880 Gamer Magazine

Published 03 November 2018


880 Gamer was a quality online magazine publishing up to the end of 2015. Since then it has gone quiet. The editorial quality was excellent and the reviews looked at both the good and the bad. It is also a good section on demo music for the Commodore Amiga. Unusually for modern magazines, there is a digital disk to download as well that is packed full of games and demos.

Editorial Review

It is a big jump to go from Issue 7 in September 2014 to Issue 8 in December 2015. Readers can tell that the editor had lost his writing pace. This was a shame as there was plenty of material to work through. It is kind of unusual to have so many low rating games to review. The game selection looks like a grab bag from different genres and release years. The editor has gone to great effort to pick interesting screenshots and it shows. There are also an interesting selection of advertisements.

This particular 880 Gamer issue is focused on space trading games, particularly the Elite game franchise. We share a similar passion on our Elite game franchise section. The magazine editor has also added a useful selection of Elite game cheat codes.

One quibble we have with the magazine is with the demo review section. The editor needs to provide a link to the demo file. Do you know how hard it is to search for the correct Rebels ADF demoscene file?
