Looking for a sport "absurd" games... [Solved]

Post by akira1977 » August 15th, 2017, 3:12 pm

HI everybody,

I'm looking for a game that exit in late '90 ( 1997/1998 probably!!!)

It's a sort of sport game, but with absurd task:

In one level, you have to "intercept" giant missile comings towards you, and launch back.

In another task, you have to run and crush ice blocks that are like obstacle.

The control has 3 buttons: with the lateral ones, you makes power, the center one, is used for hit/crush/actions...

The graphics is like Neo-Geo fight games, a sort of cartoons, and funny animations...

I see this game only once, near my house, in the playroom, and the cabinet, was a little more big respect the usual...

I know that it's difficult, because I didn't see it in any other place!!!

A big thanks to all the members of the forum!!! :wink:

That sounds a lot like the game "Numan Athletics" by Namco from 1993...

Thank you very much!!! :woot: :thumbsup:

The game was Numan Athletics 2, distributed only in Japan, so it's very strange that there was this copy in Italy... :smile:

However it's very difficult to play with gamepad, maybe I will connect a keyboard! :tongue:

Thanks again!!! :wink:
