It's doable, but it needs a very good programmer
The game is indeed really nice but it doesn't have that many objects moving on screen compared to Truxton 2. These occupy only a small fraction of the screen at all times. It gives the impression to be chock full of moving stuff but it isn't.
Truxton on the other hand often has way over 30% of the screen covered by just the player weapons especially with the blue laser one.

You need more than a good programmer to modify 50% of an 8 bpl screen on a 1200, you need additional hardware.
