Berzerk in Hi Res

I've finally got a version of Berzerk is pseudo hi Res. I think it plays pretty good and has a lot of options for a ZX81 game. There is even a little Easter egg in there somewhere which I'm sure somebody will find soon enough.

Does anybody else know of a Hi Res game that supports Chroma? Perhaps this is a first for Bukster Games

Here's a link to a YouTube video I made of it. This is a test version. Please let me know if you find any bugs or have any ideas for improvement.

Congratulations, this is amazing!

I really have to test this on my ZX81 machine!

I just missed the mobility of the enemy robots, but given the resources available this is already a great achievement!

I've had a few requests to make the robots move. Here is an updated version with robot movement. Only two robots at a time move. I had to cut back a few game frills to fit this in. There is still the mini game on the title screen. I didn't want to lose that.

After some suggestions and bug fixes here is the final version of Hi-Res Berzxerk. This features robot movement and a number of bug fixes. Only two robots move at a time to keep the game play fast and keep the challenge up. If they all move, it's more like robotron. Shoot one moving robot and another will start moving.

Be sure to try the mini game on the title screen. It's just a joke, but a little fun to have before you play the game. Push the game buttons and you'll find that the fire button does work. How many ZX81 games have all this and a mini game?
