A game that strays from the norm in ways. You must navigate through an underground labyrinth room by room, to find several floppies. Once you get them, get the hell out so you don't blow your ass up.

Comments: This really was a top game. i loved the thinking and writing down the notes. though i was too lazy to create a map thus i enever completed the game, but i probably will next time. reminds me a little of impssible mission except this game was much much better. I imagine in the era it came out 87, it would have been one of the best games around at the time

Comments: i read some of the previous comments on this game and i don't know, this game isn't really in the exact same league as Metroid. Metroid is the king of this style of game, but this was a nice attempt. got this for christmas and beat it in about 4 days. to beat it i had to come up with nick names for the symbols... king tut, glasses, eyes, weirdo, plug etc. it worked for me. the whole reason i even asked for this game was based on the anime picture of JJ blasting you with the SEGA light Phaser. who knew that the american SEGA light Phaser was based off the Zillion Anime... wow!

Comments: I liked it, but just barely. Despite how many people give it very high marks, it just struck me as being very repetitive. If I want to figure out a maze, I'll run a crayon through a Denny's place mat some time. At least then you can ogle some waitresses (sorry, servers).

Comments: Best game ever. I wanted to BE a White Knight when I was young. I was one of the idiots that didn't realize the "symbols" were numbers. I had names for them all...fish, glasses, heart, zero. It wasn't until I saw the same symbols on a Simpsons episode years later that I realized. I still play it from time to time. A trick to get more time for the trek back to the ship: once you beat the cyborg/dragon thing at the end, go back to the main computer and cancel the explosion. Then, enter the code again, the monster won't be there the second time - and your time will have reset. Also: If you pause the game at the end when the TopDream logo appears, after a minute a quiet, musak-like version of the ending will play. I'm gonna go play it right now!

Comments: Hey, I saw a game like this once that someone was playing on a computer (PC), and I can't find it ANYwhere. I think it's older, 90's perhaps. I remember a vertical platforming level, and some badguys, some jungle foliage perhaps, but the main thing was that your character accessed computers like in Zillion. Anyone have a clue as to what that is? =/ (please email me if you do! =) Man, I LOVE this game... Zillion II was okay (fun in it's own rights), but this kept me going for weeks. Never drew maps, but I did write down the symbols the first time I played 'til I made names for 'em (then I chanted them in my head for each room until I could get to the computer, lol). Used to take me about four hours to finish, now only two. ^^ If we could just petition SEGA to make a nice huuuuuuge Zillion III on a newer console (or PC, w/e)... maybe 2D labyrinth levels, and 3D bike/adventure levels... perhaps even going from planet to planet in the White Knights' ship? =D Definitely a game I'd love to see make a comeback in the new generation. ;]

Comments: also, all dead end tunnels can be shot to either reveal a hidden bread, or open up the tunnel. You can save a lot of time not having to go through useless rooms by just shooting a dead end tunnel out to the elevator shaft. Good example is after you save apple, you have to backtrack left, then down. In the room down, go left to a dead end, and shoot a tunnel through to the elevator, then go up the elevator. You have just skipped a bunch of rooms that have nothing you should need. There are enough scopes and gun power ups in the game that bypassing these rooms is no big deal, and if you know all the other early game goodies, jj should be lvl 8 by now, and there are plenty of opa opas ahead to get apple there too.

Comments: to get the opa opa with the two walls surrounding it, in that same room, on the right hand wall, there should be a bread canister on a ledge. right above the ledge, shoot the wall. you can tell you hit the right spot because your laser will stop right at the wall, instead of going through it. shoot it a bunch of times, and the walls surrounding the opa opa canister open up. Also, another neat early game trick, when you go down the first elevator into the base, and you come to the first junction to go left or right, go left all the way down the corridor. Stand on the elevator and shoot the left wall a few times. A tunnel should open up, which opens to a room with 2 opa opas in it. (if i remember right its 2, been a while, but theres at least one.)

