"Zzap!Raine, the Raine magazine, was born to verify the emulation
quality and the Raine supported games popularity (our opinion), considering only

We'll review, test and rate games, drawing inspiration from Zzap!64, the famous
For those who don't know what Zzap!64 is, here below they'll find
the first editorial dated "May 1985":
to the first issue of Zzap!64, the magazine dedicated to entertainment
on the world's greatest home computer.
Without being too immodest, we happen to think the magazine you
are holding is going to cause quite a stir. Until now Commodore
64 fun - lovers in search of a good read have had to choose between
the general games magazines (and put up with boring stuff about
Spectrums, etc.) and the oh-so-serious Commodore magazines (and put
up with pages of complex computer jargon written by unintelligible
boffins). Which is strange, because by far and away the most common
use of a 64 is running the superb games and entertainment software
available for it. Zzap!64 is dedicated purely and simply to helping
you get the most out of these programs. It should help you decide
which of them are worth buying, and it should help you get more
pleasure out of those you already own. It's a mag which we hope
every 64 owner can understand, get to know and come to love. We've
had an amazing time putting this first issue together. Hope you
have an amazing time reading it.
you next month.
