I rue the day I got this game. Pitiful. I loved the real Zaxxon. This is no Zaxxon. They didn't even get the rocket on the correct side! We all know the Intellivision is capable of much more. Look at Safecracker by Imagic! Space Raid by CollectorVision proves that this could have been done better.

ROM ShockVision title screen hack confirmed.
Box So far, seven variations have been found.
Manual Seven variants have been identified.
Overlays Custom overlays have been designed and distributed by Psycho Stormtrooper.
Label To date, eight labels have been recorded.
Easter Eggs No Easter Eggs have been found.

A total of seven Zaxxon box variants have been documented.
