A huge thanks as always to the incredible Arcade Flyer Archive for this wonderful scan of the Astro Zone flyer from Taito!
The Archive says this game was European only and I’ve certainly never come across it in the wilds of the arcade. Reading the hints for higher scoring I was taken a bit aback by “In Frame 4, be sure you shoot the first monster that appears. An accurate shot will allow you to proceed to Frame 5 and 6. If you miss the first monster but hit the second you can only proceed to Frame 5.”. So if you miss that shot you can’t reach the ‘end’ of the game? Wow…that’s pretty hardcore rules even for 1980!
