. May well be worth checking out!

Bit weird that this add leads with a line that at a glance appears like ‘Frankie Goes To Hollywood’ but basically the cover photo is of Blancmange!

I had by no means genuinely heard about Modems in 1985. Very good of them to be speaking about that sort of issue in this mag even though.

I’ve heard so a lot of folks rave about how cool these old microfairs utilized to be.
