Thanks, Omar! This is the worst version of Battlezone I played so far!

What makes it the worse Rob? Bad emulation?

Yes of course on all from me yes

@Bamse: The game reacts differently to the other versions. The control is very fragile. I broke one when I playing Crystal Castles [Worst Version]

Yes, like Omar says! Additionally it lacks of the significant increase of difficulty in later stages the Atari 2600 offers (esp. no yellow tanks!).

Many thanks!

Yes, the joystick is not made for heavy duty indeed! xD Also the controller is tiny and as the pause button sits so near by the stick sometimes annoyingly the pause function is triggered when yanking the joystick!

Fine score Rob!

Didn't realise the flashback wasn't exactly like the 2600.

YES

Thanks, nads!

Battlezone on the Atari Flashback 1 is a very different game to the versions on it's successor consoles. I also played Battlezone on FB 3 and it is much closer to the 2600 game!

The Flashback 1 doesn't use emulation.  Instead, it uses the infamous 'NES-on-a-chip' technology instead.  Trust me, it's not as good as it could've been.  I mean, in Asteroids, there's no inertia whatsoever, meaning when you stop thrusting, your ship stops immediately!

I think they got better technology with the later versions.
