''Havoc'' Is a little-known FirstPersonShooter by defunct developer Reality Bytes, released in 1995. They made only two other games: a Mac-only {{Doom}} clone called Sensory Overload before Havoc, and a third-person HackAndSlash fantasy game called Dark Vengeance, after Havoc. It was advertised as a KillerApp for Windows 95, pushing that OS's graphical and networking capability. In the vein of ''VideoGame/{{Battlezone|1980}}'', Havoc put players in control of a combat vehicle and pitted them against hordes of foes.

foes.



For its time, the game incorporated a number of cutting-edge features: Varied environments and terrain, terrain deformation, support for [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual virtual reality goggles]] of the time, and cross-platform multiplayer between PC and Macintosh. The game worked on either system out of the box, and came with a multiplayer-only second disc that could be given to a friend. If you had enough discs to go around, 16-player deathmatches were possible.

The singleplayer campaign cast you as a sort of land-{{Pirate}}, a freelance [[UniversalDriversLicense tank commander]] wandering the battlefields of a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic Earth]] ruled by [[MegaCorp Mega Corps]] in search of useful loot and supplies. Your enemies are the {{Mooks}} of Tyrakian Global, one such MegaCorp. Their forces are spread across three major regions: The [[DeathMountain mountainous, rocky]] Badlands, the [[SlippySlideyIceWorld frozen Fallen Wastelands]], and the [[EldritchLocation bizarre,]] [[AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield colorful]] [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Tyrakian Territories.]] In each level, there are three [[MacGuffin Gate Keys]] to find, each guarded by a powerful SentryGun and numerous other foes. Find the keys, then find the exit. Do this for three levels and [[BossFight fight a boss]]. There are 30 levels total and six Bosses. You have a ''wide'' variety of weapons to use, and a choice of three vehicles.
