Brian Jacks' Superstar Challenge
By Ricochet

Published in A&B Computing 4.11

Regular readers will know my feelings about sports simulations and this one does nothing to change my mind! Apart from the constant worry about keyboard bashing (poor old Z and X keys!), there is a certain mental inertia about games where success largely depends on how fast you can co-ordinate keyboard bashing!

This one stands out from the pack only in terms of the range of events - arm dips, squat thrusts, canoeing, cycling, football, swimming, archery and 100 metres.

Originally released by Martech back in 1985. Good value, machine code, lots of fun, just not for me.
