    "Olympic Games in 2D"

    Actually, graphics are one of its plus point: a chance that nostalgics can't miss. Back to the pixel. Even the athlete looks like Guybrush Threepwood!

    However, this isn't an adventure, but a sport game with a classic gameplay, the kind that I like to call gamepad killer: the faster your press buttons, the better will be the outcome. There are two game modes: "Single Event", which is perfect to practice and "Championship" which is a tour through all the available events. There are six different sports: 100 meters, long jump, 110m Hurdles, Javelin throw, 50m Freestyle (swimming) and Weight lifting.

    This all is about agility and accuracy: load the board by pressing two buttons (A&B) alternatively and press the other button (C) for performing the action. This type of controls make the game highly addictive and brings us back to those great moments with our NES.

    We're just missing online leaderboards for submitting our best marks or even an online multiplayer mode. Despite of this, retro graphics and classic gameplay will ensure loads of fun. Great game.
