Developer Biography

Bob Wakelin was an artist from Liverpool, England who designed many game covers for Ocean Software and their sister label Imagine Software in the 1980s and 1990s. Bob has said that the cover for Operation Wolf is one of his favourites from the era. There are a few covers he did which he said that he really hates, including Parasol Stars and Gift From The Gods.

A regular at many retro events, he always had time for his fans - of whom there were many. Sadly, Bob passed away in January 2018 after fighting leukemia.
