Zeus: Carnage Heart Second (ゼウス カルネージハートセカンド Zeusu karunējihātosekando) is a single player sci-fi simulation game released by Artdink for Windows in December 1999 for Japan only.

Gameplay

The game takes place in the future where conflicts are fought with hi-tech war machines. These robots are named Overkill Engines (OKEs). The player cannot directly control them in-game, but has to buy components and program their behavior for various battle conditions.

You can also purchase, research, or upgrade new equipment, parts and the robots themselves in order to use them for an extended amount of time.

The basic system is the same as the previous Zeus games, but it has made significant improvements such as enhancing the graphical aspect, improving operability, new aircraft and logic program.

The PC version had a function to exchange OKE data via Internet mail. Apart from the fact that a scenario was seemingly also added, it is a direct port of the PlayStation version.

Availability

The game is considered extremely rare (most probably due to low production numbers and/or bad sales) and despite being listed on Amazon Japan, and having a still-functional official game page, it cannot be bought commercially or downloaded online.

This is most likely a port of the PS1 game of the same name from 1998, and then re-released on the Japanese PSN in 2009. In fact, there is gameplay footage on youtube, along with Ebay auctions for the PS1 version.
