    Hyper Sports
    NES 1985
    Version:        1.0
    Controls vary from event to event. Check the individual sections for how to
    compete in them. On the main menu you can switch the controls around if you
    prefer, I will use the 'A' selection as default action button in the
    SELECT - Cycle through the menu
    START  - Un-/Pause the game.
    The game uses the 'Hyper Shot' peripheral to run in the Triple and High jump
    The overall score is recorded after each event. The performance as well as
    bonus points is mainly used for setting a personal best or comparing with the
    second player.
    There are four events to compete in, and you have to do them in the order the
    game gives you. If you qualify in one event you will progress to the next
    event. When you are done with each of them, the cycle restarts with a higher
    qualification target.
    Skeet Shooting:
    World Record: 4300 pts
    Qualify:      2400 pts
                  2800 pts
                  3000 pts
                  3200 pts
                  3400 pts
                  3600 pts
                  3800 pts
                  4000 pts
                  4200 pts
                  4400 pts
    There are two squares on screen which automatically target the disk flying in
    its vertical line. Shoot with the a or b button for the left and right square
    respectively. With each two discs the target will increase in size. The more
    successive hits you get the faster the disks fly in. This means there will be
    more targets in the 15 seconds but also more skill required to shoot them.
    Be careful not to mistake your rifle with a machine gun. If you miss you need
    to 'reload' first, which means it will take a while you can shoot again for a
    The game start with a whole bunch of white disks coming from the left and
    right, they are worth 100 points each. The blue disk is worth 500 and red 1000.
    Getting those is a big step towards making the cut.
    If you manage to shoot each single disk then a flying saucer will appear from
    the right. Let it go by the right target and shoot it in the left target for
    3000 points. A crow will fly in which can be shot with both targets for 5000
    points each. This means the world record should be slightly above 18,000
    Triple Jump:
    World Record: 17m89
    Qualify:      13m00
    Start off by running really fast, bashing the Hyper Shot button. When the line
    approaches, jump off with the A button. The best angle seems to be around 45
    degrees. When you are about to land on the track, press the A button again for
    another ~45 degree jump. After the third jump you will land in the sand box,
    hopefully with a good enough jump to qualify. All depends on your speed, spot
    where you took off and jump angles.
    Should the last three digits on the distance be the same digit, you get an
    extra 3000 bonus points.
    This is most likely the first event you will get stuck when cycling through the
    game. 18m is already quite hard to achieve, my best is just over 18m59.
    World Record: 3500 pts
    Qualify:      2500 pts
                  2700 pts
                  2800 pts
                  2900 pts
                  3000 pts
                  3100 pts
                  3200 pts
                  3300 pts
                  3400 pts
    At the start you need to set the wind conditions. This will alter the
    horizontal direction of the arrow. If there is no wind, you should shoot when
    the white center ring is on the same horizontal line than the bottom of the
    target picture in the top right corner. If you look at what I mean you will
    notice and get used to this quite quickly. However, the target may also come
    from the bottom at which point you need to shoot after the center is above the
    score box.
    The longer you hold down the shoot button the higher you will target. Look at
    the target angle above your athlete. The perfect angle is 5.00 degrees.
    You have eight shots to get a high score. The most outer ring on the target is
    worth 10 points, whereas the bull's eye is worth 600 plus a "Nice" message.
    If you get a bull's eye then sometimes a bunny with an apple on its head will
    floats down, hit the apple for 1000 points and three extra arrows. The bunny
    does not appear on the extra arrows as far as I know. With the bonus points in
    mind, the world record is around 8,200 points.
    High Jump:
    World Record: 2m36
    Qualify:      2m26
    Start running as before, then jump close to the bar. Perhaps shortly after the
    'a' of the nearby Konami banner in the background. Jump up and press the action
    button to arch the back at the highest point with a 65 degrees angle. Then one
    more time to lift the legs so you don't take the bar down with you on the other
    If you successfully jump all three attempts a superhero will come and give you
    3000 bonus points.
    The jumping gets a little harder after a while, I would say the best world
    record is around 2m44 or slightly higher.
