Indoor Sports is a computer game developed by DesignStar's SportTime and first published in the US by Mindscape in 1987 for the Commodore 64. It was converted to many other platforms, particularly in Europe where it was published by Databyte, Advance Software and Tynesoft (depending on platform).

Gameplay[edit]

This game simulates bowling, darts, ping-pong and air hockey.[1] The C16/Plus/4 version only has the first 3 events.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World called the bowling game of Indoor Sports "quite difficult and badly executed" but said that the other games were much better, with darts being the best.[2] The game was reviewed in 1988 in Dragon #133 by Hartley, Patricia, and Kirk Lesser in "The Role of Computers" column. The reviewers gave the game 2 out of 5 stars.[1]
