Instructions
~~~~~~~~~~~~
The idea of the game is to knock all the other players off the ever shrinking
circle, and then drive off on the bridge.

There are some variations on this theme included in this version :

   NORMAL - normal game, as described above.

   BALL - a ball is placed in the centre of the circle to be knocked into the
          players goals. There are only 4 players allowed in this game. A
          point is scored for getting a goal, and for knocking all the other
          players off.

   TEAM - this game mode allows 4 teams of 2 players each to play.

   MAGNET - all the vehicles are made into magnets and are all attracted to
            each other.

   ELASTIC - pieces of elastic join pairs of vehicles together. Great for
             swinging them off the circle! (Best played with 4 or 6 vehicles,
             otherwise it's too crowded)


Configurations
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Knockout 2 does it's best to configure itself to your particular Amiga setup.
Here is a list of configurations made :

KS1.3 Amigas - will get as far as the intro and crash. UPGRADE!

A500/A600 with 1Mb - 5 players on screen.

A500/A600 with fast mem - 6 players on screen.

A1200 with 2Mb / A500/A600 with 020+ accelerator - 8 players on screen.

A1200 with fast mem - 8 players on screen, with no names restrictions.

NTSC - can't have maximum circle size, and the title screen is snipped
       slightly.

Famous Moments
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Version 1.01 put on to AMIGA POWER's coverdisk on the APRIL 1996 issue. (I
didn't send it to them!)

Version 1.00 reviewed in AMIGA FORMAT in the FEBRUARY 1996 issue. Made PD
Selection of the Month.

Version 1.00 included on the AMIGA FORMAT subs disk (I've been told).

Why are such out of date versions used??? Those versions are both about a
year old!
