Some playing with the “missile at 30K dip + 2 extra tanks”. I’m not a great player as some people have been able to score millions… but at least this should give you the idea of the advanced BattleZone gameplay. And what a great classic it is!

  1. Yes I had a 2 million plus score…Then the machine broke down and it was replaced by a Bezzerker….I cried…

  2. I used to play this on the big arcade machine. 25 cents.

  3. I learned the guided missiles were easier to hit if you started moving backwards and kept moving backwards as they approached. Most of them would zero in on you while still in front, and head straight for you, giving you a chance to hit them before they impacted.

  4. Without this you would never of had Star Wars. Clear lineage

  5. Also Red Baron, one old arcade game you could sit in, what´s that called in English, but it was one of the bigger ones. Blue vector graphics like this and that one was rather rare, i just remember seeing it once. WW 1 planes which came in a squadron of three in the distance and were there blimps as well, maybe.
    Just a suggestion for a clip if it´s to be found and nostalgia.

  6. This one was flat out fascinating when it came out, vectografics, vector, so vector graphics spell checker, i try to please it since it just wants what´s good enough.
    Sixties up until the end of the eighties and then all fun was gone, someone took it.
    I bet the… OK now i start to talk too much again. I never stop when i start, i have to force myself. Good day

  7. Friday night in the chip shop after Scouts, spending precious pocket money on a few games. I still think the graphics are astoundingly smooth resolution for the time.

  8. I never lasted much longer after the supertanks showed up

  9. The missiles… Their BOOOOOM sound and tricky maneuver always make me nervous and I can't beat them…

  10. MY UNCLE HAD THIS GAME ROOM WHEN I WAS A KID,HE WORKED FOR ATT SO MADE GOOD MONEY. I NEVER SEEN ANYONE AS GOOD AS YOU,GRATS PRO!

  11. It's fascinating how this preceded Battlezone 1998 and Battlezone 2: Combat Commander.

  12. I remember playing this one a lot as a kid!

  13. Electric Corral Lakewood Mall. Lakewood Ca. 1981

  14. is this the first 3d polygons game?

  15. Amazing quality for 1980. And many versions had a periscope interface where you pressed your face against a scope. This had the effect of eliminating the real world from your vision and was very immersive.

  16. If I remember right this had a periscope like bit on the game

  17. Wow, it would take id Software twelve years to make a first person shooter that would change the game even more than this game. Yes, Elite, Wing Commander, and the first ever Mobile Suit Gundam game were all good, but Wolfenstein 3d changed the game of first person shooters more than those franchises ever did, and only Battlezone is considered as an equal in the terms of innovative titles, for, without it, the entire first person shooter genre would not exist at all in modern times.

  18. Even after decades, that ending music rings in my ears. That, plus the buzz bombs.
