Game of the Day - Section Z
Section Z is so named because you fly thru sections that are labelled alphabetically. At certain predetermined spots, the game changes from left/right scrolling to up & down.
The controls are simple and a little bit unusual. You have two buttons, one to shoot and one to change the direction you are facing. As you can imagine, there are power-ups available that can improve your speed and the power of your shot - but that's about it, nothing too fancy.
The graphics are typical for the time period and pleasant - mostly you play Section Z because of the nice action and interesting flight patterns of the enemies, as well as a difficulty level that isn't all that easy.
Play Section Z and see what letter you can get to without the benefit of continuing.
