Zaxx
« on: March 17, 2019, 21:38:21 PM »
Skullboy Videogames has created an updated version of Zaxxon called Zaxx that can be played online using your browser.  It has excellent music and you can choose from various camera angles to play.  It has a 2016 copyright but I only recently discovered it.  You can play the game here:  Zaxx.

Music is by Chris Hülsbeck, so no wonder it's great ;)

Nice game, always has been, although I prefer the original by far, don't like the visuals here at all, but that might just be me. Although changing the camera to 1st person is awesome!!

Yes, I like that you can change the camera view to play. The first person perspective actually works well.  So, I guess Sega wasn't totally wrong when they did that with the 2600 version!  LOL
