Thunderhawk - Paragon Publishing Demo


Free with a issue 48 of Sega Pro CD - cover dated August 1995

The scan of the Thunderhawk Paragon Demo CD was kindly supplied by David Rogers

The cover scan of issue 48 of Sega Pro CD was kindly supplied by Tiago Santana


Whilst this demo CD came with one of the later issues of Sega Pro CD, it is not believed to contain anything different to either the promo disc or the Mega Power demo CD (which both contain the same levels from the full game).  David has confirmed that this disc has the custom Mega Power loading screen shown above from my own Mega Power demo CD.

It was issued at this time with Mega Power to coincide with the upcoming preview of the sequel, Firestorm: Thunderhawk 2 for the Saturn (and Playstation).


A note about Sega Pro CD  issue numbers - originally Sega Pro CD was published separately from Sega Pro, staring in October 1994 with issue 1.  At the start of 1995 Paragon began using the issue number sequence from the original Sega Pro on both - hence the big jump.  Versions with and without the cover CD were available (with a price difference) and those who bought the wrong one could send away 3.95 to get the demo posted to them.
