Game Overview

Travel back to a time when a lovable alien phoned home, gas cost a mere 90 cents a gallon, and everyone was wearing high-tops, leg warmers and had big hair. This was the early 80s, and this was when video gamers nationwide were wowed by the cutting edge graphics and sound effects of the first three-dimensional-like intergalactic arcade shooter: Zaxxon. Touted as the first game to put video display in perspective, Zaxxon featured “looks” and “sounds” like actual aircraft flight, allowing the player to command his ship just like a real fighter pilot. Dive, bank, fly left and right, and up and down—Zaxxon had it all. Fly through heavily armored space fortresses, strafing fuel tanks, dodging walls, and blowing up enemy missiles and gunnery. This game is littered with explosions. Then take the fight to the enemy fighter fleet and destroy the aggressor ships with extreme prejudice. Blasting pixels has never been so fun.
