Game 10: Berzerk


From top 100

No current high score for this game



In each and every maze, the humanoid must destroy all robots using his laser gun without touching the deadly walls, colliding with a robot, or getting hit by any of the lasers fired by the robots.
After the humanoid has destroyed all the robots, he must escape through one of open doorways before Evil Otto appears. If Evil Otto appears when there are still robots, he will bounce very slowly. But after all the robots are destroyed, Evil Otto will be bouncing even faster. The humanoid must escaped before Evil Otto gets him or he is done for because Evil Otto cannot be killed.

Although the robots are supposed to be destroyed by the humanoid with his laser gun, the robots are not very smart and can also be destroyed whenever they run into each other, touch the deadly walls, get hit by their own lasers or get run over by Evil Otto. But no matter how they are destroyed, the player gets the credit and scores points.

A bonus score is given if all the robots in the maze are destroyed. But if there any robots are left in the maze when the humanoid escapes through one of the open doorways, no bonus will be given.

The game has a voice synthesizer that speaks for all the actions in the game. For example, it says "Chicken! Fight like a robot!" if the humanoid exits the maze before all robots are destroyed, "Intruder Alert! Intruder Alert!" whenever Evil Otto appears, and "The humanoid must not escape" when the humanoid exits the maze after all robots are destroyed.

The game has 64,000 different mazes, each with a level of difficulty that constantly increases.

Wow, what a great game. A classic example of why graphics mean nothing and gameplay is everything! The awesome sound must have blown people away in 1980.

Cannot break 10k though, the white 'bots bullets are too fast.

Mine doesn't have any sound :( I'll have to download a new rom and see how it goes. But then I'll lose my huge high score of 3300 :lol

Sadly berzerk1.zip is no easier than berzerk.zip and also has no sound :cry

But anyway here is my best *cough* LOSER! *cough*

OK guys any tricks to getting close to 10K? I notice when I play worse up until my last man I seem to get more "red robot" levels before the blue guys appear. Other than I got nuthin for tips and/or tricks.

Damn addictive though. If I played it back in the day it would have eaten up 20s :)

Edit: I really must stop sponging hints and tips off DKong :redface

The only tips I can offer is my own, I always try to make the right hand side exit ( this will give you a left hand side start, so much easier than from the top or bottom) I always fire straight ahead first shot and usually hit a Robot or if its a wall I will run to it. The wall willl stop diagonal shots from the robots and they suck.

Once you hit 5000 points Eddie (Is that the balls name) will speed up but will only go really fast if you have cleared all robots, after 5000 points keep a robot or two going and head for the right wall, Eddie will kill the robots on the way past and you get the same points and bonus's.

I don't like the diagonal shot and will line my robots up from the wall and knock em off

You may need the sound roms for berzerk(put them in your MAME folder sound file)

Now to crack the elusive 10,000
