Hyper Sports - Rerelease
Copyright/Publisher: Hit Squad/Imagine, Arcade: Konami/Centuri, Programmer: David Collier,
Music: Martin Galway, Release Year: 1985, Genre: Multi Events, Number Of Players: 1 or 2

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.
