SoulStar - Mega Power Demo #3


Free with issue 10 of Mega Power - cover dated May 1994


The cover scan of issue 10 of Mega Power was kindly supplied by Anthony Barker
A demo CD featuring the full first three levels of the full version of SoulStar.  The same demo code was released on a combined demo CD that also featured the first level of Battlecorps, free with issue 14 of Mega Power.  The SoulStar Paragon Publishing demo given away with issue 49 of Sega Pro CD was probably identical, but this is unconfirmed.

A note about Mega Power demo numbers - Mega Power provided cut out covers for the demo CDs (you had to supply your own case as they came in plastic wallets) for the majority of their demos.  Whilst these demos reached number 12, the numbers don't quite correspond to the order they came in.  Discs 1 to 6 run in sequence up to August 1994, then September's issue included the Battlecorps & SoulStar double disc, which doesn't have a number.  The numbers then continued in October with the cover for that demo showing #7.  To add further to the confusion, November's demo cover had both #8 and #9 on it, and December continued at #10!

In short, the covers run up to #12, and there are 12 discs, but the chronological order doesn't match the numbers.
