The worthy charity this time is the National Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Children, which will use the profits to combat child abuse (see the news piece in CRASH issue 43). The contents range from the 1984 Ultimate success Lunar Jetman to hits of 1987 like Xeno, Deactivators and Mailstrom.
