A tribute to my favourite c64 game of all time – Summer Games by Epyx!
As a kid growing up in the 80’s, the commodore 64 was my first and favourite video game system – I will always remember some of the GREAT games on that system.
Text from back of the game box:
You’re an Olympic athlete competing in eight key events at the SUMMER GAMES. How well can you score in track, swimming, diving, shooting, gymnastics and more? So realistic, there’s even an opening ceremony and awards presentation after each event.
Unluck other ‘Olympic-Like’ games, SUMMER GAMES has incredible realism, superb state-of-the-art graphics and sound effects, including nation anthems from eighteen countries, and true action-strategy game play. In each event you must plan and execute your game strategy in order to maximize your score. It’s not just a matter of how fast you can move the joystick.
So change into your running shoes, grab your joystick and GO FOR THE GOLD!
