Bouncing Bytes pacmenu (1993, late, ECS packmenu)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Well, this menu offers no eyecandy of any kind, just the basics. Upon loading, it presents you with a badly drawn Interactive logo, the choice of some productions in the middle of the screen and a scroller at the bottom. The whole thing unfortunately both looks and feels amateurish. You can press the right mousebutton for a 'magpart', done in the same design and not much better. The text is just the usual, 'news' and adverts. I cannot bring myself to recommend this to anyone. At least it works just fine on accelerated machines.
The issue reviewed was #3 [12/93]. The menu was used for at least issues #1-#3, and from this we think it was first released late 93, November or possibly December.

First Love (1995, 28.12, AGA 40k Intro)

Review by Glenn Lunder

This sucks. No design, no impressive effects, and the music is a serious contender for 'worst chiptune of 1995'. It all opens with some flame-text, which is the best effect in the intro. Then we're taken on to a stretching zoomrotator (oooold!), a transforming dot-object (older!), and some other equally uninteresting stuff. Avoid.
