Winter Olympics Pyeongchang

Post by b_b_c_m_i_c_r_o_2 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 8:20 am

With the winter olympics just about to start what is a good winter olympics game for the bbc/electron?

I am thinking WInter Olympics from Tynesoft? (Which I purchased on cassette when it first came out back in the day) - Maybe I need to dust that off.

There's also Winter Olympiad 88 from Tynesoft, think that's about it.

The demos I found on youtube:

BBC Micro game Ski Slalom
BBC Micro Winter Olympics
BBC Micro Winter Olympiad '88

Bob Sleigh looks the most engaging - I always wondered if the bob sleigh route is the same shape for each winter olympics.
