IXION - Atari 2600



TV Type:  NTSC        PAL50        PAL60      

You are an elite competitor in the IXION Robot Combat League. Manning the remote controls of a high-tech, missile-firing speed machine, your vehicle tears across the floor of an arena, locked in combat with your opponents. But you can't just drive anywhere - there are gaping chasms in the floor, and more of the arena can fall away at any time! Worse still, you're outnumbered - two to one! Fortunately you have a special weapon at your disposal - the Kailo Sphere - which not only takes out enemies, but also rebuilds the arena floor, allowing you to span those deadly gaps.

During Combat Rounds, you must drive over glowing targets in order to spell out IXION high above the arena floor. If you survive long enough to do that, you enter a special Bonus Round where you must master the use of Kailo Spheres. Succeed, and you'll become a legend! Fail... and you'll be just another long-forgotten footnote in the epic saga of IXION.

IXION is a previously unreleased prototype (itself based on an obscure arcade game) finally seeing the light of day in cartridge form! We've produced a high-quality package consisting of a professionally printed box, accordion style manual, and even used SEGA cartridge shells for the game in order to mimic how the game may have appeared had it been released "back in the day". Also included is a 10" x 14" IXION poster, as well as an IXION magnet (see below).

If that weren't enough, we've even created a more challenging version of the game titled IXION ULTRA with all new levels! Both versions of the game are included and can be selected with a menu when you fire up the game.


When you master all IXION has to offer, switch to IXION ULTRA, a more challenging version of IXION with all new levels! Here are some of the changes in IXION ULTRA:

  • Only three VCRs to start with
  • Less time to finish a round
  • Player missile range reduced
  • Kailo Sphere range reduced
  • Enemies shoot more frequently
  • Enemies' shots are faster
  • Enemies regenerate faster
  • Enemies' targeting is faster
  • Harder Scoring
  • New Level Layouts
  • Enhanced Game Graphics

You can select between IXION and IXION ULTRA using the joystick or SELECT switch on your game console when the game is first powered on. You can return to the menu anytime by pressing SELECT and RESET at the same time.
