I might have a few Hi-Tec games in the loft, which ones are you missing?

I'm not sure right now - I've got to catalogue them.. but thanks!

Skunkfish

As research for the article I began to catalogue all Hi-Tec releases across all platforms, going by the HTxxx reference numbers on the games - lots of gaps though...

Fingers crossed! Interesting as I posted them both together - Royal Mail must be collating the issues somehow!

Received issues two and three. Brilliant!


Is there anywhere I can buy a copy of issue one? I didn't know this even existed until a few weeks ago, and would love to get my hands on a copy of the missing issue.


Thanks in advance. :)


Skunkfish

I'm glad you enjoyed them!
You can grab a PDF of issue 1 from https://www.cpcstore.co.uk/cpcfanzine
I'll have to investigate and see if I can do another small run of the first issue as there has been a bit of interest....

I'd get one as I can't seem to find it.. (wouldn't surprise me if I've either lost it or didn't get it)

Hi Skunkfish.
I've just ordered issue 3.
Is there any way of getting issues 1 and 2?

Hi James.
My copy of issue 3 arrived today, and it's brilliant!.
Just one minor critique, is that black print on a relatively dark background, is a bit of a strain for 59 year old eyes.
Otherwise, it's most enjoyable. Keep up the good work! :D

Hi Alan,

I'm really glad you enjoyed it, your feedback spurs me on to get the next issue out!

Point noted on the legibility, will try to improve this in the next issue!

Thanks

Ok, thanks James.
First time round, I was reading it in artificial light, legibility is much better in daylight. ;D
I'm eagerly anticipating issue 4!

@Skunkfish Is there an update on the Christmas edition? Has it been published yet?

It will be soon, sorry for the delay.
I was ill in December so that delayed things a bit, it's pretty much ready to go - I'm just proofreading everything before it goes to the printers. Sadly it's missed Christmas though :(

Aye, your health is more important than anything else - so whenever you feel up to it :)

Maybe it's just really, really early for Christmas '22  :D


Btw, did I order one, I can't remember?

Good idea. Perhaps I'll make it a Christmas 21/22 issue, sort of cover both off?  ;D
And, yes you did order one. I assume you received the other issues ok?
