Brief Description

Truxton action The best Toaplan space shoot'em-up. The game plays like Flying Shark but is placed in space. Your mission is as usual to destroy all enemies and reach the end. The game is very popular, although Flying Shark plays better and has better graphics.

The music was composed by Masahiro Yuge, who also did the music for Truxton 2.

The Japanese version is very similar, the main differance is the Tatsujin ("Expert") name.

Truxton/Tatsujin was converted to SEGA Genesis and PC Engine. The PC Engine plays more like the original game than the SEGA version.
