Diskzines, or rather fanzines on disk, are very popular with the European CPC scene. They outnumber paper fanzines and have often been criticised as being little more than fancy demos with some text thrown in.

The Bad Mag is different. There are no fancy space-filling intros in this 'zine - just 68 lengthy articles. That doesn't mean that it's badly coded. Crown has made the best use of his coding skill to produce the best-looking, and most user-friendly, fanzine ever.

A european diskzine - but don't panic , a good half it is written in English.

The whole thing is in overscan (no border) and most ot the screen is filled with text. There is a small heading at the top. and a small control bar at the bottom.

Control is simplicity itself. Text can be scrolled from right to left, column by column, using a joystick or keys. When you've finished reading hit the spacebar to bring back the menu. Then you can choose your next article. Any time you can't figure out what to do hit escape and a handy help file will appear.

As for the all-important content, anything goes. It might be a CPC fanzine, but it includes a large number of norv CPC articles. They range from a review of Super Cautdton, to How to Make Love in a Car (by Lovebyte of the HJT of course!). Most of the articles are well written and highly amusing. Being a German diskzine. many of them are in German, but more than hall are in English so you can't complain.

In short, the Bad Mag represents exactly what a diskzine should be. It gives clever coding a practical purpose and is an extremely enjoyable read. No other diskzine comes close to matching it.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
