Tilt was a French magazine which began publication in September 1982,[1] focused on personal computer and console gaming. It was the first French magazine specifically devoted to video games.[1] The headquarters of the magazine was in Paris.[2]

The name of the magazine was a nod to the pinball term, where excessive nudging of a pinball machine would result in a "tilt" penalty, and the loss of a turn during gameplay. The final issue of Tilt was published January 1994.[3]
