    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Video Olympics was one of the nine original launch titles for the Atari 2600.

    The game contains a collection of variants of Atari's popular Pong arcade game featuring the following variant types:

    The game is played with the Atari paddle controller with up to 1 to 4 players. It was programmed by Joe Decuir, and later released by Sears for the Sears Video Arcade under the title Pong Sports. This title is also what is used in later compilations that the game appears in, due to either brand familiarity, or being unable to use the word "Olympics".

    The game is notable for containing one of the first examples of an Artificial Intelligence opponent in a video game by offering the player a single player "Robot Pong" mode which provided an artificial opposition for the player.
