I had a Dark Tower game as a kid. I played the living hell out of it, as many kids do, and ended up semi-demolishing it, as many kids do.

I was horrified to find that they go for $150+ on eBay now. (Crossbows and Catapults was also on my list and was also expensive, though not quite that bad. Stop Thief! was surprisingly cheap.)

Luckily, some mad bastard has created a computer version of Dark Tower that supports multiple players, has computer opponents and a built-in help file, and it's impossible to lose the little figures for the player or the dragon or the ruins or whatever. (Scroll down to "Has anyone made a computer version of Dark Tower?" and download. Java 1.40 or higher required.)

Oh man, awesome. I hope I can get it to run on my Mac.

Maybe I'm thinking too deeply into this, but considering it was on a GamePro magazine, who's average readership is probably pretty young, it could be an effort to not confuse them with a logo other than the one they're used to.
