New Kickstarter: The Mastertronic Archives.

The Mastertronic Archives

Mastertronic is the company that most people associate with the Spectrum 48k and C64.. The memories are still fresh in my mind from the days I used to pop to the local newsagent and buy a £1.99 game. This book will no doubt rekindle lots of fond memories for many retro fans..

Founded in 1983 by Martin Alper, Frank Herman and Alan Sharam, Mastertronic went on to become one of the UK's biggest home video game publishers of the 1980s. The company's marketing strategy of putting games on shelves at the low price of just £1.99, when most other games sold from £4.99, resulted in booming sales and massive profits for the London based company. 

This Kickstarter aims to produce both a standard volume and an enhanced collector's volume detailing the history of these games.


First up is the Standard Edition 256 page hardcover book covering all of the Mastertronic £1.99 releases including game reviews, game credits, screen shots, cover images and more.


The special 512 page Collector's Edition includes everything in the Standard Edition, PLUS an additional 256 pages featuring game reviews, game credits, screen shots, cover images and more of the other Mastertronic labels such as M.A.D., Americana, Rebound, Rack-It, etc PLUS the unique disk releases.
