Zanac is an arcade-style video game; a vertically scrolling shooter. It was designed by Compile, who went on to develop a number of classic shooters, including Blazing Lazers for the TurboGrafx 16. Zanac's first release was for the MSX computer in Japan. It was then released for the Famicom Disk System in Japan on November 28, 1986, and in the United States on the Nintendo Entertainment System in October 1987.
