From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   California Games II is a sports game released by Epyx for the Amiga, DOS, Sega Master System, and SNES in 1993. This game is a sequel to California Games.
   The five sports events consisted of:

  • Hang gliding
  • Jet ski
  • Snowboarding
  • Bodysurfing
  • Skateboarding
   The object of the game was to score as many points as possible by performing stunts and surviving the event. Each event had different play mechanics and physics as well. The DOS version of the game made comical references to death and even contained some animated gore.

Platform:

This ver­sion of California Games II was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
