Zoids: The Battle Begins

 Home > Browse Our Collection > Software > Sinclair ZX Spectrum > Zoids: The Battle Begins
Based on the cartoon series of the same name, and starring the plastic toys produced at the same time.

The player gets to sit inside one of the mechanised beasts, which are based around dinosaurs, and guiding missiles into bases and also taking out dangerous  foes, eventually leading to a climatic battle with Zoidzilla, the most feared and deadliest of all.

The magazine reviews all rated the game very highly, but unfortunately most people who played it did not enjoy it that much, finding the missile guiding system and collision detection rather annoying.
