World Games continued the successful Games Series from Epyx.

Again ported by WestWood and IT, the IIGS version of World Games maintained the visual and audio excellence standard set by Winter Games.

The events this time comprise unique sports found all over the world: Weight Lifting, Cliff Diving, Barrel Jumping, Bull Riding, Log Rolling, Slalom Skiing, Caber Toss and Sumo Wrestling. As before, controls are keypad and/or arrow keys with open apple, option or space being the fire button. Joystick can also be used, and does make life easier for two player events such as Log Rolling and Sumo.

Again, many wasted hours with my friends playing this one.
