Truxton is a vertically scrolling arcade video game shoot-em-up featuring 8 levels with non-stop action and 5 bosses.

After surviving an attack on the player's cargo barge, players board and pilot one remaining fighter and challenge the aliens in a desperate attempt to quell the alien invasion and divert their asteroid fortresses in the process.
