This was the first time I put my head into a Battlezone scope and played this game with twin sticks. The arcade in Santa Cruz had some real gems. It felt pretty good, although I still suck at Battlezone.
I just noticed, the arcade flyer is one of the earliest examples I have seen of the 'reflected horizon font' trope that became so popular in the 80s.
Got the score 28000 in MAME.
My first serious game of Battlezone, I encountered UFOs and seeker missiles. I realize now where some of the enemies from Novagen's Encounter and Backlash come from.
