Just take a look of what I have found!

As some of you might know I am maintaining an Amiga Emu site.. While making some new The One pages I came across an issue of The One of October 1991! And I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw an in-dept interview with Steve himself! Even some cute pictures were taken of him! I've included with this message three scans.. A coverscan with Steve on it.. The interview and a 'Work In Progress' of a game developed by Steve called 'Tip Off'

So, Steve what has happened to Tip Off?? Did it ever released on the Miggy??

Anyway.. here are the scans:

Happy reading!

yeah tip off did get released and was pretty flawed...managed to get a couple of good 90+ reviews but sadly it was lacking.;

It was when i was with my first wife so it must be about 1991/2 around about then. I can probably get you a copy off tipoff but i'm not at all proud of it, it would be more of a punishment for you i think.;

I'm interested in a copy of TipOff also! I have searched for the game by all the well known Amiga Emu sites, but unfortunately the game is a bit rare.. So could you provide us with a copy? (In adf format would be nice...);

I used to enjoy playing Tip Off to be honest! - Me and my brother used to kill KO and TO... Don't put TO down too much Steve it was a really great game! <IMG SRC="/koboard/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

The problem with TO was that i tried to do too much and i was pushed down a path that was insisting that i used a two button system for the amiga, poor idea. There were some decent aspects to the game but it was flawed. The tactics designer had some nice bits though.;

I think I had a buggy copy of TipOff (crashed alot) and well, it didn't have the same feel as any K.O. game.
