    This game has checkpoints, so it is an actual challenge to complete with infinite continues.

    There is a big tank boss! I love a good big tank boss. This is one of the earlier examples of that trope.

    While waiting for our demo to be shown at TRSAC 2015, I'm failing miserably at Truxton. I'm hopelessly stuck at the big tank, and it's murdering me again and again.

    Another Toaplan core was added to my MiSTer when I enabled unofficial theypsilon cores. I've been thinking about how shoot 'em ups should ideally be played with your dominant hand on the stick. I'm right handed, so I experimented with setting up flipped controls, and rotated my MadCatz FightStick so the stick is on the right. I'm not sure I love it, but I could practice a bit more and see if I can get used to it.
