Zaxxon Super Game, casually known as Super Zaxxon (not to be confused with the official Super Zaxxon), is a version of Zaxxon for the Coleco Adam computer. It was released in 1984 exclusively in North America.

Originally planned for release on the ColecoVision (utilising the scrapped "Super Game Module" peripheral), Zaxxon Super Game takes advantage of the Adam's superior technical specifications to bring back many of the features missing in the "standard" ColecoVision version of the game. Extra content aside, it is mostly identical to the ColecoVision version of the game, and does not add anything not seen in the original arcade version of Zaxxon.

Zaxxon Super Game was only officially released on compact cassette, however it was unofficially adapted and sold on a cartridge in August 2012.
