On loading, you may select from 1-4 players. Type in your name and press RETURN. You may now select the country you wish to compete for by pressing SPACE to advance the choice icon followed by RETURN to select.
The first competitor to score three hits is the winner of the bout. You play against the computer by using the keys:
Z - Move left fencer up the play area, X - Move left fencer down the play area, : - Riposte, / - Parry. Press RETURN to lunge.
Use the Z and X keys alternately to build a steady rhythm. Depress the SPACE BAR and hold when you reach the white line. The angle at which you will jump will now increase until you release it, giving the angle of take-off for his hop, skip and jump.
Note: Crossing the white line causes a foul jump.
Move the "shotgun target" sight around the screen using:
Z - Left, X - Right, : - Up, / - Down
Place your sight over a moving skeet target and press RETURN. If a hit is achieved then the skeet will disintegrate.
In each of the three rounds, you have 24 skeet to hit. You may, however, not use all your allotted ammunition. Any left over are counted in the event of a tie.
Hit Z and X alternately to increase running speed. Pressing SPACE allows the man to jump hurdles when pressed at the correct time.
To begin your dive, press SPACE. The diver will automatically leap into the air.
Z - Speeds up anti-clockwise rotation, X - Speeds up clockwise rotation, : - Untuck, / - Goes into tuck position, RETURN - Pike
Pike can only be accomplished when not in a tuck position or moving to a tuck position. You must also be moving clockwise and be in the upper third of your rotation (1 o'clock to 5 o'clock if compared to a clock).
Scoring points depends on style, entry into water and complexity of dive.
All the events include a pause mode which is enable/disabled by pressing DELETE (On)/COPY(Off).
Tape: CHAIN"" (RETURN)
Tape users should rewind the tape to the Opening Ceremony when Event 5 has been completed. i.e. to the filename called "Open".
