While never quite so popular as ''Videogame/SpaceInvaders'' or Namco's own ''Videogame/{{Galaga}}'', ''Bosconian'' nevertheless enjoys a strong following and is available on multiple iterations of ''Namco Museum'', Plug N' Play TV games, and other retrogaming collections. UsefulNotes/{{Famicom}} space sim ''Star Luster'' has some connections to ''Bosconian'', and Japanese arcades also saw a VerticalScrollingShooter sequel/spin-off called ''Blast Off''.

As was common back in the day, gameplay was fairly simple: The player took control of his rocket and blasted off to destroy menacing green space stations, asteroid swarms and frighteningly competent enemy ships. More than a mere ''{{Galaxian}}'' knock-off, ''Bosconian'' was unique in that it gave the player not only total directional control over his spaceship, but also the ability to fire additional shots from the aft of the ship.
