Complete set, tested and working

Original Frenzy Berzerk arcade game circuit boardset in working condition. This listing includes the five circuit boards (ZPU, BSC, VFB, Sound and Speech boards). All of the boards have been tested and work fine. Note that the RCR filter board is not included.

All of the other boards, including the ZPU-1000 boardset have been tested and work fine. The ZPU board has some signs of lighter corrosion near the battery.  We have done our best to clean it up and have been tested over night without any issues.  The traces on the bottom in that area are very clean. In our experience, these boards usually hold up well in this condition.  The ZPU board currently does NOT have a battery installed, so it will need one (or a high score save kit) to save scores.

The ribbon cables are NOT included, we do not have enough to spare at this moment.

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."