Comments: Does anyone know any Easter eggs. I have found about 6 secret tunnels and no that holding 1+2+UP when you die will give you infinite continues. A couple things I could never figure out is why when you shoot somes walls a picture of bread pops up. Also, and most frustrating, there is a opa opa(level up) at the top of the grid with two doors on either side. How the hell do you get it!!! There are no code canisters in the screen.

I never rescuing the 3rd teamate (Could never jump to the top level of the scene to save him). Each time I shut the system off I had to start over. If it would have had a save feature I might have saved his life. Im sorry 3rd dude!!! I couldnt reach you in time...but theres always time...time to go back. Twenty yesrs later it still burns me that I had to quit!!!

Comments: What codes? These are just numbers people. anyone who cant memorize 4 numbers in a row should probably go back to school. sure it's repetitive, but the length and variation in the game are nicely balanced so you won't get tired of it until it's almost over. I think this game is about as good as metroid. The lack of depth and variety is outweighed by fast gameplay, great music (metroid's mostly ambient music didn't really do it for me, though i love the super metroid sot) and multiple player characters. A few more enemy types and a couple of save/warp spots would have been nice though.

Comments: Another tough cookie for the SMS. Zillion is a nice Rpg/Adventure/Action-style game. A huge labirynth, friends to rescue, cards and floppy disks to find and tons of enemies and traps. Can't be beaten without drawing a map. Graphics aren't that great, but its a good game, though. Pretty chalenging and addictive.

Comments: This game did not really need paperwork....you just had to realize that the symbols (Most of them anyway)you needed to enter the terminals were simply mirror images of a number. For example, "Map Display", the first command, was simply a 1 with a mirror image of it joined to its left side. That way, no real paperwork, just memorize a four digit number. The only differences where this does not apply is in the case of "4" and "8". But the command for "8" is simply a sideways "8". If anyone knows how they made the symbol for "4", let me know. This game was excellent though.

Comments: I see debate over which is better, Zillion or Metroid. Well, my personal fav is Zillion, but there are valid arguments on both sides. Zillion was more colorful and had more eye candy(SMS had more colors available then the NES, NES games were usually pretty ugly), plus story was cool and it was based off an anime. My light phaser was even based off the Zillion gun, yay! However, metroid was more in-depth and complicated, and had a password system for this. An average Zillion game for me takes between 45 minutes to an hour to beat it, Metroid tons longer, and theres much more to find in Metroid, more items, etc. But for me Zillion is still more fun and less frustrating, it had better graphics, better sound and music, etc. I wish Sega would have kept with it like Nintendo kept with Metroid. Super Metroid for SNES is my fav game of the "exploring big 2D labyrinth" genre. I would have jizzed my pants if there was a Zillion 3 put out for the Genesis, as long as it was more like the original Zillion and not like Zillion 2, since Zillion 2 went away from the 2D labyrinth thing.

Comments: i loved this game. Probably my favorite game. it just had such a great vibe and it was heroic and you were bent on saving your comrades and it felt good when you did. and the ending kicked ass. A save feature would have been nice though--it was such a long and involving game. My brothers and I devised code words for all the freaking symbols; in our mind one of the symbols looked like a butt, another kinda looked like a face, another like a fly; yet another like a heart or number 8. so we'd remember the codes we needed to input by repeating something like: butt face loves eight flies. then the drugs wore off.

Comments: Based on the japanese anime of the same name, Zillion is one of the best examples of how to do a platform/shooter. Definately one of the best SMS games. A save option would have been o.k. but I think thats what gave this game its mystique. I remember leaving my system on all day while i went to school just to get home to find out my mom turned it off!!! From that experience I took my SMS apart and disconnected the LED under the hood and started all over again! Is it me or did Apple have really nice breasts?

Now I am learning some programming in visual c and basic, and my first gaming project is a remake of this game, going to try and get some higher quality mixes of the music, redo the graphics in a higher res, etc, should be easy, not much to the game since its so old school, and no 3d engine required. There should have been a zillion 3 on the genesis or something, in fact i was waiting for one to come out when genesis came out, zillion 2: tri-forfuckingmation shit was dissapointing to say the least.

