Looking for a TTO Magazine Review

Hi there,

I realise this may be a super long-shot, but I'm hoping one of you can help.

I'm looking for a very early magazine review of TTO. If my memory serves me correct - it was January 1995 PC Gamer Magazine (UK). I think this *may* be the issue - https://www.dropbox.com/s/klfiqky34zki2 ... r.JPG?dl=0

The review was a several page feature and (specifically) included a double-page screenshot a TTO game in progress (presumably an early demo version). I recall spending a lot of time studying it trying to work out the networks etc going on in that screenshot and then, when I got my copy of the game, trying to re-create them (without any joy!)

I'd love to see that article again or possibly get hold of a copy.

Can anybody help please?

Thank you

I remember that article, and playing the demo on the cover disk. :)

While I think I still have the disk somewhere, the magazine is long gone...

I'm glad I hadn't imagined it!

The disc contents can be found and downloaded at https://archive.org/details/pcgamer-coverdisc-1995-01.

I'm also curious about the article, though. :)

In case it's actually the December '94 issue you had in mind: Here's a scan of the article: http://www.tt-ms.de/about/#tbisz

Thanks for these. I'm afraid it wasn't any of those though - perhaps it wasn't pc gamer! It was such a long time ago! The first two pages of the review had this huge screenshot of quite an advanced game, the player had setup a pretty impressive rail network in a city. There were also some road vehicles and a monorail to the north.
