Zanac is one of those space shooter games in which you are trying to save the earth, or something like that.

Due to the highly repetitive nature of this game, the author uses the hidden 9th input button (the console's Reset button) in order to warp to the last level. This results in an unsually long grey screen at the start of the movie as the author mashes 'Reset'. Starting on the final level with only the initial pea-shooter for a weapon normally makes the game impossible to win.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
