Readers Praise Retrocade Magazine

"I've got both issues of this wonderful publication, and they are both chalk-full of fun retro-gaming coverage. I think my personal favorite thing are all the old-school advertisements, logos, and screenshots used by Rob and his crew to make each page colorful, inviting, and readable."

"You'll spend a good half-hour just scanning the 182 pages of this sophomore issue, let alone reading the articles that interest you. It's a PDF document, so you can save it to multiple devices after purchase - I feel like a commercial. I promise you'll enjoy it!"

"Absolutely fantastic. I ordered both issues. I won't miss an issue from here on out. Superb. Great articles, great pics, high scores, just absolute retro gaming goodness. My compliments to Mr. Maerz and everyone else who worked on/contributed to this fantastic magazine. Bravo."

"I bought both mags as well... GREAT work on these and definitely worth every penny!"

"I just ordered the first issue, and must say it is very well done, Highly recommend it to everyone out there."
