In Zip Zap you area severely damaged robot with a motor that won't turn off and only limited braking power, so you tend to travel in circles. A teleport delivers you (nice graphic) into a swirling mass of miserable aliens from whose deadly touch you are partly protected by a failing shield. The idea is to buzz chaotically around in confusing circles to collect four power units. When you touch one it automatically attaches itself to the teleportal, When all four are in position you can get back to the teleportal in time. By Imagine's standards, not their best game, but still better than most games around. Joystick: Kempston, AGF, Protek, Fuller.
