Please post scores for Truxton II in the new high score thread.

Tatsujin Oh/Truxton II has to be my favorite shooter from Toaplan! I didn't see a thread for this game, so I thought i'd test some of your skills and see what you have! My best so far is listed below. I'll update as my score improves.


Standard JP PCB settings:

    3 lives
    1 credit of course
    Please note weither you are using MAME or the PCB.

Truxton 2 would be a great game if it didn't drag on forever...it takes like 20 minutes just to reach the 2nd boss. I have more fun trying to fast-forward everything (and failing miserably).

I can barely tell which stage I'm on due to the nigh seamless stage transition.

At some point I actually thought about trying to speedrun this game, it might be possible. Memorize where all the powerups are, stop to kill the most dangerous enemies and skip all the bosses except the first, third and the last one. It'd be pretty fun to watch.

You can skip bosses? How so? I didn't even know one could speedrun a shmup at all.

This game actually uses three buttons: shot, bomb and fast forward.

Now that I think about it, this 'feature' might explain why the stages are so damn long.

Too bad you lose points for using fast-forward. The enemies come at you in much more interesting patterns but there's absolutely no scoring benefit to it that I can see.

Also, lol @ shooting all the way through a stage while the previous boss is still around.

Edit: Pretty bad score in this here 15 minutes of play but at least I beat the default highscore. Who started this thread, lgb?

Ed Oscuro - 172,100 - 2 - MAME

I remember spending a LOT of time on the first stage and boss back in a previous version of MAME. Nowadays we have it easy - savestates don't mess up the graphics.

More importantly I learned to drop the terrible blue weapon. Holy crap, that's unbalanced - for the questionable benefit of having two retarded blue tracking lasers you trade away all your power. I beat the first boss the first time I got to it (two panic bombs though, the first one not necessary at all), and a second time I nearly no-bombed it (died though).

The red napalm subweapon, as I've said before, does have a down moment inbetween shots, but it does incredible damage point-blank if you can direct two or more streams on a single enemy, and the two back streams helps you keep junk off your tail.

But, ultimately, the game is still a pure memorizer; I died near the beginning of the second stage when the tons of fast purple (I think) ships drop down to the middle of the screen. On my next lives I beat them all by staying at the bottom center of the screen, but died trying to get my powerup level back.

Ugh, I play this game just like I do Gradius: restart when I die because there's no point trying to recover.

Dunno. He's still around here, last posts yesterday. Dunno why he's avoided the topic for so long.

Shame there are no decent replays of this game during 2nd loop phase. Only two gamers in japan 2nd looped the japanese version which i believe is one player only like original truxton.

Are you talking about jblx3's run? It's pretty good, but you can't see much of the 2nd loop, sadly.

Someone should take over this thread, robivy64 doesn't seem too interested in maintaining it. And this game definitely needs saparate tables for Euro and Japan versions, the differences are huge. Most likely all MAME-submitted scores are from Euro version (mine is).

EDIT: HOLY SHIT!
