Some of the various events of the World Games are mentioned below. Barrel Jumping: In this event, you are required to hop over the barrels. You can increase or decrease your speed and can hop with the shift key. Weight Lifting: You lift heavy weights in this event and the objects that are heavier can be pushed or pulled. Cliff Diving: You need to dive into the sea in this event. You have many stages or platforms at different heights from where you can jump in the sea. While diving, you cannot touch the water so you need to move quickly. Bull riding: This event involves riding the bull. This might be a challenging event so you need to be concentrated and therefore, you might need to reduce the speed of the computer.

Automated Simulations was co-founded by Jon Freeman and Jim Conelley. The company was more of a strategy game developer and publisher at the time, going by the Company motto "Computer Games Thinkers Play." Most of their products were developed for Computers, most importantly the Apple II computer. In 1981, the company was much larger and "office politics" drove Jon Freeman out of the company, and he left to found Free Fall Associates with his wife, Anne Westfall. It was at this time that Jim Conelley also left and started his own company, The Conelley Group which was more of a game developing company, and they let Epyx publish the games they developed.
