Zedex Tanks - De-make of Battle City released for the ZX Spectrum by Epsilon Games

Another great ZX Spectrum news story for you all, as if you remember playing the 1985 game of Battle City by Namco for the NES, then as of just recently you can play Epsilon Games newest of creations called 'Zedex Tanks'. As in the words of the team behind the game "This game for classic ZX Spectrum models is the most exact functional de-make of Battle City, developed in 1985 for NES by Namco." To coincide with this news, Saberman was also kind enough to do a video showing the game in action.

Here is what the website says about the game "The first ZX Spectrum version was developed in 1996, then in 2016 it was polished (a few dozens of bugs were fixed, control and platform type selection screen was added) thanks to help from zx-pk.ru forum users, and finally in 2023 it was released on ZX Online platform. The game contains all 35 classic levels, the only difference is that they are decreased in vertical direction (by 2 blocks), as the screen of Spectrum has 24 blocks in height, while in the original NES game the size of the playing area is 26×26 blocks".

"The authors tried to transfer the atmosphere and dynamics of the original game as much as possible, but the difficulty of the game was slightly reduced. Also added is the ability to choose a control device and a set of buttons (when playing on the keys), the ability to choose the border colour (you can choose black for maximum comfort of eyes, or white for authenticity, or any other of 8 possible colours)".
