World Games

This is an eight-event sports simulation produced by Epyx when they were at their programming peak. In it you can lift weights in Russia, a ski slalom course in France, toss cabers in Scotland, dive from a cliff in Mexico, ride a bull in the USA, stay on a rolling log in Canada, jump barrels on ice-skates in Germany and wrestle Sumo-style in Japan, all without leaving your chair!

Needless to say, all the events are presented to perfection, with excellent graphics, astounding sound and thoroughly absorbing gameplay. There's loads of variety in the game and it's bound to have your attention for ages. At this price, no-one who missed it the first time around can afford to neglect what must be one of the best value-for-money packages on the market for the C64.
