Welcome to the wonderful world of Crapverts!
In the early days of home computer games, advertising was… different. Today we take for granted modern magazine layout software, graphic design tools and marketing tricks and tips. In the early 80s – and at the start of the video games industry – things were different. A lot different!
‘Crapverts’ is a funny look back at some of the games adverts in gaming magazines of the time that were… unique, or unusual – or downright weird – or crap! Sometimes you may forget what they were actually advertising – much like the creators of the adverts. However, they all had a purpose and were often filling the pages between the games reviews. It is, therefore, our duty to look back and laugh at them!
