California Games

This is it! The sun, the sand, the surf, everything you need for a truly atmospheric collection of classic California sports all wrapped up on one excellent cassette.

Take your pick from surfing, skateboarding, roller-skating, BMX biking, Flying disk and Foot Bag and go for the high scores every time.

OK, most of the sports listed above will be known to you already. but some of you may well ask what on Earth Foot Bag and Flying disk are all about. Well Flying disk is a fancy term for Frisbee throwing and Foot Bag, hmm, basically you just throw a bag in the air and try and keep it up there as long as possible by kicking and head-butting it.

Well, we all knew Americans could be weird, but never mind. The graphics and sound effects are superb, combining to give a real feel for the West Coast and the action is both varied and dynamic, making the games one of the best buys you can get on a budget label.
