Game Genie™ Codes For Herzog Zwei
Download PAT File
This battle-of-the-bases war game requires strategic thinking and careful management of your money. Plenty of Game Genie(tm) codes to help you with both! ZWEI Code 3 does give you infinite money, but when you spend, money is deducted from your total. Therefore, when buying a command you may temporarily run short of G's and have to wait until you build up enough. With Code 6, you can't shoot down planes with antiaircraft fire, but you can switch off the effect when you want to. If you use ZWEI Code 7, you won't be able to defend your base--so be ready to switch off when you have to. With Code 8, the game lasts forever, since it prevents the players' bases from being destroyed. Switch off effects to finish the game. Codes 12 thru 16 set both players' total strength at the start of the game to the level chosen. Normally, once you decide you want to buy a weapon, it takes a few seconds for that weapon to be made and become available for pick up. With Code 2, there's no wait. Code 4 allows you to fly or walk around without energy loss.

Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Herzog Zwei
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    TechnoSoft
RELEASED:         1989
TYPE:             Shooter
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          A departure from the usual top-down sci-fi shooter in
                  that this features a three-mode transformable battle
                  tank.  Intended from the onset for two-player dual play,
                  although it can be played with just one player.

IMPRESSIONS:      What was that title again?  This resembles more of a
                  top-down Macross shooter than anything original.  Still,
                  it's a challenging game with a dash of strategy thrown in
                  for good measure.  Two player dual mode is supported -
                  and highly recommended!

VARIATIONS:       It is my understanding that a sequel for the Sega Saturn
                  was eventually released before that platform's demise.

My page Sega Forever has a Herzog Zwei section. It's been up for a while...

This one truly great game that was overlooked by everyone, including those guys at egm :) What most people don't realize is that Herzog Zwei (or the Second Baron translated from german into english) was a great rts by Techno Soft in which you, the player, pilot a mechanized plane that can morph into walking robot. You actually get to shoot in this game, making it more interesting for the player and more fun! You also get to build troops and tanks and things and give them commands and ship em out to wherever. The main goal of the game is to destroy the other player or computer's home base. You are also trying to capture bases around the map, for more power and money. The graphics in this game are pretty nice, usual genesis fare. There's about 8 maps to choose from, each with it's own terrain and even one with water so you can use boats! There's even a 2 player split screen mode that moves very smoothly. the music is great for the time and has some neat "moog" sounding music effects. Just watch out for the computer, he'll kick your ass if your not good. So go read a faq on this game before you even attempt it. It's not hard to learn, it's just if you don't have the instruction manual handy, you won't understand what to do. Once you learn everything, the game is just so much fun! I give this game a 9.5!

A little known fact is that Herzog Zwei is the sequel to Herzog, which was released on a japanese computer called an msx. Herzog is a fun little game, but no where near the complexity of Herzog Zwei. I read in the variations comment that there was a sequel for saturn, anybody have anyway of confirming this? Because I haven't found anything about it on any herzog sites.

A thoroughly under rated game in my book... takes a little while to get into, and the computer AI is a bit suspect at times.. Multiplayer splitscreen mode, however, is another matter. Get a few friends round, stick a bit of cardboard in the middle to stop people seeing each others screen (optional) and this game is great fun! This has to rank as one of my favorite ever multiplayer Genesis games.

Well, What can I say?
On one hand good, the other bad. Guess I have to try 2 player. The graphics, while not stellar do well, The control outright suxs. Remember to tell a unit what to do before building it or you'll end up with an unusable piece of junk. and the computer CHEATS hard sometimes. The music is passable, and overall is a pretty good game. I don't know why people love it so much, I can think of better titles to waste my time on.

Well, this is one of my all-time-favorites. You need to play it with two players though, the ai is pretty simplistic.... just send some boats on his base in the island level and he'll try to transform in the water all the time :) But then again, I guess they didn't have much CPU power to work on.

And remember: this is the game Westwood got their inspiration from to do Dune II, so Herzog Zwei is actually the mother of all RTS games. :)

This is one of the best Sega games ever. Infact, I just went to buy a Sega Megadrive(genesis) and HEZOG in the beginning of this yr. This game is pretty boring in single player, as after a while, the computer's moves are pretty predictable. but in 2 player mode...WOW. I can still remember the countless hours i spent with my friends battling it all out in this game.

And yes this is the mother of all RTS...way before dune 2 comes out :)

I can do nothing but agree with all of you guys. This game is superb--well, at least multiplayer is. The strategies you can create are endless with furious and consistent action! Also, the music fits each stage perfectly with pounding drums (mega-bass!!) and synths. It's a classic that needs to be redone. I give it an 9.
