Amiga CD32 magazine was the fourth and final title to spin-off from Amiga Format. The previous three (Amiga Shopper, Amiga Power, and Amiga Format Special) had all been a success. However, events would conspire to kill the magazine before it had even left the runway.
The first issue, dated Spring 1994, was released in March of that year. The 92 page magazine featured the usual game reviews and tips, but also included more in-depth information, such as an industry commentary on the new machine and David Pleasance interview. Reaction to the magazine was positive, leading to the production of a second issue during Autumn 1994. This expanded upon the coverage of the first issue to provide a glimpse of the possibilities that CD technology provided. There was also the news that the magazine would move to a monthly publication, beginning with the release of issue 3 on December 1st. However, the Commodore liquidation and the relative difficulty in finding new hardware forced the cancellation of these plans- issue 3 never saw the light of day.
