Game History - Zaxxon - 1984
The Zaxxon defence system must be destroyed in this isometric-viewed shoot 'em up.
The game has three stages, first taking you through Asteroid City, which is heavily
protected by aircraft, guns and missiles. Many barriers are alarmed, leaving you with
limited space to progress through, and fire must constantly be dodged.
Stage two is a space shoot out against hordes of enemy aircraft - those you failed
to destroy in the first part of the task. Complete this and you reach the final
battle with Zaxxon, the game looping with increased difficulty if you can survive the
first time. There are three distinct skill levels, while controls involve using
forward to dive and back to climb, in the manner of flight simulation.
