Stargoose is a shoot 'em up with eight levels. The game takes place on the surface of an alien planet. The player's character, called Scouser-Gitt, has been hired by some kind of "tribal elder" to steal six jewels from each level. "I want to get me mitts on them" is all the justification the elder ever gives.
The levels in Stargoose scroll continuously upwards, repeating themselves over and over again until either the player completes the level or his vehicle is destroyed (this can be seen as the levels being toroid-shaped). The player's vehicle is armed with a forward-facing machine gun and two side-mounted missiles. The enemies come in three forms: stationary mines, moving vehicles and gun or missile turrets.
Stargoose is noted for its music, composed by Fred Gray.
