Replicated and emulated many times, Track & Field has never been convincingly decamped from the top spot in the genre it helped to create. It's a rare case of getting the gaming mechanic pretty much spot on first time (the comparably unfair hammer event excepted) - leaving imitators and sequels to pretty things up, add new events, but ultimately tip their hats to a bona fide arcade classic.
In addition to challenging events and pure originality, Track & Field offers nice (if cartoonish) graphics, rich colors, smooth animation and a terrific rendition of the theme from Chariots of Fire. Later models of Track & Field replace the dual buttons with a trackball.
