yes, must have been 1981.
I was 15 and took part on a scholar exchange in France.
The french guys had video-machines always earlier than the germans, so I lost LOT of money in those hollydays Laughing

Zaxxon was quite revolutionary, as it was one of the first pseudo-3D games, which was much different to 2D-games like space invaders or phoenix.

Hi all...

This goes back a ways. Smile

I was easily able to get it working in Precise 5.6.1 by first installing the .pets I've included below, if you haven't already, and by installing the game using the link the OP provided above. Smile

Hopefully this works with the other versions of Puppy as well...

Regards...
