Two of my favourite things – retro computer magazines and Lara Croft – are combining in issue 18 of Pixel Addict, out in early February.
Available to pre-order now, Pixel Addict #18 not only sports Lara Croft on the cover, she is the focus of the mag’s main feature, which looks at the original trio of games and how Tomb Raider spearheaded a cultural phenomenon that broke down barriers in gaming. The new edition also features a chat with RGL’s Paul Andrews about the upcoming release the Atari THE400 Mini console.
Issue 18 of this retro computer magazine also includes:
- Curious Video Game Machines book review.
- The rise and fall of company Palm Inc, along with an overview of competing PDA products of the 90s.
- Steve Cottam of Antstream Arcade reveals his plans for the premier streaming service for classic games fans.
- Rare vintage computers including the Panosonic JR-200U.
- Matthew Smith looks back at the 2008 movie Max Payne and considers how it holds up today.
- Acorn computer collecting with Andrew Hutchings.
- Old 80s collectors toys, this month we feature Action Force and Baron Ironblood.
- Roving reporter Andrew Siddall visits RetroCollective, to interview Neil Thomas of Retro Man Cave and Alex Crowley of Arcade Archive.
- We take a spicy trip to Arrakis to learn why the original Dune computer game was so special.
- Our NES Assembly Programming series continues with controller input coding.
- Funspot: the world’s largest arcade!
