Winter Olympics: Lillehammer '94

An Olympics sports game developed to coincide with the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, featuring ten different Olympic events.


Winter Olympics: Lillehammer '94 (sometimes Winter Olympic Games: Lillehammer '94, or simply Winter Olympics) is an Olympics sports simulator released for multiple home systems simultaneously in February 1994. It was produced to coincide with the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.

Winter Olympics features ten different events from the Winter Olympics: Slalom, Giant Slalom, Downhill Skiing, Super G Skiing, Bobsleigh, Luge, Freestyle Moguls, Ski Jump, Biathlon and Speed Skating Short Track. Each event also includes the name of the location used for the event in Lillehammer. The player can train individually with the events, play a "mini-Olympics" that covers a handful of the events or go for the "Full Olympics" with all ten events.

Tiertex used different programmers for each of the console versions, producing many minor differences between every version. For instance, the Freestyle Moguls is far more demanding on the SNES version than it is on the Genesis version.
