Zoom! Game Free Download & Install Guide

Author: Glenn Scrima

Zoom is an interesting 3D arcade like strategy game from the late 80's. You control a ball that you move across the map filling in blank square spaces. At the same time you are being pursued by enemies. The being chased and avoiding enemies part feels a little like when you play Pac-Man. It is a much different game though otherwise.
