The classic Imagine sports sim with the superb 'Chariots Of Fire'-style music has finally
been rereleased and is sure to be a hit. No less than six events have been crammed into
a single load:
Swimming - left/right keyboard bashing, but remember to come up for air!
Skeet shooting - computer controlled sights, but you've got to select which sight
and time your shots in a superb reaction tester.
Long horse - fire to run, to jump off the springboard and launch into somersaults
(left/right key bashing again).
Archery - as the target moves down the screen press fire to release your arrow, and choose its angle.
Triple jump - use fire to make your jumps and set the angles.
Weight lifting - keyboard bashing time again.
As you can see Hypersports has its fair share of joystick waggling, but unlike many
other games of the period there's great gameplay as well. Graphically and sonically
superb, with lots of great touches copied from the Konami arcade game, this is the sports
sim which even people who hate this type of game will love. An essential purchase.
