=====+++++ UPDATE +++++===== From time to time just to keep my hand in I have a look at the Amiga Active website at www.amigactive.com and to my dismay discovered that the magazine is no more. The last issue (26) went out for November 2001. A new magazine entitled Digital (issue 1 on the 27th November 2001) takes its place but it is no longer Amiga specific and costs £3.50. =====+++++ END OF UPDATE +++++===== With the near death of the Amiga computer the many magazines dedicated to that machine fell by the wayside one by one until only Amiga Format was left to keep the Amiga community informed.

All these and are taken from reviews of the dooyooCommunity.
One excellent article, bright and colourful, some fun if simple crafts.
Stories were not very good, they seem to try to hard to be artistic and forget being fun.
|How It Works|
Fascinating articles, brilliant photos, makes complex science easy to understand.
Expensive - a bit complex for 8 year olds.
|The Simple Things|
Encourages children to choose their own books, develops literacy.
Expensive - could use a few different types of choices for older children.
Vivid colours, nice illustrations, limited advertising.
Overly sweet, but terribly boring stories.
Good fast read

Boring - limited scope of articles that might have been intesting with more detail.
