Hyper Sports (コナミのハイパースポーツ) is a sports game developed by Konami and released for the SG-1000 in 1985 (following a 1984 MSX launch). The game has the player compete through a number of olympic events.
Despite debuting in the arcade with seven events (as Hyper Olympic '84 in Japan), Hyper Sports on the MSX is only tangentially related to the original game, dropping six of the events and inventing three new ones, leading to a combined total of four:
- Long Horse
- Horizontal Bar
The SG-1000 port derives from this version of the game - all other home conversions of Hyper Sports attempt to mimic the arcade version in full. MSX owners however would receive the missing events in the forms of Hyper Sports 2 (1984) and Hyper Sports 3 (1985), neither of which were officially released on a Sega console.
