In episode 14 of the MovieMuse podcast the team review Konami’s Olympic themed multi-sport game Hyper Sports. You can see our scores here and check out the video below for the team’s detailed appraisal of the arcade original, as well as the  various home computer ports of the game that in Japan featured an official licence from the 1984 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

  • Simon - HIGHSCORE: none entered
  • Gordon - HIGHSCORE: 38300 (WINNER)
  • Mat - HIGHSCORE: 37760


Whilst Hyper Sports lacks the multiplayer levels of Track and Field, it expands on a winning formula to bring us a fantastic collection of lesser seen events and a very different take on the usual Olympiad.

Listen to the team’s thoughts…
