NotesEdit

Issue 31 was banned from the leading newsagents stores as there was a playable demo of Cover Girl Poker on the cover disk - ( http://amr.abime.net/trivia_13 Amiga Magazine Rack Trivia ) Issue 33 was redesigned without the spine and looked more youth orientated. More colour, bigger logo etc.
