      Only had a couple of games of this so far, might try for a score tomorrow.

      First I ever knew of this game was a screenshot in some gaming magazine back in the 80's for the C64 version - the graphics blew me away, still a fan of the isometric graphics to this day.

      Puzzling though that the graphics in the game are so awesome for their time, yet the title/attract screen is so ugly and boring - wonder if the programmers ran out of money (or memory) to make something a bit more appealing.

        This one feels like Lode Runner in 3D.

          Wanted to clear level 1 before I submitted a score. Finally managed to get past level 1, took awhile to figure out the end of board 1 on level 2 (after you slide down the ramp...he keeps sliding if you're not careful), and managed to get to board 3.

            Used the keyboard for this one. Made an accidental discovery on the first screen for an extra 500 points. Hating the third screen.

            Rage quit count is VERY high

              While we're not supposed to offer game strategies for a week or so, my strategy is that I find I'm able to play exactly three games of this in row before any real serious anger sets in.

                      I can't get this to run - have grabbed a few differetn copies of the roms but always the same crash.

                      Anyone got any tips? Below is the screenshot of the crash and I'm running Mame V107

                        Count yourself lucky that you can't play it

                        I doubt it's a ROM problem. It's complaining about a d3d setting, and with an access violation I would say it could be a video driver issue, maybe check that out and update your vid drivers, or have a look in your MAME.INI file and try changing around some of the direct3d settings.

                          Not sure if I'm going to play this one much.
                          Here is a score just to get on the board.

                            I think I can say without exaggeration that this is the most terrible, least playable game I've ever experienced. Like mussels with mussel sauce and a mussel soup entr?e.

                            Zaxxon Kong I call it.
