Purple Saturn Day is a space-themed Olympic sports game. It was created in 1989 by ERE Informatique and published by Epyx Inc.

Summary[edit]

The game features four non-existent sci-fi themed Olympic games, in the vein of Epyx "games" like Summer Games (1984). The four events are Ring Chase, Tronic Slider, Brain Bowler, and Time Jump. The events can be practiced on their own, or played one after in tournament mode, where if the player wins they get to see the queen of the tournament do a short dance around a pole.

ST/Amiga Format magazine gave the game high praise, awarding it a review score of 98%, and included a demo of the game on the magazine's coverdisk.[1]
