The objective of the game is to compete in a Pole Vaulting event at the Olympics, starting at a height of 4.1 meters, and with the height gradually increasing as you successfully clear each stage. The event has eight competitors from different countries, and you must work your way up the leader board, your game character is Dana Cervantes, the athlete who competed for Spain at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. The game is all about timing, you need to place your pole at the correct distance, choose the appropriate angle (45 degrees is the optimum), and maneuver when the pole is vertical.

Nazca Pertiga 2004 was developed with Fenix for the GP32 by Pablo Cervantes (aka Nazca), the game was initially included in the 2004 Dreamcast mini-compilation Nazca Pack (the controls for the game were not fully mapped to Dreamcast, the game would run but could not be played fully).

This release comprises of Nazca Pertiga 2004 along with DCEvolution's version of Chui's Fenix SDL Loader (FSL) from November 2004, edited to exclude the Fenix splash screen and jingle, so the game loads directly.

The controls for the game have been reconfigured to enable all game options, to be user friendly with the Dreamcast controller, and to avoid inadvertently resetting the Dreamcast during play. The text within the game has been translated to English, however, graphic files containing text have not been modified. The instructions option has been deleted from the menu in order to save some memory resource usage, and the WAV sound effects have been balanced for volume. Due to the alterations for this release, a download for the original GP32 version has been made available.

Note: The game seems to use a lot of the limited Dreamcast resources, it will most likely crash after approximately 10 consecutive plays.
