Features

A new-look Megadroid welcomes Boomers to a new-look STC and a new-look Control Zone, with the refitted droid introducing the goodies inside. There's also a mention for Speedtrack, the new email messaging service. The Sega Charts see Theme Park and Sonic 2 retain their crowns on the Mega Drive and Game Gear charts, respectively. Powermonger is a new Mega-CD leader and Sensible Soccer moves up to steal first place for the Master System.

A News Zone Extra looks over the Sega Saturn and its new games, but doesn't neglect the older systems and their peripherals. On the same page is the 32X competition, asking entrants to identify Mighty the Armadillo. David Gibbon presents a single-page Review Zone, awarding Street Racer 93%. He also mans the Q Zone, beginning a FIFA '95 special with guides to selecting a successful formation.

Speedlines features letters from Boomers, including one from the Sony Psygnosis competition winner. Megadroid also skirts over a Tails origin story and another reader discusses the return of Ecco the Dolphin. Printed letters and pictures won the readers a Highgrove Sonic Stationary set.
