Description of California Games

Epyx' breakthrough game is one of the most fun and timeless games ever made. Everything a sports fan could ever want is here: refreshingly unique concept, outstanding graphics, intuitive interface, and amazing variety of moves, tricks, and secrets to discover.

Sports include Half Pipe, Surfing, Foot bag, Skating, BMX, and Flying Disk. Playing California Games is enough to make even the most jaded couch potato want to put on a pair of rollerblades and hit the beach-- it is that good :)

Simply one of the most addictive games ever made. Surf's up!

How to play California Games

Run in DOSBox with "AUTORUN.BAT" or use the command loadfix calgames.exe . If the keyboard does not work when entering a name, then specify machine = tandy in dosbox.conf.

In EGA / VGA and MCGA / VGA mode, name input works only in DOSBox 0.63 and below.

Before the X-Games was a thing in the real world we had California Games on the C64.

I prefer the Amiga-Version of most Games if it's made before 1992. ;)

if you have "not enough memory" problems, try using the "loadfix" command.
loadfix calgames.exe
