Berzerk Robot and Evil Otto sprites by PrimeOp Berzerk Robot and Evil Otto sprites by PrimeOp
These are recreations of the robot and Evil Otto from the 1980 arcade game, "Berzerk." The robot is a combination of things I liked about the original in-game sprite, the classic-Cylon-ish bits the robot had on the cabinet art and a bit of Maximilian from the Black Hole. I had a bunch of ideas for Evil Otto, the bouncing smiley face from the original, but settled on a metallic ball with a large pixel face on it. I tilted it downwards a bit to make the eyes look a tiny bit more menacing.

Definetly worthy of a fave. Evil Otto is truly the greatest horror of the arcades after watching two gamers die with that look on his face.

The charm of those verbally-abusive robots will never die.

I will never tire of hearing that line from them, unless I'm playing it!

Atari did a great job of porting of that game, didn't they?

Makes me wonder (in anticipation and excitement) what an HD Berzerk would be like... Leaving Evil Otto as close to the simple smiley face look would REALLY help to drive up the creepiness of a smiley face being the biggest threat.

I agree 100% about the creepiness of keeping Otto as a regular smiley face. I had a bunch of ideas for how to make Otto look, but didn't know how to make the idea translate correctly. I'm not going to say them, because I might revisit this stuff later. All ideas kept the smiley face, though!

It'd be interesting to see how that'd work in MUGEN. I'm sure someone could figure it out.

I've never played Berzerk, but it seems like good simplistic fun - back before plots (even ones as seemingly simple as in Double Dragon) really existed. These sprites you made were good enough to make me want a little HD remake of it.

I'm sure a remake would be easy to do correctly, just as long as they keep those old voice samples.

This game doesn't get enough love, if you ask me.

Thanks for something great!

It's the truth. I used to play this a lot back in the old days and a drive-in theater in my area had it for a while in the 90's, too. The fun factor didn't take a dip after all those years. I'm glad you like those sprites!

Their robotic trash-talk is still legendary.

He's a one-hit kill on contact, so he's one of the last things you want to see breaking through a wall.
