Episode 25: Zaxxon / Space Raid

In this episode, we review two games; Coleco Zaxxon and ColectorVision Space Raid. We hear a bit about what went into Space Raid from the designer / programmer, Oscar “Nanochess” GutiĆ©rrez. We also have an interview with the creator and one of the hosts of 80 of the 80s Podcast Clay “DJ CK1” Kriese (he’s also a big Intellivision fan). And our usual Feedback, News and George (who STILL seems to be a bit upset with the Atari 5200 Super Podcast for some reason).
