Well, that’s certainly a mouthful. But if you cast your mind back to the old school shooters such as Doom, Wolfenstein and Quake then you can picture exactly what to expect in QUByte Classics: Zero Tolerance Collection by PIKO.
Out today, the retro arena shooter throws the player right into the fray by having them fight off aliens with guns, grenades and lasers. The elite squad known as “Zero Tolerance” takes up the battle, with five different characters available to choose from at the outset. As you may expect, each has differing weapons and skills to make use of in the battle against the alien menace.
All the action takes place in a fully 3D environment with a 360°degree perspective. There are more than forty levels to fire through as well as five save slots per game. Depending on how authentic you wish your experience to be, you can choose from XBR, CRT, Smooth and Sharp filters combined with Normal, Fit and Stretch screen types.
QUByte Classics: Zero Tolerance Collection by PIKO consists of three games: Zero Tolerance, Zero Tolerance Underground and an unreleased demo called Zero Tolerance Beyond, which can be unlocked by finishing either of the two other games. This last game was never finished, and therefore had not previously been released with the other two.
Zero Tolerance was developed back in the ‘90s for the SEGA Genesis by Technopop, the first independent American videogames developer. The company was dissolved in 2000 and assets transferred to Randall Reiss, who still owns Zero Tolerance to this day.

Zero Tolerance is an old school arena shooter that will bring back the felling of adrenaline to the player while taking out the bad guys (bad aliens in this case) with guns, grenades and even laser guns. The name Zero Tolerance refers to an elite squad specially trained composed by five members that are available to choose in the beginning of the game, each one with their own unique weapons and skills that completely changes the way you play through the levels in the game. The QUByte Classics version includes 3 games: Zero Tolerance, Zero Tolerance Underground and an unreleased demo called Zero Tolerance Beyond, which can be unlocked by finishing one of the two other games. Zero Tolerance was originally developed by the first independent game developer, Technopop, and published in 1994 by Accolade. Technopop was funded by Randel Reiss, who is the owner of the “Zero Tolerance”. QUByte Interactive and PIKO Interactive.
