72,000. One thing I've always found about Battlezone is sometimes it's easy and other times as hard as hell. Awesome game either way -- a lifelong favourite.

Game 1

Score: 48000

Difficulty: B/B 

 

I had this game as a kid. It's graphics were very good for the time. I don't know what my best score as a kid was. I need to get better at avoiding enemy shots. We'll see...

I thought this was a cool game BITD, but I didn't play it very much since I didn't feel like there was much of a chance to improve so I got bored.  Still I'm actually surprised I didn't play it more.  It's better than I remembered although it doesn't do justice to the title.

So what is the explosion routine we see exactly? Are we seeing "into" the game like Yars' Revenge safe zone?

I'm usually not in a position to offer tips, but I've been playing this game for a long, long time. I find a good method is to roll your tank bankwards continuously. When you see two enemies on your radar, center yourself so they are on either side of you and there are no tanks directly behind you that can shoot you in the back. When you're in a position where you're facing a tank head-on, move backwards and to the left out of their line of fire. This way, when the enemy tank shoots, the shot will look like it's rolling off to the side from your perspective. You can then go in for the kill because the enemy tank takes a few seconds before it can fire again.

If you have a chance, check out Thomas Jentzsch's twin joystick Battlezone hack! It really helps get it closer to the arcade feel.

Vocelli:

 

Game 1:  252,000

When the yellow tanks show up....I keep the enemy tanks at 11 o'clock and 2 o'clock and go in reverse. When I hear the enemy shoot.... I keep going backwards until the bullet passes in front of me...then I turn and shoot back.

 

 

Bonus: 44,000
