Any Zenji fans?

I like Zenji. I’ve never gotten very far with it. The music is rather cute. I’ve played the ColecoVision version a bit more than the 5200 version, and I’ve got copies of each. It was released at the tail end of Activision’s heyday prior to the crash. I recall finding it uninteresting in Toys R Us in 1984 due to its non-flashy box and lack of marketing. It seemed like puzzlers were “in” but obviously they failed to captivate an audience during this period.
 

This one has been often overlooked, but you’ve inspired me to fire it up again! :)

I thought the box was pretty artsy looking.  The cartridge looked really cool. Supposedly Zenji CIB is for sale over 100 bucks in eBay.

 

The music of Zenji and Pengo have similar vibes even though the music are different imo.
