Sanxion was Thalamus' first game for the C64, designed and programmed by Stavros Fasoulas, a Finnish independent programmer. It is a horisontal scrolling shooter that was for its time very quick. The lower part (about 2/3rds) of the game screen consists of a sideview while the smaller upper part showed a top down view. The bar separating the two views contains the game info like score and number of lives left.
The music, both the loading music and the title music, was composed by Rob Hubbard. The title music was a version of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.
The game was converted to the ZX Spectrum in 1989.
