Zaxxon uses an isometric three-quarters perspective that was a unique concept to arcade games of that era. Other popular games like Congo Bongo and Future Spywould build on that Zaxxon boardset. Touted as 3D, the flight-simulator mechanics and cross-hair targeting made it the most popular game at the local arcade for a succession of months in 1982. This unit has the WICO 8-way joystick upgrade with custom button (not pictured on the advertisement art).
