Decap Attack

Monster of the Year is a 3-part story by Kitching and Tom Frame. Professor Frank N. Stein and company have made it to the Monster of the Year awards, but have to make it past a surly butler. Inside, Chuck D. Head accidentally steps on Doctor X's creation, Terry, and begins a fight with the other contestants in his category.

Knuckles the Echidna

The Homecoming is a 4-part story, with writing by Kitching, art from Nigel Dobbyn and letters by Elitta Fell. The Guardian Robot has destroyed the Master Emerald and is beginning to absorb its power. This allows it to knock Knuckles aside. Doctor Zachary reveals his plan to destroy the people of Mobius, but Knuckles intervenes and breaks the robots wing. Before the pair can fight, the Floating Island heads towards a mountain range.

Sonic's World

Cybernik Strikes Back is a 5-part story written by Lew Stringer, drawn by Carl Flint, coloured by John M Burns and lettered by Steve Potter. Shortfuse the Cybernik has paid a visit to Citadel Robotnik to rescue Tekno the Canary, but she has been grabbed by Metamorphia. However, she reveals that her powers have gone, giving Tekno an easy victory. Shortfuse then lets Doctor Robotnik live, preferring to humiliate him.

Features

Megadroid (wearing a beard) hosts a festive Control Zone and plans to dance to "Jingle Bells" to get the Humes in the spirit. There's also a way to turn the Asteron poster inside into a Christmas tree decoration. The snowy Sega Charts see FIFA Soccer '95 and Mickey Mouse 2 remain top of the Mega Drive and Master System charts. Elsewhere, Ground Zero: Texas is a re-entry in first place for the Mega-CD chart and Star Trek: The Next Generation has moved to the top of the Game Gear list.

The theme of this issue's Graphic Zone is the "Grotto Graphic Zone" with Sonic and friends enjoying the holidays. Printed pictures won the artists a pack of Crayola Overwriters. Neil Bryant presents the Review Zone, presenting Waterworld for the Mega Drive a respectable 77%.

Speedlines (again presented by Megadroid with a beard) features letters about a Metallix admirer, a visitor to the UKCAC and there's a discussion about "Sega Saturn vs Sony PlayStation". Featured letters were rewarded with a Highgrove Sonic Stationary set. The two pieces of fan art have mistakenly had their credits mixed up.[1]
