About This Game

BE A KING RATHER THAN EXPERT


The sequel to Toaplan’s legendary vertically scrolling shoot ‘em up masterpiece Truxton brings even more intense hardcore space action. Truxton II is one of the hardest Toaplan games with higher difficulty than its predecessor. The thrilling insane action is unforgiving and appealing to the most hardened shmup veterans. Casual players who dare to play Truxton II can at least take solace in the added easy mode, and the modern features of rewind and quick save that gives a fighting chance to advance through the quick bullet rain and tough bosses.

“The visuals are freaking amazing, not just for their time, but even by today’s standards. It’s one of the coolest looking games ever made.”Shmup Junkie

The story of Truxton II:
“During the time of the grand battle known as Tatsujin, another battle was being fought in a remote area of the infinite universe, with similar stakes. The battle was known as Tatsujin Oh.”
