    WORLD OF ATHLETICS



    Test your family's athletic ability with this combination aerobic fitness center and NES skill game. It's better than weathering the outdoor elements, and a whole lot more fun! Pick your favorite sport from the Athletic World Map. Run sprints along the Animal Trail. Test agility on the Hop a Log. Family Fun Fitness is the first in a new line of pro-active games that give you a whole new way to enjoy your home NES.

    GAME PLAY: Connect the control mat to your NES and get ready to sweat! Each dot on the mat represents a different movement that propells a runner through a series of five athletic training fields. Choose the Beginner or Advanced Course depending upon your athletic ability and level of game skill. There's a time limit for each course that varies with the age and ex of player, so watch the turtle at the bottom of the screen. When he reaches the finish line, so are you. Stretch those thigh muscles! Burn those Calories! Have a great time!
