Zero Zap (Texas Instruments TI-99/4A review)

Developer: Milton Bradley
Publisher: Milton Bradley
Released: 1979

Zero Zap is a pinball style game that was among the launch titles for the TI-99 computer.

+ Three different field layouts are available to give the game some semblance of longevity and variety.

+ Can be marginally enjoyable in two-player mode where top score bragging rights are the order of the day.

+ Allows you to create your own playing fields and the best part is that you can save them to a cassette for future loading.

- Shifting point totals for the diamond targets is completely random, valuing luck over skill-based gameplay.

- Almost zero depth to the proceedings and what's here features very little input from the player.

- Has a lot in common with Tiger Electronics LCD handhelds where apathy quickly sets in due to poor gameplay.

- Moving the cursor to line up a shot is agonisingly slow and becomes a real drag the more you play.
