A faithful reconstruction of the classic Atari 2600 game Berzerk.

Manik was painstakingly written from scratch, and is not a port or an emulation. I loved Berzerk as a kid and would like to keep the game alive. I played many hours of Berzerk learning the behaviour of the game in order to reproduce all the quirks.

* Identical gameplay (can even shoot the robot bullets & Evil Otto)
* Rebuilt graphics and sounds to closely match the original (and YES the robots talk)
* Identical quirks from the original console (black lines, bugs, otto flickering)
* Game controller support

The controls are -identical- to the Atari 2600 version. Thats how it was in the 1980s. If you are expecting smooth 360 degree motion - please don't post complaints in the reviews section. This is a remake of an old game, including things you dislike about it.

Atari bugs can be disabled/enabled. This is completely freeware with no adds.

I own no Berzerk copyrights, and Manik does not contain any original data from the Berzerk ROM. It just.. looks a lot like it :)

Wise Yoda says 'Have many fingers, find many secrets! Touchy tappy! Find Berzerk hidden secret!'

Recently changed in this version

Everyone was asking about smaller controls for phones. Welp, done!
The small controls are default, so check the settings for a 'large controls' option.

Also thanks to everyone who commented with kind words. I spent many saturday mornings as a kid in my underpants playing Berzerk. I'm still playing Berzerk these days. And in my underpants.

    But the controls are rather lacking. Also..did you know the original game only used about 40kb of space? Dude, This game uses a whopping 1 mb.

    I would rate 5 stars if you didnt ruin this Atari classic with your lame internet MeeMees, like YOLO and troll faces. The only people who use MeeMees are fat 12 year olds who think Chuck Norris is still cool. If youre gunna do something, do it right.

    This game makes me feel stupid because I don't know how you shoot the enemy on my phone. There is no "how to play"

    The control pad sucks! Why would you separate the directions when the atari 2600 controller had a joystick. This game would be fun if the movement was scrapped and started over. Appealing graphics but the control kills it.
