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

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. :)

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

James.

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!
