Track & Field (Arcade)
|Track & Field|
Welcome to the 1983 Button-Smashing Games! Track & Field features 6 playable games, up to 4 players, and up to 3 smashable buttons.
|A fairly standard spacecraft that could have been used in one of the game's many easter eggs.|
|These hearts would appear on the Commendation screen when the woman's planting smooches on the champion.|
In the Javelin game, if the player throws the javelin at an 80 degree angle, the javelin will hit some kind of animal that falls down dead. The game uses some kind of nebulous white alien thing as the target, but a more realistic bird is in the ROM. This was likely changed because killing a real bird with a javelin is a bit much.
Three distinct versions exist: The Japanese Hyper Olympic, the World version, and the USA version distributed by Centuri.
The mountains on the title screen in Hyper Olympic were touched up in Track & Field.
The line between the scoreboard and the stadium was changed from pink to blue.
"PlayerXP" was changed to "Player X", because "Player 1 Player" is redundant.
In the High Jump event, the incorrect "Hight" was fixed in all other versions.
The Centuri game changes the initial qualifying times and distances to make the game more difficult. This applies to all games but the High Jump.
Changed qualifiers are in bold.
