Hey everyone, remember Zaxxon? Well it’s back, and now it’s a pog! Oh, sorry, no, it’s actually back as a new game with updated graphics and gameplay for iOS and Android devices! Zaxxon Escape is a sequel to the classic arcade game that follows your spaceship as it attempts to flee the space fortress after defeating the final boss. Though we all have to take their word for it, since I don’t know a single person anywhere who finished that game.
Featuring tilt-and-tap controls, Zaxxon Escape reminds me of the assault on the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi. Obstacles and tunnels wrap around the ship as you hurtle towards obstacles and enemies. The obligatory trailer gives you a taste of the gameplay:
On the Apple end, Zaxxon Escape requires iOS 4 and is compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch 4th generation or greater and iPad 2 or greater. It’ll set you back 99 cents and is available now in the App Store.
