Zaxxon

In the year 1982, Coelco Industries published the game Zaxxon, developed by the renounced SEGA Enterprises. This action packed science-fiction game gives the players a Bird’s eye view of the map and lets the players enjoy pseudo 3D effect. Zaxxon is basically a a shooting game that asks the players to shoot down enemy personals as well as to destroy other targets. The game was one of the first games to display shadow which marked its design improvement prospect. The shadows would help the players in understanding the height of their aircraft from the ground as the game allowed players to control the altitude of flight. Zaxxon was effectively the first game which was advertised in TV. Paramount Pictures had famously done the commercial. Being a shooting game to the core, the game asked players to shoot down as many targets as possible before the aircraft he/she is flying in runs out of fuel. Also the player has to dodge any enemy fire coming his/her way. Although fuel tanks could be refilled along the way by bombing fuel tanks kept within enemy area. The game starts with the player needing to go through Asteroid city which happens to be heavily guarded by enemy aircrafts,missile launchers and guns. Aircrafts that are still active after crossing the city follow the player till outer space and they have to be taken down there Finally after putting down all of them the player has to endure the last and final battle with Zaxxon.
