Happy Birthday CD32!

27 September, 2023

It's interesting that in the modern day, some devices have come to be seen in a much more favourable light, years after release. Take the CD32 - today, it's somewhat respected as a great retro device - especially when upgraded with a modern card like the Terrible Fire 330. So on it's 30th anniversary, we are taking a look at the powerful 32-bit console in full, it's history, design and what people really thought about it back in the day, good and bad!

We know people really enjoy our coverdisks, and it seemed a shame not to take the opportunity to do something a bit special for this issue. So we're proud to announce our fully downloadable CD32 coverdisc - download it, burn it to disc for your real hardware console, or pop it in an emulator and play all the great content we've got for you! Thanks to our friends at Revolution Software, we have the fully voice-acted version of Beneath a Steel Sky for you to play, as well as other games like a special AA version of Rogue Declan Zero (reviewed this issue), the Hamulet demo and others!
