The arcade version of X Trench Run is widely available in many different countries. The turrets must be destroyed, and you must avoid getting hit by them.
To go across the trench, the player must change their pace and heading. They have to zigzag around the obstacles and dodge the approaching bullets. The player's spacecraft features a laser gun. There is both a single-player campaign and a multiplayer option in which players compete in real time in X Trench Run.
