Season 1, Episode 4: Battlezone

In Episode 4 of the Season of Atari, we discuss Ed Rotberg’s 1980 first-person tank shooter, Battlezone.

In addition to being a classic vector, Battlezone is also one of the first examples of an immersive, first person virtual reality game.
It is also a point where Atari really began spreading its wings in terms of game design, as well as making major advances in hardware and software engineering.
