This is one of my all-time favorite games on an Atari system! Never thought about playing it with a 2600 Joystick though, I'm gonna have to try that out.

This and Ikari Warriors and Commando were THE reasons I got a 7800. I LOVE Xevious. Played the hell out of it at the local bowling ally back in the day. I really like the Atari 8-bit version too, but not as good as the 7800. A home-brew arcade perfect version is going to be released soon for the Jaguar! I can't wait!!

Great game.  What do they call those spinning wall things that you can't shoot?  They look really nice on the 7800 version.

Though using one button for both firing functions can be done, I much prefer having individual control.  Still a neat feature to have. :)
