Sneak Peek At This Month's Retro Gamer Magazine #124

Retro-Gamer-Magazine-124Fasten your seatbelts and put your foot down! Retro Gamer Magazine #124 has finally skidded into the shops. After the Christmas break our favourite publication is starting the year in style with a nostalgic look on 30 years of racing games, amongst many other pixel-packed articles to keep us going for another month.

Also racing into the pages of issue 124 of Retro Gamer Magazine this month is an impressive interview with Makoto Uchida, the brains (and brawn) behind Sega's hit arcade classic, Altered Beast. The home computer classic Boulder Dash is also given a well deserved retrospective with the game's creator chirping in on the puzzler, whilst David Crane returns to discuss how Activision changed the gaming landscape as we know it.

But if that wasn't enough already, you'll also find in the back pages of this very issue an advertisement from RetroCollect promoting the upcoming Video Game Market in March - something we very much hope to see you at!
