    MGLXL - Game 4 ~ Zaxxon (closes 28-Jul)

    Experience the controls, you climb and dive

    MGLXL Game 4 ~ Zaxxon

    Nominated by gamer: BandontheRun

    ROM WolfMAME 0.106: zaxxon (set 1)



    Game Story:
    You pilot an attack shuttle whose mission is to strafe the enemy's "Asteroid City". Destroy fuel tanks, gun emplacements, missiles, fighters and a large enemy robot. The game uses an isometric three-quarters perspective that was a unique concept to arcade games of that era.

    Score Submissions:
    Please make a new post for each score you post, with your score as the first line of your post, along with a screen shot showing your score and initials. This game finishes Sunday 28 July 2019, 7pm Sydney time.

    Please make sure your settings are as above. No continues are allowed when submitting a score and must be played from the beginning of the game. No pausing. No auto fire allowed. No stitching of INP files with save states. Single player only. No cheats allowed.

    Games can be played at the arcade. You must ensure the arcade operator has the game at the MGL game settings for the submission to be valid.

    GAME 4 Feel the power as you attack and evade

    Last played somewhere between MGL1 and MGL7, about 11 years ago.

    MGLXL - Arcade Chalk. AKA MGLXL - Games RMacauley totally sucks at

    Let it be duly noted that I don't hate any of the games so far (yes even that BLOODY EVIL CLOWN GAME) I just suck at them. And not from lack of trying over the years.

    And now.... back to the arcade.......

    As low as this score is it's a new PB. To be honest I'll be happy to break 30K on this game but I'm predicting that'll be several hundred thousand off the pace

    Such beautifully drawn isometric graphics on this one, looks like the programmers used up all of their memory (prob 64kb worth) and didn't leave enough memory for a half decent "ZAXXON" title

    I would have preferred a mind blowing title screen that made me weep with its beauty and a game that played in nice straight lines.

    This game is like Qbert in a spaceship.

    This game has always had a bit of a mystique about it for me growing up; though I never really played it much. It's quite awkward and challenging to play. It actually makes me think of a C64 game called "Raid over Moscow" which I did play a bit. Simply getting out of the hangar in that game was an achievement.

    A video for those curious or nostalgic:
