Summary

Berzerk-like; tough to play

The Good

Great graphics, a nice take on an arcade classic.

The Bad

Man, is it tough. When you play, it is almost impossible to wipe out all the enemy robots before 'Evil Otto' bounces into the room. I'm sure that the arcade game gave you more time than this version.

When I play, I only shoot the robots in my way as I make a beeline for the exit. Even then, I only make to make it maybe a third of the way through the game before dying.

The Bottom Line

If you like Berzerk you will probably enjoy this homebrew for the Odyssey 2.
