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.

Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 1: Running
The first screen offers a selection of distances
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 7: Pole Vault
Very similar to the High jump. The player sets the height, runs to build up speed, then has to press the 'Vault' button at the right time, (not like this).
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 2: Discus
The player must enter the assigned sequence at just the right speed to keep the concentration indicator central
Micro Olympics ZX Spectrum Event 2: Discus
This is the help screen for the Discus & the Javelin
