Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

SWIMMING: If you and the computer tie for the same time, a frog will appear and award you a bonus.

SKEET SHOOTING: If you get a perfect score, a duck will fly across the screen. Shoot the duck repeatedly to get a bonus scores.

LONG HORSE: After launching, tap the RUN button to rotate. If you land on your head, an object will fall from above and award you a bonus. This will not qualify you for the event, so only do it after you have qualified.

ARCHERY: If you get all "nices" (bulls-eyes), the target will turn into an apple. Repeatedly hit the apple for bonus points.

TRIPLE JUMP: If your jump starts right on the line and the jumps have degrees of 35, 41, and 45 degrees (in order), then a rocket will fly past and award a bonus. This will not happen if the jump results in a World Record.

WEIGHTLIFTING: If you hit both run buttons simultaneously as the barbell hits the floor, cheerleaders will pop up and you will be awarded a bonus.

POLE VAULT: If your pole hits the base plate directly (without skidding) and you make it over, a gopher will pop up and award you points. Each successive perfect successful jump will award more points. A miss will reset the bonus back to the beginning.
