Battlezone 2000 - Tips, Cheats, and Easter Eggs

Hidden Game
Instructions for Battlezone 2000 Easter Egg

When you're on the tank configuration screen (the one with the red
flashing bars), press OPTION1 three times and then press restart. This
2000 was a very deep, large game but Atari testers thought it too hard. So
we were going to throw away the whole solid 3D section. Instead, we've
hidden it. This must be one of the biggest easter eggs in history.

This is best done right when turning the unit on... if it didn't work,
turn it off and try again.  Starting multi-player is NOT easy to acheive
in this mode.

Start Screen:
show map of world -- 50 x 40 = 2000 levels
map coordinates displayed below map

Slso Shown:

	terrain type
	tanks to destroy
	fuel canisters
	other canisters
	radiation level
