Collect Z-Coins During Play
Always be on the look-out for free currency, and tilt the ship to collect the different patterns of Z-Coins that Sega displays on-screen. Easy money.
Spend Coins On Upgrades
These helpful items give you a big assist while playing Zaxxon Escape. Even better, you can perform upgrades to make each one stronger. Just keep in mind said upgrades grow more expensive.
-Auto Pilot: Enable your ship to travel faster and auto-steer.
-Cloaking Device: Increase the duration of the Cloaking Device to 15 seconds.
-Z-Coin Values: Unlock Double Z-Coins after 2,000m.
-Score Multiplier: Unlock the Score Multiplier power-up.
-Super Z-Coin: Unlock the Super Z-Coin worth 50 Z-Coins.
-Tractor Beam: Automatically collect Z-Coins as you get near them.
-Weapons System: Allows two missiles to be active at once.
Don't Forget About Utilities
Power-ups are cool, but the following Utilities also prove useful in a pinch.
-Second Chance: Repair your ship immediately after crashing (max: two per run).
-Light Speed Boost: Activate Light Speed for a 2,000m head start.
-Warp Speed Boost: Activate Warp Speed for a 5,000m head start.
Maneuver Well Ahead Of Time
When you can help it, don't maneuver the ship at the last possible second. Instead, quickly note upcoming terrain and make a move beforehand. And if you can, plan at least another move ahead.
Swipe When You See Green
During play, you'll come upon a bunch of red arrows. When those arrows turn green, quickly swipe in the desired/specified direction to avoid smacking into a wall.
Re-center Screen Before Swiping
Always a good idea when, in mid-tilt, to re-center the screen before swiping up/down/left/right to avoid the game misreading your intended command.
Don't Forget To Warm Up The Cannon
At certain points, you may need to blow up an upgrade like the shield to activate it, or blast through a door. When promoted, tap the screen to fire.
