Thanks for looking.

Tip Off is a basketball game released for the Amiga and Atari. It was developed in 1991 by Anco Software. Game Boy version was developed by Enigma Variations and published by Imagineer in Europe. An unreleased NES version was also in development.

In the past, the words “Game Boy” and “basketball” didn’t belong in the same sentence, but Tip Off sets a new standard for Game Boy basketball carts.

It’s Gotta Be the…Options!

Any true gamer will appreciate the vast selection of options that Tip Off offers. The four hoops games include a free-throw contest and an international tournament. The five skill levels range from International to Youth, and you can choose your opponent’s skill level as well. Imagine the U.S. National team squaring off against local hotshots in a pick-up game!

The sharp graphics and wide-open courts give you a clear view of the action. Although the sprites are small, (hey move smoothly, and the overhead view enables you to execute good passing plays.

Crowd noise and sound effects add realism to the game. All that’s missing is an announcer’s voice to intensify the action.

Fast-Break Action

Tip Off’s awesome controls are probably the best feature of the game. Bounce a pass through the defender’s legs or tire one down the court for a fast break. When it comes time to shoot, you can easily send up a running jump shot, a hook, or the ever-powerful slam dunk.

UBI Soft has created an interesting and challenging cart that most basketball enthusiasts will enjoy. There’s finally a handheld basketball game with enough options to make any head coach smile.


  • Shooting is simple – there’s only one way to do it. Release Button A at the very top of your jump, or you might miss the rim completely.
  • When you throw a pass, hit Button B just before the ball gets to the receiver. He’ll jump to catch the pass.
