100 Meter Dash for the Commodore 64 simulates a track race between two contestants. Two human players, using the same keyboard for control, race against each other on a track consisting of two lanes shown in 2D perspective, one above the other, though not a split screen.
The runners move left to right across the screen and the track scroll toward the left edge giving the illusion of running. As the runner races down the track, each ten meter block is marked by a line labeled 10, 20, 30 and so forth. Each player's time is individually recorded in minutes and seconds and the player whose runner reaches the 100-meter marker first is the winner.
The simple control system requires each player to repeatedly press two buttons on the keyboard as quickly as possible, with two adjacent buttons assigned to each. The faster the rhythm a player can build up with the key presses, the faster the sprinter will move across the screen.
100 Meter Dash does not feature solo play against the computer and requires two humans for competitive gameplay. In single player mode, only the top runner will race while the other remains at the starting line. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
