31/03/2021

For so many Commodore 64 owners, Zzap! 64 was the magazine of choice.  It had a review system where multiple reviewers would play the game and agree a suitable set of scores, even if their opinions would differ depending on the game being played, a comprehensive tips section which was always a positive help for games proving challenging, and it was the first magazine to really touch upon to the way that the SID sound chip was being used to bring some quality game soundtracks to the masses, especially with the likes of their Musicians’ Ball interviews. In this Article Warren Pilikington revisits those charts and presents them in a statistical format.
