SUMMER GAMES II challenges your competitive skills with a
series of athletic contests for 1 to 8 players. Experience
the excitement and realism of eight different events --
cycling, equestrian, fencing, high jumps, javelin, kayaking,
rowing, and triple jump.
Practice each event first to sharpen your skills. Then
choose from the 18 countries you can represent in the
competition and let the Games begin!
Try to win the gold as you compete in each event. You'll get
a silver medal if you finish second and a bronze medal if you
come in third. Try to win the most medals as you compete in
all the events. SUMMER GAMES II keeps scores, handles the
judging, and awards medals to all of the winners.
If you break a "World Record", SUMMER GAMES II will save
your name and display it on a special World Records screen.
So get ready to give it your best. The thrills and excitement
of SUMMER GAMES II are about to begin.

A thousand athletes. A hundred countries. Billions watching
around the world as you enter the stadium, marching
confidently among your nation's strongest, fastest and
boldest young men and women. Your gaze sweeps the crowd as
you realize the scope of your achievement.
You are walking in
the footsteps of Jim Thorpe and Jesse Owens. In the footsteps
of the ancient Greeks. You are about to compete against the
world's best athletes in a 3,000-year-old competition. The
pinnacle of athletic achievement. The Summer Games.
The majesty, scope and glory of the original SUMMER GAMES
(TM) return in SUMMER GAMES II (TM). Now you can explore the
thrill of the world's greatest athletic competition with
eight brand new events. Challenge your timing in the triple
jump. Test your endurance in the equestrian arena.
From fencing to kayaking, you'll be at the heart of the action as
you "go for the gold." Strategy, skill and determination are
the qualities you'll need to succeed. Give your best in every
event. Nothing can be held back. Not if you want to be a
champion. Strive for victory -- if you win, the gold medal
will be yours. Break the world record, and your achievement
will be heralded as the greatest performance ever!
There's plenty of time for practice, but you'd better be
ready when the fanfare sounds the start of the opening
ceremonies, because this is world class competition. This is
SUMMER GAMES II.
