This is the official license of Winter Olympics tournament in 1994 at Lillehammer, Norway. You can practice in any event before the tournament. The game offers two modes - Full Olympics and Mini Olympics, which vary in the number of events.

It includes 5 different types of sports - biathlon, alpine skiing (downhill, slalom, giant slalom and Super-G), ski jumping (90 m, 120 m), bobsleigh (2/4 men bob, 1/2 men luge) and skating (elimination, pursuit, time trial). The events use 3D views.

The game's instruction manual (for the PC and Amiga versions, at least) is notably poorly worded. A number of grammatical mistakes are made, and several sections make little sense. Examples include "made of concrete to high standards, competitors are subjected to forces of up to 4G" (which, taken literally, suggests that the competitors are made of concrete - the reference to the bobsleigh course was in the previous sentence), and a suggestion that, in Full Olympic mode, you can watch the opening ceremony AFTER completing the events.
