Criticism:
I remember well my poor speccy's keyboard got a battering trying to built up the speed for the events. A joystick could be used, but you'd seriously need to service it every 30 games!

Nevertheless, this is a good game with nicely animated figures. The events are similar and all rely on the same principle - run as hard as possible and jump/launch at the right angle. If Sir Clive were to have witnessed the abuse that those poor speccys got during the 80's due to Daley Thompson's Decathlon (not to mention Daley Thompson's Super Test!), he'd probably have retired early in disgust!
