Retro #1 (1997, 15.11, AGA Multifile Diskmag)

Review by Glenn Lunder

First impressions are less than great, with some dodgy graphics by Psycho introducing us to the mag. The mag itself doesn't have a stunning interface either, but they also admit this in their editorial, and promise to improve for the next issue. Three pieces of music by the same author is perhaps a little much, some variation could be in order. They do seem to have used the classic "MicroKnight" font, but we will forgive them for now. The code does seem to be functional though, and the mag works fine. No cliparts, scrolling or other fancy effects, but again they promise more for the next issue. Not much to read this time either, but again... This is a mag I expect I will wait for the next issue before I really judge.
No-one is really credited as editor, but Psycho seems to be the one doing the most for the mag. Almost certainly released outside a party.

Friendship 2 (ECS Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

This intro is marred by bad graphics (except for the cartoon-stuff, which was likely scanned), and an extremely annoying chiptune. The coding here is just sub-par, as is the rest of the production. A really lifeless intro.
No release date, credits or other useful info appears anywhere inside =[
