The official home computer version of SEGA's ZAXXON! Unique colour graphics surround you as you pilot your aircraft through a 3-dimension-like battlefield complete with enemy aircraft, fuel tanks, concealed missiles, anti-aircraft tanks, and nerve-shattering sound effects.

ZAXXON looks and sounds like aircraft flight, and players can soar to new levels of home computer entertainment. From the daring attack on the enemy's floating fortress and the blazing battle against the enemy's fighter fleet to the final showdown with the deadly armored robot, ZAXXON challenges the skill and imagination of every player at every skill level.

Imagine yourself the pilot, attacking the enemy fortress climbing, diving, swooping, and strafing to score points and extra fuel. The enemy fights back with a barrage of missiles and gunfire. Then you face a fleet of enemy fighters in a gripping dogfight of altitude strategy and flying skill. Survive this battle and the enemy's fortress, defended with laser barriers, and you will have earned the ultimate challenge: a blazing confrontation with the powerful robot, armed with a lethal homing missile.

ZAXXON is the one game that you must see to believe. You have to play it to feel its impact if you're ready to face the challenge!