Comments: Hi, everyone. I used to play this game a lot when I was little. I still remember the day when I first saw it. I had just come home from school, I think, and I walked into the living room and saw it on the TV. I remember seeing J.J. running around and stuff, and I remember thinking the moon looked really neat. One of my brother's friends, Tommy, had let my brother borrow it. Well, when my brother finally left, I got a chance to play it. I fell in love with it right away. I still don't know what about this game is so addictive. It just...is. Like Wulff said, I too still play it now from time to time. Now I play it on the computer on the SMS emulator called Meka. It's funny when you play Zillion on a computer and you go to one of the computers in the game. When you're on the computer screen in Zillion like that, it's like you're looking at a computer on a computer and using a computer to use a computer. LOL! ...Okay, now the word "computer" is starting to sound like it's not a real word. LOL... Computer, computer, computer. :-P I think it's neat to see the different ways some people used to remember the different symbols. With me, I just had a name for each of the symbols like that guy Jason on here said. I think that was actually my brother's idea. I was so young then, only like six or maybe seven or so, so I didn't think of doing that. I'm sure I probably would have if he didn't, though. Anyway, I still remember what all the names for the symbols were, of course. Starting from the left side of the computer and going to the right, it was M, heart, eight, lock, smashed apple, apple, key, backwards, frog and keyhole. Oh, and the BS could mean "bullshit." LOL. :-P My brother actually called the one after the apple a Y instead of a key, but I always called it a key. Heh. Oh, and I also think it's funny that other people on here compared this game to Metroid. I never had an NES when I was little 'cause we got the Sega Master System instead back when those two were the shit, so I didn't get to play the Nintendo games a lot until just the last three years or so when I had access to a computer and discovered emulators. Before then, I only got to play the Nintendo occasionally at a friend's house, and in my fifth grade class, my teacher had a Nintendo in her class, and we got to play it when we were done with all our work. Anyway, I never got to play Nintendo games much, and I haven't played the first or second Metroid very much at all, but I do own a Super Nintendo, and I've played all the way through Metriod 3 a few times, and I also thought it was similar to Zillion. I mean, in Zillion, you have your ship on a planet, and you go underground and go through different rooms and get powerups and get stronger and become able to jump higher and get more powerful guns and stuff, and in Metriod, you do the same thing. Hell, you even finish the game off by having to escape from the place and get back to your ship before it blows up, though in Zillion, you only needed to get aboveground to be safe, unlike in Metriod 3. I even thought that the music it plays in the Metriod games when you're inside a room where there are powerups sounds very similar to the music it plays in Zillion when you're using a computer, you know, the series of "beep-beep-beeps." Sometimes playing Zillion would get me in the mood to play Super Metriod because it's like a more advanced version of Zillion with more bosses and more abilities and more different kinds of powerups and stuff. I also think Super Metriod is neat because it's got water areas and hot places and lava and stuff. That different kind of variety is one of the things Zillion lacks, but I still love it anyway. :-) Whoa, sorry for making this post so long. Anyway, I think Zillion is a great game, and I'm disappointed that there was never a Zillion 3. I thought there was gonna be one because at the end of Zillion 2, it makes it sound like there's gonna be another one. I guess they just did that in case they wanted to make another one. I liked part two, but I definitely liked part one better, though I did think the bike called the Triformation was neat. Love the transforming animation! Reminds me of the Transformers. :-) I think they could make a great third game of Zillion if they combined elements from the first and second one and maybe some elements from Metriod and the cartoon show as well. Speaking of that, I've never seen the cartoon. I want to, though, dang it. Well, anyway, this is a great game worthy of 10 Alex Kidds. PS. I also wanted to say that I think that what that one guy Infamous said about how he used to play it when he was four and that he was so into it that he wanted to change his name to J.J. was very cute. Awww. :-)

Comments: this game is cool. imo, the graphics are bad. but the gameplay really makes up for it. this game is fun. i'd rather play kid icarus for nes though. either way, this is the best side scroller shooter for a sega system.

