  • 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.
  • Got the score 61570 in MAME. This was my first live stream to YouTube.

  • 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.
