From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Video Olympics is a video game programmed by Atari, Inc.'s Joe Decuir for the Atari 2600. It is one of the nine original launch titles for that system when it was released in September 1977. The cartridge is a collection of games from Atari's popular arcade Pong series. A similar collection in arcade machine form called Tournament Table was published by Atari in 1978.
   The games are a collection of 'bat and ball' style games, including several previously released by Atari as coin-ops in the early 1970s. The games are played using the 2600s paddle controllers, and are for one to four players (three or four players requires a second set of paddle controllers).
   Video Olympics includes 50 games and variations. Some of the more notable games include:

  • Pong - The classic table tennis simulation.
  • Super Pong - A Pong variation where each player has two paddles.
  • Robot Pong - A solitaire Pong variation.
  • Pong Doubles
  • Quadrapong - A four-player, four-wall Pong variation.
  • Foozpong - Based on Foozball, this Pong variant has the players control a vertical three-paddle column.
  • Soccer
  • Handball - A Handball simulation.
  • Ice hockey
  • Hockey III - An Ice hockey simulation where players can catch and shoot the puck at the opposing goal.
  • Basketball - A Basketball simulation.
  • Volleyball - A Volleyball simulation where the traditional (Pong-style) left-right volley is swapped for a top-bottom volley. Players can volley or spike.
