Never owned a ColecoVision and Zaxxon myself but remember it on display on the department store TVs.
Tried the game yesterday, but damn, was the isometric scrolling always that jerky or are we spoiled these days or does memory play us tricks in the old days?

Yes, tried it too recently and I am a complete nut with that isometric view, I always crashed into things that were clearly not there Tongue out

I have to give it another kick soon ...

Same problems here too.Always difficult to estimate height and direction of things coming at you.

Another isometric horror is "Safecracker" from Imagic for Intellivision.It is nearly impossible to drive straight along the streets with this "lovely" controller Tongue out.Will never be a good player on that one... 

Gruß an Dieter und alle Retro-Fans!

haha yes, but kilometers better than the Zaxxon they released for the Atari 2600 - that was a complete joke. at least the Atari hardware had decent scrolling though.
