I should mention that I was playing with settings of 5 lives, 10,000 points.

Point of trivia: if you get two scores exactly the same, the one you get later is ranked higher.

I noticed this during one of my streams. Itís an odd choice, but I guess it makes sense from an arcade operator perspective. Someone gets their name on the board while playing, and they might have incentive to try again.

Hey guys.

Sorry for not being very active this month, but i literally had no fun playing this game. I just played two times until i reached my primary goal (to beat the default high score) and then never returned for more.

I Never played Zaxxon before and most likely will never play it again, just not my cup of tea.

Hope you guys had some more fun.

No worries, zoydo - thanks for at least giving it a try! As I mentioned before, it's not for everyone, and I get that. It may be partially why Sega changed up the formula 2 years later with Super Spy.

Hey now!

Did my darnedest to get into three figures on the CoLeCo tabletop game, but the closest I came was:





FYI the vast majority of my points came from shooting ground targets; the planes are almost impossible to pick off.

That makes sense, given the herky jerky nature of LCD games. Timing is harder to gauge when you're talking about static screen positions, versus pixels and frames. Good score, though, considering it's 1 point per target! That means you've picked off quite a few. Does this version have the Zaxxon robot in some form?
