I used to run a DOS BBS back in the day--we used to play a game called "bzone" --it must have been based on the Atari Battlezone... The DOS version kicked *** I know that there have been many Battlezone clones over the years--but this was the first one for the PC--very early--almost as far back as spacewars.exe. I found an old BBS directory listing in google that had the file bzone.arc 68k -- but that was only a list--no files... It was probably around 68k compressed. This was a wireframe game--no shading--and it was a lot like the original coin-op arcade game... My guess is that I can't find it because somebody's lawyers didn't want it on the internet? It's hard to imagine that as a possibility--given how old this game is by today's standards... What do you think? Am I losing my mind? Did anyone else play the original battlezone wireframe (ie: green lines Wink on DOS ?

I'm searching and searching but I can find it. Bzone.exe is definitely a piece of DOS history--up there with spacewars and sopwith2...

I used to play DSS too--with the cardboard cutout to divide the screen for 2 players! LOL. Great memories from childhood--I'll have to hunt my favorites down somehow--but I want to start by finding Battlezone...

Thanks for your time--

I remembered this game while writing in my blog (knowingart.com) --and I was making connections between this game and the movie Tron, etc... If you want to chat my Yahoo/AIM is "yesiliveinaustin" -- feel free to contact me--I'm always interested in meeting new people.

Thanks again for this cool site!

There was also a wireframe starwars game that had wireframe 3D graphics--and I'm pretty sure there was a PC version of this game also... Hmm I'll have to look for that too...

Anyway, if you don't remember what the "pre-Doom" 3D games looked like--here you go:

.... and you found it:
battlezone.zip - 0.04MB
Grab it whilst the link is still valid.

Keep cycles extremely low in dosbox.
CPU=386_slow is also advisable.

I'm sure it was Battlezone clone... space shooter (not exactly tank) and I play it in 90s with colors Happy

It was somethink like Stellar 7 (Dynamix). Player could shoot using [space].
