Hyper Sports, Konami, 1984

Olympic athlete of stature

Pushing buttons or rolling the trackball as quick as possible, in Hyper Sports (the follow-up of the slightly more popular Track & Field) the player slips into a high class olympic athlete. On this machine up to four players can compete against each other or against computer controlled competitors. Nice extras (easter eggs) come into picture, if you break a record. If you swim the same time as your competitor a frog appears on the screen, shoot a rose impeccably and it transforms into an apple for some extra bonus points.

We kindly thank Alexander Krone for lending us the Hyper Space on display in the Arcade exhibition.
