Hyper Sports is a multi-event sports game and is the sequel to 1983's seminal "Track and Field
". As with "Track and Field
", the game supports up to four players and is controlled by two RUN buttons (renamed GO for this sequel) and one action - or UP - button.
Tap GO and player will accelerate, shoot or lift. Push UP and player will jump or shoot. The game offers seven different Olympic-based events, and players must achieve qualification in each event in order to progress to the next. Game is over if you fail to qualify in an event.
The seven events are :
1) Swimming-100M Freestyle : Use GO and UP buttons to regulate the speed and breath of swimmer. Tap GO button(s) to accelerate swimmer. Press UP button to allow swimmer to breath when 'breath' display appears on the screen. Swimmer will submerge if UP button is pressed any other time. Equal the computer's time for 3000 point bonus.
2) Skeet Shooting : Push either GO button to shoot. Shooting direction, left or right, coincide with GO button. Shoot clay within the red window to score. Consecutive hits expand the window, in single increments, to maximum. A miss will reduce the window to the smallest shape. 500-point clay appears after nine (9) consecutive hits. 1000 point clay appears after 19 consecutive hits. Hit all clays for a 'perfect' score.
