Quick Game Facts

Considered to be somewhat of a "breakthrough" game, Stern created an instant classic with Berzerk. You play the "Humanoid" and must escape. Robots and that Evil Otto (who is indestructable) will try and stop you.

Coin-Op Overview

The arcade version of Berzerk features a voice synthesizer, and despite having a small vocabulary, it has some memorable phrases such as "Stop the Intruder" and "The humanoid must not escape!" Many phrases were assembled by re-arranging the words. Sterned released a follow-up game named "Frenzy."
