Super Zaxxon
 
Original Game:Zaxxon 
Hacked By:Dr. Kwack
Type of Hack:Graphic Hack
Year Created:2004

Description
The Coleco Zaxxon leaves a bit to be desired for most, however this hack attempts to change all of that. With improved graphics and a noticeable Super Zaxxon bent, this may make the original Zaxxon more enjoyable.
 
What's New
All Enemy sprites have been changed/altered to look like arcade counterparts. Enemy sprites have been made smaller to make hitting them a bit (but not much) more difficult. The Zaxxon Robot has been made to resemble the Super Zaxxon Dragon. He shoots a fireball instead of a missile. You have to hit the little "x" on his shoulder three times to destroy him.
