In 1984 K Power Knew About Hackers And Riptide!

K Power - Riptide
This is one of the many ‘treasures’ I found while cleaning out the back room a couple of months back, a 1984 issue of K Power with the main story being Thom Bray and the Roboz from the Riptide TV series. As you can see from the cover provided above it also discussed the Movie Maker software…that was awesome on the Commodore 64…as well as reviews for games like Beach-Head and Pogo Joe.

While the Scholastic Inc. magazine advertised itself as being the magazine for the computer generation it sadly only had a run of eight issues before being merged with Family Computing where it ran from 1985 to 1987.
