From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Hyper Sports, known in Japan as Hyper Olympic '84 is an arcade game published in 1984 by Konami. It is the sequel to 1983's Track & Field and features seven new Olympic events. Like its predecessor, Hyper Sports has two run buttons and one action button per player. The Japanese release of the game sported an official license for the 1984 Summer Olympics.
   The gameplay is much the same as Track & Field in that the player competes in an event and tries to score the most points based on performance criteria, and also by beating the computer entrants in that event. Also, the player tries to exceed a qualification time, distance, or score to advance to the next event. In Hyper Sports, if all of the events are passed successfully, the player advances to the next round of the same events which are faster and harder to qualify for.
   The events changed to include these new sports:

  • Swimming - Swimming speed is controlled by two run buttons, and breathing is controlled by the action button when prompted by swimmer on screen. There is one re-do if a player fouls due to launching before the gun, but only one 'run' at the qualifying time.
  • Skeet shooting - Selecting left or right shot via the two run buttons while a clay-bird is in the sight. There are three rounds to attempt to pass the qualifying score. If a perfect score is attained then a different pattern follows allowing for a higher score.
  • Long horse - Speed to run at horse is computer controlled, player jumps and pushes off horse via the action button, and rotates as many times as possible via run buttons (and tries to land straight up on feet). There are three attempts at the qualifying score.
  • Archery - Firing of the arrow controlled by action button; the elevation angle is controlled by depressing the action button and releasing at the proper time. There are three attempts at passing the qualifying score.
  • Triple jump - Speed is controlled by the run buttons, jump and angle are controlled by action button. There are three attempts at the qualifying distance, and player fouls if first jump is after the white line.
  • Weight lifting - Power used to lift weights is controlled by run buttons, while shift of weight from lifting up to pushing above the head is controlled by action button. There are two attempts at the qualifying weight.
  • Pole vault - Speed to run is preset by computer, while release of pole and body movement is controlled by the action button. Player continues attempting the increasing heights until he/she fouls out (by missing base at the bottom or by knocking off horizontal bar with body at the top). The third foul disqualifies the player. (This event did not feature on the ZX Spectrum version.)
   Despite debuting in the arcade with seven events (as Hyper Olympic '84 in Japan), Hyper Sports on the MSX is only tangentially related to the original game, dropping six of the events and inventing three new ones, leading to a combined total of four:
  • Diving
  • Long Horse
  • Trampoline
  • Horizontal Bar
   The SG-1000 port derives from this version of the game - all other home conversions of Hyper Sports attempt to mimic the arcade version in full. MSX owners however would receive the missing events in the forms of Hyper Sports 2 (1984) and Hyper Sports 3 (1985), neither of which were officially released on a Sega console.

Videogame Console:

This ver­sion of Hyper Sports was de­sig­ned for the Se­ga SG-1000, which was first 8-bit Se­ga vi­deo ga­me con­so­le ma­nu­fac­tu­red in the years 1983 - 1985. It was laun­ched on the sa­me day as much mo­re suc­ces­s­ful NES con­so­le and with ex­cep­ti­ons, it was sold on­ly in Ja­pan. The u­nit pri­ce of SG-1000 was 15,000 yen, the sa­me pri­ce as for NES. Con­so­le was not very suc­ces­s­ful and af­ter 2 years was with­drawn from the mar­ket. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about Se­ga SG-1000 can be found here.
