Here is my best score so far of 124 (Skill level 1, cause this game is very difficult to judge depth on properly)

shadowflame is right. the depth is tough to keep up with.
it took me quite a while to get this score.
skill 2 / 142 points

Hi all! I'm new to Coleco Zaxxon, but very addicted.
But it seems no matter how long I play I can only get to 75 points! It's the hardest handheld in the universe!!
Maybe my zaxxon is just old and worn out, because I can't seem to get the joystick to move precisely enough all the time. Seems the ship "jumps" sometimes two spaces when it should have moved one space. Course, I only have ever played this one, so I can't compare it to any others, haha!
I finally managed to start shooting the ships in the outer space parts by counting how many movements up and across so I could figure out where they actually are in space.
Since I can't get thru the third asteroid fortress part, I don't know what comes next. Does the game just get harder, or do you get to have a showdown with the zaxxon robot like in the arcade version? I'm dying to find out!!!

Excellent, Billy! I'm excited to see what you can do. One of the reasons I love this game so much is that you can get a high score without playing the "same" game for 45 minutes (as in TRON, etc). Of course, it takes me about 50 games of zaxxon to get a decent score, haha!
So far, I've determined that there is no 'boss' stage as I'd hoped, tho I can't seem to survive past the third asteroid fortress to find out. Looks like the robot just pops in here and there.
Look forward to hearing from you soon!

That high score I got might have been pure luck, because most of the games I played before that were nowhere near that high.
On that game, I still had all of my ships plus the bonus one you get for 100 pts. - and suddenly I noticed that I beat the latest high score, I got so excited that I lost all my lives between the same two walls, haha!
In the fortress parts, you really have sweep back and forth shooting as much as possible to crank the score up. Tho, I still can't seem to get much in the outer space parts. Those ships are so hard to hit!
I got sucked in for several hours last weekend on that game.

Congrats Billy!

You are a real trooper! I think this is the hardhest handheld game in the universe, which is why it MUST be conquered!

Hmm, back to worship the ol Zaxxon shrine. I will see what I can accomplish to top your score, he he!

Woo hoo! Uh oh, Billy, looks like you're not done yet! Up for another challenge?



This game is insane! I have an extreme love/hate relationship with it.
I can't stop playing it, and I can't stop swearing at it!
