Very Rare copy of Crash Software Review (pre-Issue 1) and Spectrum Games

Post by pigdog » Tue Jan 22, 2019 10:56 am

Hello all

A genuinely rare issue of Crash Spectrum Software review, before it officially became Crash Magazine! Also a few Speccy games!

Wow, that's something I've never seen before. That's a genuine rare Speccy relic.

That's reminded me I've got an Issue 0 of Amtix in the loft. Anyone any idea what those go for - can't see anything on eBay for Amtix.

I'm not expecting a positive reply, but I've asked the seller if they would consider scanning a copy before they send it off to the winner. If I get a reply I will let you know.

Nice find. :)

Yep, would definitely be good if it could be preserved.

Anyone know roughly how many of these were printed? Compared to, say, Crash issue #1?

Managed to get it at a cost of £30 , will get it scanned as soon as it arrives at 600dpi ;) ;)


SImon/Obo would you be able to scan your issue in at 600dpi and upload it at some point to the internet archive etc etc
