Feature was on strategy games, not my favorite but I appreciated the lede's reference to the movie WarGames. (Also the Broderbund ad for 5 games including "Raid on Bungeling Bay" (by Will "SimCity and The Sims" Wright) triggered some nice memories.) The article also went over the basics of Chess-playing programs
Kind of poor month overall.
Ad of the month: I thought this guy (from an ad for Datasoft's "Mancopter") was totally cool, and as a kid I would redraw it sometimes:
Cosmic Combat - Tommy Graham
3-D Labyrinth - John Stilwell
