"Zoom!" is a puzzle game released by Discovery Software in 1988. It features a 3D-like board the player moves around on. Up to two players may play simultaneously.

Gameplay

The game has 6 stages with 6 levels in each stage. The levels feature a board with gridlines on it that the player walks on. The lines are painted as the player walks on them. If the player paints all four edges of a square in the grid, the square flashes indicating it has been filled. All the squares must be filled to complete the level.

The player controls a character named Zoomer, who is constantly moving. Various monsters will appear in the levels. Some chase the player while others do other things such as erasing the lines the player has filled. Zoomer can shoot a ball from the back which can knock monsters backwards upon being struck by it.

Several items appear randomly in levels. Some of which simply add points while others may slow down monsters, render the player invincible, or even instantly clear the level.
