California Games II is a sports game released by Epyx for the Amiga, Atari ST, DOS, Sega Master System, and SNES in 1990 (DOS), 1992 (Amiga and Atari ST) and 1993 (consoles). This game is a sequel to California Games. An Atari Lynx version was also announced and previewed in several magazines but was never released.

The object of the game is to score as many points as possible by performing stunts and surviving the event. Each event has different play mechanics and physics as well.

The DOS version of the game makes comical references to death and even contains some animated gore. The SNES version was released in 1992 and in compliance with Nintendo's then censorship guidelines removed those elements of the game and also had modified cover art depicting the two beach girls in more modest swimwear.
