Here’s a Berzerk Arcade game for sale. Humanoid player runs through maze-like rooms, destroying robots while avoiding their fire. The indestructable Evil Otto is the game’s timer, forcing the player to move on. One of the first talking games, remember “Get the Humanoid!”?
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.
