Friday Flyers: Berzerk (1980)

I can still remember going into the first arcade in my neck of the woods, it was called Games People Play, and hearing the taunts of the robots from the Berzerk machine. It actually intimidated me and I wouldn’t play the game until my Father was standing behind me as I sat on a stool so that I could reach the controls.

Thanks as always to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the scanned flyers posted below!

It wasn’t until years later that I learned that famed comic book artist Jim Steranko did the artwork around the monitor of the arcade cabinet.
