Brian Jacks' Superstar Challenge

Regular readers will know my feelings about sports simulations and this one does nothing to change my mind! Apart from the constant worry about keyboard bashing (poor old Z and X keys!), there is a certain mental inertia about games where success largely depends on how fast you can co-ordinate keyboard bashing!

This one stands out from the pack only in terms of the range of events - arm dips, squat thrusts, canoeing, cycling, football, swimming, archery and 100 metres.

Originally released by Martech back in 1985. Good value, machine code, lots of fun, just not for me.
