CPU構成[Z80 (3)] 音源チップ[Namco, Samples]

もはや説明などいらないのではないかと思うが、アーケードゲーム史の金字塔「ゼビウス」である。 当時のハードウェアは、 お世辞にも表現力が高いとはいえないスペックであったが、 キャラクターをグレー系の配色で統一し、さらに光源を統一するという手法で、美しいグラフィックを描き出すことに成功している。 また、隠れキャラクターのソルやスペシャルフラッグの存在も忘れてはならない。 なお、このゲームは後に「ドルアーガの塔」などを製作する遠藤雅伸氏によるものである。

Xevious (c) 1982 Namco.

The player pilots a combat aircraft called a 'Solvalou' which is armed with a forward-firing gun for aerial targets, and bombs for destroying ground-based targets. A red targeting square is situated in front of the Solvalou, which allows the player to aim their bombs accurately. The enemy craft appears in a number of different guises; from the standard variety that arrive in large numbers but shoot slow-moving projectiles, to exploding black spheres that shoot projectiles at high speed. There are also rotating shields that cannot be destroyed and must be carefully avoided. Ground enemies are a combination of both stationary bases and moving vehicles, most of which fire slow-moving projectiles. A gigantic, floating fortress (called 'Andor Genesis') appears in certain areas; this is defeated by knocking out its core.

Xevious is actually divided into 16 different areas, which are separated by an area of forest. If a player dies before less than 70% of an area has been completed, play restarts at the beginning of the same area; should a life be lost AFTER 70% of an area has been completed, however, play restarts at the beginning of the next area. After Area 16 has been completed, the game loops back to Area 7.
