Commodore 64 - Homebrew - February 13, 2022

Your goal is to clear each screen of robots and then leave via one of the exits, avoiding the electrified walls. Doing so will earn you a bonus, but leaving a screen before all the robots are killed will cause you to be labelled a chicken and forfeit any bonus. As your score increases, the robots' speed and number of bullets they can fire simultaneously will also increase, indicated by their changing colour. In later levels the robots can fire at twice the speed and therefore become extremely deadly. Take too long to clear a screen and 'Evil Otto' will appear, bouncing towards you. He...

Game description: Cave In is an "eat'em" game in which you play a mole. The goal is to eat yummy (at least for the mole, which for whatever reason looks like a piranha) food in each screen while avoiding other animals (which look like a monster).

Frenzy is the sequel to Berzerk and gameplay is similar. You are chased around a maze of rooms by various robots and your player must avoid their lasers and shoot them back to destroy them.

Frenzy

Arcade - Released - January 1, 1982

Frenzy followed the basic paradigm set by Berzerk: the player must navigate a maze full of hostile robots. The goal of the game is to survive as long as possible and score points by killing robots and travelling from room to room. The game has no end other than the player losing all of his or her lives. The player has a gun with which to shoot the robots, and simple intelligence of the robots means that they can often be tricked into shooting one another.

Robot Attack

Robot Attack

Tandy TRS-80 - Released - 1981

Robot Attack was based on the arcade game Berzerk, which was released by Stern Electronics in 1980. The game concept itself is older than that, and can be found in any number of BASIC games, such as Chase, Robots, and Daleks. Robot Attack was notable as the first talking game released by Big Five Software. The game supports the TRISSTICK and Alpha Joystick, but not the original STICK-80 (unless you perform a hardware modification to it). In my opinion, it makes the best use of the joystick of any TRS‑80 game. One of the most distinguishing features of Robot Attack is the voice, which is...

Twilight Zone

Twilight Zone

Commodore 64 - Released - 1985

Technically this is a multi-scrolling shooter, but shooting takes a big backseat to making sure you don't touch any of the walls or outcroppings or they will zap you Berzerk-style, Guiding around these obstacles is the greater part of the challenge. The game plays more like an avoid-it game than a shooter in that respect.
