5.0 out of 5 stars It's super hard, but super fun! May 13, 2008

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever heard of a company called Toaplan? If yes, then you'll know that those fellows knew how to make a good game, games inundated with fun for all and- Okay, I'll be honest with you, Toaplan had a sick sense of humor when it came to shoot em' ups. Most of the shooters they made were inundated with charm to the point where if you're a child of the 1980's and had fond memories of the early 90's you'll instantly fall in love with the game, but Toaplan knew just how to make a game like Truxton hard. One was their use of checkpoints and two, their use of REGRESSIVE checkpoints. I think they're the only company I've seen where they'll make a game where every time you start over at a checkpoint and get killed in the first few seconds, you GO BACK a checkpoint! I'm not making this up!

Yet despite this, I really can't help but tell you all about this game, it's one of the the most unintentionally cutest and simultaneously challenging shooter you'll play on the Genesis (second only to maybe Fantasy Zone) and the difficulty is balanced somewhat by the large bounty of lives you get.

Some of the weapons are quite fun like the title weapon being a large stream of blue, electric BOOGIE LIGHTNING, plus a green, fast firing, ultra powered laser blaster and the average red as a rose Vulcan shot which actually upgrades to probably the best weapon in the game (like in every other vertical scrolling shooter) seeing how it provides the only shield in the game for you once upgraded, but it only protects you from kamikazes which is a Godsend in this game because you get SWAMPED with suicidal aliens.

The music is just... charming, really. I don't know how else to describe it, it just sounds fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truxton rocks!!! May 2, 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Truxton is an excellent shmup for the Sega Genesis! The graphics are impressive for the hardware. I enjoy playing with an official Sega licensed joystick for that authentic arcade feel. The music is also exceptional including appropriate sound effects. The power ups make you a force to reckon with to the constant onslaught of enemies. A giant skull fills the screen when you use a bomb. I highly recommend this game to retro gamers and fans of games like Raiden and Twin Bee.
