Description

Alien Olympics is a wacky combination of track & field games and retro-arcade games that you play as an alien. There are 8 unique alien characters that you can choose and compete against. Each alien has different strengths and weaknesses. For example, Mr. Mune (a caterpillar-like alien) has many legs enabling him be very good at shooting events but also makes it difficult for him in racing events.

You can either compete against a friend by sharing the keyboard or against the computer. There are a total of 15 different events to compete in and you have the choice of tackling a selected few, or going through the whole series. You also have the option of practicing first to get the hang of things.

The 15 events are:
  • 50 Qrbit Dash (Racing)
  • Laser Leaping (Hurdling)
  • The Big Bounce (Long jump)
  • Laser Skeet I (Shooting Targets)
  • 200 Qbit Splurge (Racing)
  • Lunge Leap Splat (Triple jump)
  • Toxophilly (Archery)
  • Flob Flop (Shot put)
  • Saber Launch (Javelin throw)
  • Survival (A Pac-Man variant)
  • Alien Hurl (Another throwing game, but your alien is now the object to be thrown by a giant robot)
  • Laser Skeet II (Shooting Targets)
  • Jetpack Tag (similar to Asteroids)
  • Lizard Leap (Pole vault)
  • Wall Jumping (High jump)
