達人王 © 1992 Toaplan Company, Limited.
Gameplay is similar to the previous Tatsujin. Tatsujin Oh has six huge areas, each with a boss at the end; the game "loops" these six areas forever. Lives are given out at 70000 points, then every 200000 points after; players start with three.
There are power-ups to increase ship speed, add a smartbomb to your stock, and change/strengthen your current weapon. Red fires bombs in a small area around your ship, blue is a homing laser, and green fires wide-reaching salvos of green shots.

Toaplan Company, Limited was a video game developer from Japan. They were responsible for the creation of a wide array of relatively famous scrolling shooters and other arcade games. The company declared bankruptcy in 1994.
As with many Toaplan games, the original Japanese version is harder than export versions. Truxton II is like the original Truxton, where all regional versions are on a single board, controlled by a jumper; anything labeled Tatsujin Oh will be harder than anything labeled "Truxton II" (Europe and USA versions).
