For those who enjoyed the 1980 arcade hit Berzerk, Frenzy was very much a highly anticipated game. 1982’s Frenzy, released by Stern Electronics took the gameplay and mechanics of it’s predecessor and added to it. Although a great game in it’s own right, Frenzy failed to find the same level of success as the original. Many credit this to the fact that the game is in fact even more difficult than Berzerk which was a difficult enough game on it’s own. The game was ported over to
ColecoVision and the Sinclair ZX in 1983.

Frenzy is a continuation of the story which takes place in Berzerk. You must navigate the hero through a maze filled with killer robots. Just like in the original (and most arcade games of that era) there is no end in sight, just the constant onslaught of the enemy. Keep playing your way through wave after wave of robots trying to set a high score. The game ends when the player runs out of lives. – Read the rest of the article here from Classic Console Magazine (courtesy of Old School Gamer)!
