World Charts #2 (1991, ECS FileChart)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Well, this issue of World Charts is pretty basic. Its main asset, as has always been the case with this particular chartmag, is the graphics. They are recognizably by Angeldawn, though signed 'IB' rather than his standard 'AD' - perhaps an indication to his real name? _NO_ credits are given anywhere, strangely, except a small graphic saying 'moral support and votecollecting by Autopsy' when it starts. This means Autopsy was involved in the production, but likely not as a member of Jump. The menus are unusually enough keyboard-controlled, with the cursor keys and return serving to select the different chart categories. A press of the space bar takes us to a separate part, with board ads, and another press takes us back. The music is atrocious.
The Jump boards advertised in this intro was 'HARPOON' (WHQ), 'ANOTHER WORLD' (EHQ) and 'ASYLUM'.

World Charts #3 (1991, ECS FileChart)

Review by Glenn Lunder

Apart from a new (and better) introductory Jump logo, and the fact that most of the categories have changed, everything is identical to the last issue, so I will refrain from explaining it all over again. Dezecrator's module is well-known, and was first used in a crack intro by Classic. It seems unlikely that they were given permission to use it. This was the last issue of World Charts under Jump; subsequent issues were released by Model.
The Jump boards advertised in this intro was 'HARPOON' (WHQ), 'ANOTHER WORLD' (EHQ) and 'ASYLUM', just like last time. </div>
