Zaxxon

Zaxxon

Zaxxon is a classic space encounter in which you find youself at the controls of an attack space shuttle spacecraft. You must strafe the enemy Asteroid City in an attempt to destroy fuel tanks, gun emplacements, missles and enemy aircraft. With the aid of an altimeter you must barnstorm your way through narrow wall openings, lethal electronic barriers, and deadly rocket fire.

A successful attack run across the Asteroid City leads you to a deep space dogfight with squadrons of enemy planes. Surviving the perils of outer space brings you to another Asteroid City and a showdown with the Insidious robot, ZAXXON.

Successfully destroying the evil ZAXXON allows further play but with increased difficultly. The game continues until all of your ships have crashed or been lost to enemy fire.
