Thunderhawk - Mega Power Demo #1


Free with issue 4 of Mega Power magazine - cover dated November 1993


The cover scan of issue 4 of Mega Power was kindly supplied by James Humphris
A demo CD that alternates between Operation 8 Mission 2 (an attack on Pacific islands) and Operation 1 Mission 5 (a jungle-based mission) of the full game.  The content is identical to that of the Promo CD, with the addition of the extra introduction screen shown above.  A third demo disc marked with only the Paragon Publishing logo on the front came free with issue 48 of Sega Pro CD, and the contents are identical, including the custom Mega Power loading screen shown above.

There was no cut out cover for this demo disc.


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.
