Out Zone is one of the absolute most playable Toaplan games, second only to Flying Shark! As usual with Toaplan games the gameplay is incredibly well polished and it will take a good number of quarters to get through the game.
The game allows up to two players simultaneously, the actual playing is quite similar to a plane/spaceship shooter but you are a one or two hero team with a mission to reach the end and kill all enemies on the way.
The game opens with the player(s) being dropped off somewhere on a planet invaded by robots with the helpful text "We hope you destroy them all! Stand by ready ? Goodluck!!!"

The most impressive sections of the game contains small mazes where robots are lined up so that they help eachother, something very few games even today manage to do.
Music and sound created by Tatsuya Uemura.
Alexandre Lefebvre hints that you can get hidden powerups if you play skillfully and get very far into the game without dying. For example you can achieve the Truxton ship to assist you!
