Hyper Olympic was released in October 1983 in Japan. It is known outside Japan as "Track & Field". For more information about the game, please see the Konami "Track & Field" (international version) entry.

Hyper Olympic is a resounding success, especially amongst real-life athletes who live to take out their aggression on animate or inanimate objects. The game inspires an all-new level of two-player competition in arcades.


The bootleg version features different speech, as the original sound hardware could not be totally hacked - the slightly different voices are allegedly those of the bootleggers themselves! Also, it contains a typo : the word HEIGHT replaces the original HIGHT.
