Konami'88 is an Olympic sporting event game that tests
the button bashing skills of the player to compete successfully in eight events
: 100 meter dash, long jump, 400 meters relay, 110 meters hurdles ,skeet
shooting and javelin throwing.
The Graphics have been much improved
over the older Track and Field or Hyper Sports games, Konami’s
designers have paid some attention to details in the presentation that enhance
the overall gaming experience. For example, while competing in the 100 meter
dash, other athletes can be seen performing warm up exercises in the background.
The long jump switches from a side view of the athlete to a perspective view
when jumping to create the illusion he is jumping towards the camera. A further
example of effective graphics details is the presence of advertisements for
other Konami games.
The Game features digitized speech, Male and female
voices introduce events.
