The original ''Track & Field'' arcade game released in 1983 (known as ''Hyper Olympic'' in Japan). It and its close sequel ''Hyper Sports'' were notable for their lack of directional controls; each player[[note]](up to 4 could play, but only 2 simultaneously)[[/note]] had three buttons, two for running and one for jumping/throwing. Since the {{Atari 2600}} joystick only came with a single button, the 2600 version of ''Track & Field'' was bundled with a special three-button controller. However, the Hyper Shot controller reduced the number of buttons it took to play the MSX and NES versions of ''Track & Field'' and ''Hyper Sports'' to two.

* {{Mondegreen}}: After completing the pole vault in ''T&F2'', it sounds like the announcer is saying "flower pot" instead of "qualify".
