Zzap!

Zzap! was a magazine launched in May 85 for the Commodore 64. The majority of magazines at this time covered all aspects of computing but Zzap! was aimed at the gaming side. The Amiga had it's first reviews in Dec 87 (32) (alongside the Atari ST) as a feature. With the occasional feature, the Amiga became a regular from Jun 88 (38) and was reviewed along side the C64 from Oct 88 (42). With competition from Commodre Format in the 90s, the Amiga was dropped and Zzap! bacame a C64 magazine once more from Jun 91 (74). Other platforms reviewed were the C16, C128 and Arcade machines. The C16 had one feature with reviews in Aug 87 (28) and the C128 had three seperate reviews from Aug 86 (16) to Mar 88 (35) as the majority of C128 games were compatible with C64 games. Arcade Machines would occasionally be reviewed from Apr 87 (24) to Jun 92 (85). Zzap! had a complete make-over and was renamed Commodore Force after Nov 92 (90)
