Welcome to the Amiga Magazine Rack!
Amiga Power 19 The Amiga Magazine Rack was launched in early 2007 after more than 2 years of development. The website you see today grew from 3 independent coverdisk and review indexes independently compiled by members of the Hall of Light team.

The site has close ties with the Hall of Light games database, with extensive cross-linking between the two sites. As a result, the current focus of the Amiga Magazine Rack is games, although application/hardware reviews and serious articles will be indexed in the fullness of time.

The Amiga Magazine Rack is backed by a large review database which is linked to tens of thousands of scanned pages.

The team wishes to thank RCK for making all of this possible - without his offer to host the site the project would not have come into existence.

If you wish to contribute to the project read the information below or contact one of the team members.

26 June 2015 - Zero issue 36

The final issue of Zero came out in October of 1992, and the full scans of every page are now available!
25 June 2015 - All editorial content from Zero issue 2 (December 1989) is now online!

Zero was never one of my favourite magazines, with a bizarre excuse for "humour" and even the most dire game seemed to score 70% or more. Zero issue 2 contained quite a nice preview of Ghouls 'n' Ghosts including an interview with David J. Broadhurst.

All editorial content is now online so enjoy!

Did You Know?
Ocean are a crap company

Amiga Power got itself in trouble with Ocean Software after the following letter was printed in the letters section of AP17 on page 95:

Dear AMIGA POWER,
A few weeks ago I wrote to Ocean saying somebody was selling pirated games at a market. I asked them what I should do, two weeks later they replied to me with a price list of games I can buy. I think Ocean are a crap company.
Yours, Chris Hughes, Harrogate

The problem was Amiga Power had recently decided to head each letter with an amusing out-of-context snippet from the letter itself. In this case they chose the heading "Ocean are a crap company".

Thus, a reader who had merely been attempting to assist Ocean in preventing the piracy of their games, inadvertently caused a huge rift to develop between the UK's biggest Amiga software publisher at the time and Amiga Power.
