Ah, the Grand-daddy of all sports games enters into the arena once again. Endorsed by Olympic champion Daley Thompson, who went on to endorse Supertest and Olympic Challenge, it features ten events (naturally enough), which are split into two days of gruelling sportsmanship. Day one, on the A side, has the 100 metres, long jump, shotput, high jump and the 400 metres. While on the B side you compete in 110 metres hurdles, discus, pole-vault, javelin and finally the killer event 1500 metres.

The cause of so many joystick deaths (due to the fast 'n' furious stick waggling needed throughout all ten events), looks a tad crude on the graphics front by today's standards, but still retains the playability factor which made it such a hit!
