Which Diskmags for MSDOS (era 1990-1995) are worth reading?

category: general [glöplog]
I just found a small joy in DOSBOX and I wondered which oldschool Diskmags for MSDOS from the era of 1990 1995 are worth reading and watching?

And also where to get them?

You can find reviews of all demoscene-related, English-language diskmags released for PC in Hugi #36 (International Diskmag Encyclopedia). Diskmags can be downloaded at scene.org. Some of the better MS-DOS based diskmags from the 1990 - 1995 were Imphobia, Daskmig, Scenial, Bad News, Parrot, Pulse and Contrast. But there were also some very good diskmags on other platforms, especially on the Amiga (RAW, ROM, Seenpoint, Generation,...).

Imphobia. The rest were shit. On the Amiga you have quite a few choices though - Jurrasic Pack was always a favourite.

I like "Beyond the horizon".
It's mostly about ANSI/ASCII, but anyways :)

Imphobia was clearly in a league of its own... highly recommended. I have fond memories of reading it in the small hours while listening to those amazing modules they were using :)

For a quick read, Wilby (4kb diskmag) was quite fun for some reason.
