How to play the real Battlezone 2000 mode?

Recommended Posts

The title says it all.

 

And no, I'm not talking about the cheat itself; I mean a gameplay explanation. While the original Battlezone is simple, the new version is quite complex, and the lack of documentation is a problem. I managed to pick up some items, others not... never could I complete a mission.

 

Is there any kind of manual out there?

 

Or can someone here give a good explanation?

Not sure which game we are talking about here? I've got the Battlezone 2000 grey lip cart, has there been another Battlezone release?

No, it's just that the real game is hidden.

 

The developers made a true "2000" game much like Tempest 2000, a complete reimagining of Battlezone. Very complex, 2000 levels, scaling and solid polygon enemies instead of vector graphics. Atari then deemed it too complex and had them make a straight port of the old Battlezone instead.

 

But the devs hid the "real" Battlezone 2000 as an Easter Egg, you can play it by using a cheat.

 

There's just no manual for it, and with the game being quite complex it's a steep learning curve

It's probably the only game ever made where the easter egg is bigger than the normal game.^^

Go to the tank select screen with the blinking red, press "Option 1" 3 times and then reset (Option 1+restart). It may take a couple of tries. :)

Yeah, but then again they could have just made both versions selectable at the start, and a manual would have helped with the complex version.^^
