TRIVIA

Zoom 909 was released during December 1982 in Japan.

Export releases:
"Buck Rogers - Planet of Zoom [Cockpit model]".
"Buck Rogers - Planet of Zoom [Upright model]".

This games continue feature was unlimited, (which made the high score meaningless). That 'feature' made the game unpopular with the best players, (what's the point if you can just buy the top score ?).

SERIES

1. Zoom 909 (1982, Arcade)
