Description

Eleven Track 'N' Field style events are recreated in this joystick-waggling based game. Five are simple running events of different distances ranging from 100 meters to 1500 meters. Unlike Daley Thompson's Decathlon the longer events don't involve a different technique, or different performance measurements, making the 1500m quite tiring. There are also three throwing events (Javelin, Discus and Hammer), and the High / Long / Triple Jump events. Each event has a pre-defined world record to chase.

Screenshots

Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 1: Running
Each event has its own set of help screens. This is the help screen for running events. Help is accessed as menu option 8
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 2: Discus
Typing too fast has this result
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 5: Long Jump
Very similar to the javelin. The player bashes the run keys to achieve some speed and then presses the 'Jump' button when the character reaches the plate
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 1: Running
The start of a race. The computer runs as white and the player as black. The countdown is the traditional Get, Set, Go!
