About The Game

"BOSCONIAN" is a shooter released by NAMCO (Bandai Namco Entertainment) in 1981.

Take control of a space patrol fighter and take down the space pirate BOSCONIAN!

Enemy bases can be destroyed by destroying all of their turrets or by firing missiles into the centre of the base, which will cause a massive explosion.

Destroy all the enemy bases in a round to clear each stage.

The "Arcade Archives" series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces.

Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores.

Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.
