From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Winter Games is a sports video game developed by Epyx (and released in Europe by U.S. Gold), based on sports featured in the Winter Olympic Games. A snow-and-ice themed follow-up to the highly successful Summer Games, Winter Games was released in 1985 for the Commodore 64 and later ported to several popular home computers and video game consoles of the 1980s. The game was presented as a virtual multi-sport carnival called the 'Epyx Winter Games' (there was no official IOC licensing in place) with up to 8 players each choosing a country to represent, and then taking turns competing in various events to try for a medal.
   The events available vary slightly depending on the platform, but include some or all of the following:

  • Alpine skiing
  • Ski jumping
  • Biathlon
  • Bobsled
  • Figure skating
  • Speed skating
  • Luge
  • Freestyle skiing; more precisely, the aerial skiing discipline, called 'Hot Dog Aerials' in the game
The game allowed you to compete in all of the events sequentially, choose a few events, choose just one event, or practice an event.

More details about this game can be found on Wikipedia.org.
