Birthed in 1982, Zaxxon is a demonstration of old school hardcore and now all the people used to flailing their arms can try it out on the Nintendo Wii. Trust us, this game will punish you.
On the console front, the game originally appeared on the SG-1000 and on the Master System. Check it out. Plus, Edward at SEGA gave this title a great write-up that worth a read.
