AFCOMMENTS
ST/Amiga Format was evolving at a fast rate, gradually improving the layout and separating features into ST or Amiga-only. This issue featured reviews of the Atari CD-ROM, ST Space Harrier, and Amiga Photon Paint. Amiga graphics looked better than the ST, but the market still favoured the latter.

AFA SNIPPET FROM THE ISSUE
French-based magazine, A-News were have problems with Commodore France. The head of the French subsidiary, Franke Lanne, decided that the market was 'too young' for a dedicated Amiga magazine. He attempted to prevent the launch by withholding press releases, openly supporting a competitor, and forbidding the use of 'Amiga', 'Kickstart', and 'Workbench' on the front cover.
