Sure, there may have been an Olympics this year – and the accompanying videogame too – but they were all rather tame weren’t they? I mean, at least in comparison with running a race whilst being chased by a dinosaur! Because that is actually a thing you can do in Crazy Athletics – Summer Sports and Games, releasing today on Xbox, PlayStation and Steam.
How crazy is crazy though? It is a bold statement if nothing else, but we can see just how mental Crazy Athletics will be thanks to a trailer. Check it out below:
Anyone else amazed at how much distance he got with that javelin throw?!
Crazy Athletics plays a little bit like a rhythm action game as you time your button inputs with what is shown on screen. Press them as close to the target as possible and keep your speed and momentum going.
There will be ten events in total including running, swimming, shot put, long jump and more. These will be played all over the world as you take in the sights of ten different locations and a total of 80 events altogether. Compete in local multiplayer or post your times to online leaderboards and compete for those gold medals.
Crazy Athletics is targeting 120FPS for those with a compatible monitor and Xbox Series X but will reach 60FPS on last generation consoles too. Turn those TVs up too as you select from over 100 indie songs, all loaded into an old school looking iPod!
Crazy Athletics – Summer Sports and Games is available to download now priced at £16.74. Stay tuned as we have a review coming soon where hopefully we can brag about all those gold medals we’ve won.
