I tried a few games.  There is nothing "Super" about this Zaxxon.

I can typically make my own post, but I'm away at a kids camp. I'd really like to do Do Don Pachi, as I didn't see it on the list. Would you be willing to make a post for me?

No problem. I think this one might actually be a step up. I figure that at least I won't have to wrestle the controls all the time.
