The smash hit of PCW Show 1983 - you had to preorder it at the show, no copies were available for sale as an anti-piracy measure. The show display featured multi-overhead screens, a presentation first for a computer show.

ZZoom's gameplay was simple - planes zoomed up to you, shoot them and they explode. Careful work was done by the designer to ensure the 3D plane transitions were fast and smooth. Although graphically pleasing, the actual gameplay soon got repetitive. Those who say today's games lack the gameplay of yesteryear forget ZZoom, which was beautiful but soon got boring.