Comments: damn this game is kewl. It would score a perfect ten if it had some type of save option. It is definately the metroid of the sms, and whether or not those two games borrowed from each other is unknown to me.

Comments: It's a good game, but the music really got hateful after 3 hours. There are not very many music tracks and listening to that same Norsa track over and over again drove me to the point to where I was about to rip my hair out! Otherwise it was a good game. (I listen to music CDs while playing.)

Comments: Ok...so who hear was impressed by the run-cycle in this game? On most 8bit systems you aint gonna find a decent animation...unless it's Prince of Persia. But still. It looked so cool when JJ, Apple, or Champ ran. It wasn't SPECTACULAR but compare to some other games ya know? Of course...the Nosa soldiers sucked stanky dick cheese...

Comments: You all know the first room with the gun upgrade? Well...there's that damned 2nd Level barrel that has walls around it. What the hell is that!? What's in it!!?? I don't know how many people have found this out, because I've never found a code sight or magazine that knows about this. to open up the barriers, simply jump on the ledge to the left of it...squat down...face the wall...and start firing rapidly. After a few shots it will open up and you can get the yummy Level Up that's inside. Don't you just love it when JJ hogs all the power ups and is jumping two screens high when Champ and Apple barely leave the ground? HA! I DO! Also there are tons of other places where you can shoot at the walls and get bread to heal yourself. One last thing...I got the anime at Media Play. I bought all 4 tapes. I'm dying to know what happens...[:(]

Comments: Actually the game was made by Sega themselves...much like Sonic the Hedgehog. Notice that the SMS light gun is the exact same thing as the one in the game? That's because before Sega started making videogames, they were making other things like light guns (like Laser Tag) This gun was their "Zillion" gun and it was so popular that they made a cartoon show that REVOLVED around it. I own the few episodes and OAVs that were published on tape. After that, they sorta became Sega's mascots and let me tell you, the show was #@%#$^ cool!!! You'll all love it, Champ, Apple, JJ, OPA OPA, and AMY are all there. This and Ys are the two best games for the system!

Comments: An OK game. I think I just finished it because I *needed* to finish it and then leave it on the shelf forever. It's a very challenging game. The one thing that annoyed the hell out of me were the symbols used for the computers. I didn't realize they were just mirror-imaged NUMBERS until AFTER I finished the game. Dammit!!

Comments: some how, I jut can't get that much into this game, I kinda like it, but it seems a bit too emense for me, but I don't need a notebook for this one, I just go through the lockers loking at the symbols 3 times or so and make names for them; window, sprinkler, condom, ladder. and I get through. though I do think I need t clearly remember other functins like barier off, open door ect.

Comments: I loved this game and played it for hours. Didn't anyone else realise the the easiest way to remember the symbols was that they were simply the mirror reflections of the numbers 0-9 (with the exception of 4 which is the "money" symbol). Anyway. Great game lots of fun. Daddymonkey.com

Comments: ha! a notebook full of codes! I just had a name for each of the symbols. I remember some of them were "eight" (for the one that looked like an eight), "eight-side" (for the horizontal eight), "money" (for the one that was the money symbol in Alex Kidd), etc. It was easy to remember them that way. What an awesome game. I remember not really using the two other people (Apple and someone?) unless I had to, because by the time I found them, the main guy was powerful.

Comments: I use to play this game all the time when i use to have a sega master system back in the days. I had like a notebook full of codes from each room. I don't know whatever happened to my old sega master system... i think it broke or something and my parents had to throw it out... or they probably sold it at a yard sale... who knows... but i just recently bought a sega master system off ebay and also the zillion game and i still can't stop playing the game... now i have a new notebook full of codes... Zillion will allways be a classic... such a great game!!!
