Description

One of the earliest person-licensed computer games, Olympic legend Daley Thompson lent his name to an old-style joystick waggling frenzy. Ten events were featured, including long and high jumps as well as the predictable sprints, which made for some gameplay variety. You have 3 lives, and lose one every time you fail at an event, which you usually get 3 attempts at. For each event you see both the qualifying time and the world record, which gives you something to aim at.

Trivia

Daley Thompson

In the original Sinclair Spectrum game, Daley (who is of mixed parentage) was presented as a white character with what probably was supposed to be an Afro (which he didn't even have). The Spectrum's limited colour technology partially explains this, but it's strange, and ironic considering that the CGA version of Bruce Lee changed other game colors to make Bruce's skin the wrong colour (see the trivia entry for that game).
