In Episode 016, we take a closer look at an early shooting game that seems to be largely forgotten in today's gaming landscape, despite it being ahead of its time, and somewhat influential. Not only is it the first arcade game to have a TV commercial, but it also introduced us to gaming in an isometric perspective. Why is this game so forgotten? We discuss that and more, as we talk all about Sega's Zaxxon!
