Commodore Format was a popular but very late magazine dedicated to the Commodore 64 published in the U.K. The first issue was not published until late 1990. However, despite this, it had a relatively long life lasting well into the mid 1990s. The May 1995 issue includes:


  • Get animated! - Inside everyone there's a budding Walt Disney. Untap your hidden potential

  • Grin and repair it! Part II - Do you run to the casualty department with a cold? Do you ignore gaping, gushing wounds? Course not! Jason Finch talks you through diagnosing a sick C64, assessing the gravity of the situation and suggests remedial action - where appropriate.


  • Games arena - Andy Roberts straps on his ungainly yet protective reviewer's helmet to visit the unpredictable world of the latest C64 games.


  • Games round-up II - Andy Roberts sorts the wheat from the chaff, and eventually sees the wood for the trees.

  • Public Domain - The world of all-you-can-get-for-almost-nothing. Andy Roberts goes in and returns, triumphant.
