Destruction Zone is an arcade/strategy science fiction tank war game. The camera views the robot and human controlled tanks from above and players fire at each other, saving money with which they can shop for better weapons. The game is simple on the surface but rich in strategy.
D-Zone works on Mac OS X. Version 1.0 was written as a PC Shareware game in 1992 and owing to its popularity the original author and Australian composer Julian Cochran completely re-wrote the game for the future generation of computers in June 2000 and version 2.1 was released in January 2010.
1. Red dots introduced (they were in the original version) so that
when you cannot fire the currently selected weapon a red glow appears
in the middle of the tank.
2. If you try to fire when out of weapon energy there is a special
sound effect with emotional impression of trying to fire when you
cannot. Combined with 1 this gives a solid feeling that pressing fire
lots of times isn't how the game is played.
3. Music now playing as mp3 and new music included for the title page.
4. The entire zone is brighter - there was simply not enough light in
the game in the first release.
5. Robots don't fire in the first four seconds - unless you fire
yourself in which case they start as soon as you fire.
