I played hundreds of C64 games in my youth, & Summer Games 2 is one of the finest C64 games ever. I remember magazine ZZap64 raving over it, giving it 97% overall!!!

I loved all the Epyx "Games" titles. While Winter Games is still my all-time favorite, Summer Games II was a terrific title. Man this game brings back memories.
