Description of Battlezone

An excellent and critically acclaimed remake on the original Battlezone game for DOS, published in 1983. Now available in a remastered version : Battlezone 98 Redux, available on GoG and Steam.

From the manual:

Let them have their ticker tape parades, their "space races", and their commemorative packets of dehydrated ice cream. While Von Braun takes credit for his Redstone bottle rockets, I am finalizing plans for an inter-planetary fleet that could plant an American flag on every rock and pebble in this solar system by the end of the next decade. I will be watching the sunrise from atop the Olympus Mons long before NASA takes their first steps on the moon.
Dr. Wilhelm Arkin's response to the offer of a position at NASA

Check out for more infos on the Installer of the game. Also, you can get tons of downloadable extras, mods and more on BZ Scrap.

Don't forget the official expansion pack released by Activision : The Red Odyssey.

A sequel was also published one year later : BattleZone II: Combat Commander.

The Redux is very nice but the nostalgia is hurt by the very nice changes, please upload the original installers that were made available as freeware before redux came out

If you'd like to see Battlezone 1.5 get updates, contact Rebellion and ask for it to be open sourced or a low cost license.

windows games are much easier to install and play than DOS games.
some games expect you to have the cdrom game in the drive and some
others want you to mount something and there seems to be no shortage
of headaches getting DOS games working.

this was a game I lost many many hours to long ago ,i will have to see if there
are any good mods for this on that BZSCRAP site, it would be great if I could find
a skirmish basebattling mod or some type of unit editor , anything pretty much
that would allow me to tinker.
superha........ah forget it.
