As will I! I'll also be playing the arcade version on the PS3.

Hey now...



I wonder where you got your hint-picture idea from...





As the creator of the above GIF, I guess I'm in...

...but only if I can play either the board game version...





...or the early 80's CoLeCo tabletop arcade version.




I'm not sure I can hold out until September, though, so I'd better dull my cravings with the help of... the patch.







I wonder if there's a vape version of Zaxxon...

LOL, if you need a patch to help with Zaxxon cravings, you might need to see a doctor about that, my friend! I would welcome you to play the Coleco LCD mini arcade cabinet version. I've never seen one, myself, and would love to hear some thoughts about it, as compared to the other versions. Also, I'd be curious about the board game, and how that works. I'll have to look that up, and do some reading on it!

I must confess, I'm not particularly any good at ZAXXON. But for some reason, I just love playing it soooo much... to the exclusion of meals, sleep, and social interactions over the course of several days.

Needless to say, I can hardly wait to try out the upcoming Sega crossover game:




Seriously, Sega: MAKE. THIS. HAPPEN.




EDIT: Or even better: Zaxxon & Knuckles & Knuckles!

Hey now! I thought I'd show off a couple more of my highly coveted Zaxxon collectibles: a pair of promotional handbill cards...






...that double as mini-strategy guides.









Although these are playing tips for the original arcade version, I'm pretty confident they also largely apply to the various home console releases.


There's also the StrategyWiki page:


https://strategywiki.org/wiki/Zaxxon



Hope this helps y'all out...

Thanks for the awesome photos, Zag! Those will be some nice tips to use, and the link to the strategy wiki page is nice also. I'll have to review that, and see if there are any hints that jump out at me.

Hey now,

That Zaxxon logo. Fantastic.


IT'S FREAKING EPIC, MY GOOD MAN.







FREAK.





ING.





EPIC.






You just can't beat its awesomeness... unless you can somehow make it super awesome. And I can't even begin to imagine this being remotely possible--





Well, then.


There's just no getting away from the awesomeness of ZAXXON...





...no matter how hard you try.


ANYway, I'd better head back to the Motherbase; catch y'all 'later.

Can actually say that I have never played zaxxon. Iím in. I will be playing on Xbox360 Sega Genesis collection once I unlock it. Look forward to the experience.

My go today at the C64 version. This game is really difficult due to the perspective and achingly slow ship.

Here's my best high score so far on the CoLeCo tabletop arcade game version.





Are you not impressed?


I'm aiming for a hundred points, and then I'll get an extra fighter ship thingy. Yay!

Nice! It'd be interesting to see that in action, given the limitations of LCD games, and how some of the obstacles work. I assume there are no fuel tanks to shoot down?

I put some time into this last night, and managed to get to the Zaxxon robot a couple times, and got a decent initial score of 16,000 points:
