A zaxxon clone on the mz700 or mz800?

Post by ysblokje »

Hey,

I was watching some retro games videos on the tubes recently where I saw blizzard being played, that triggered a memory that I can't seem to either confirm or deny!

Was there ever a zaxxon clone made? (the one I found was a completely different game and not at all zaxxon-like)

I hope your memory is better than mine.

Not a Zaxxon clone on the MZ-800 (running in MZ-700 mode): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMOfOrXNVMs

Jup, that's the one I found too. Maybe I should write my own or something :lol:

I kinda remember to have seen one I thought it was for MZ-80 K. But I fail to retrieve it on Internet and Ex-Twitter.

Yes, there was a game very much like Zaxxon for the MZ-80K in Japan but I don't recall its name right now.

That is! Do you know where we can find the binary? Its design has a tron-like feeling.
