FZ Senki Axis (FZ戦記AXIS), called Final Zone in the US, is a 1990 game by Wolf Team for the Sega Mega Drive and Sharp X68000. Awkwardly it is a sequel to the Japanese-only Final Zone II (itself a sequel to a 1986 game called Final Zone), meaning it is the third in the Final Zone series and the first (and only) Final Zone game to be released in North America.

Gameplay

You are a mech placed in several isometric-projection levels and your goal is to destroy a fixed number of targets without dying once. A shoots your main weapon (with rapidfire), B shoots your sub weapon (with no rapidfire), and C opens a menu where you can select weapons. When firing, you cannot change direction (that is, moving around will not cause you to turn around).
