Description

“5/5! …LOOKS, SOUNDS AND FEELS EXACTLY AS IT DID IN THE ARCADE…” (Andy Boxall, iPhoneFreak.com) Get back to the ‘80s video-arcade experience with “a Must Have classic shooter that will chew you up and spit you out, ” according to Robert Downey of slidetoplay.com. 100% true to the original side-scroller shoot ‘em up, see what has critics and retro gaming fans freaking out!

ESSENTIAL ‘80S ARCADE GAMEPLAY. NO TOKENS REQUIRED.

Why mess with a classic? R-Type for iPhone & iPod touch stays true to its roots, re-capturing the look and feel of one of the biggest arcade game hits from back in the day.

A REAL BLAST FROM THE PAST

Blast off and strike the evil Bydo Empire! Pilot your futuristic fighter, the R-9a “Arrowhead, ” and attack wave after wave of Bydo baddies in old-school side-shooter style. It’s the relentlessly challenging R-Type just the way you remember it!

INCLUDES ALL THE FEATURES OF THE ORGINAL

Fly through 8 levels with 3 different control options – tilt, touch, and virtual D-pad. Play in two difficulty levels. Upgrade with new weapons, power-ups, and attachments. Defeat 8 unique bosses in awesome battles, too.

THINK IT’S EASY TO BEAT? THINK AGAIN!

It might be retro, but R-Type is still famously hard to master. It’s do-or-die all the way through every level. That’s why IGN ranks R-Type in its all-time Top 10 “Toughest Games to Beat”!

2/5 stars

Not bad needs work

:
There is one issue with the game the touch screen. When using the touch method your finger covers the ship so you can't see what's going to hit you . Make it so it's like some of the other jet games. You can use your finger to controll but you can also see the ship your finger doesn't cover it . the rest of the optional contolls are just horrible. Tilt just moves the ship to slow and the other version makes the scree tiny. So just fix the touch version and you'll have yourself five stars. Otherwise a good game

5/5 stars

Blast from the past :)

:
This game brings back good memories of hours and quarters wasted away in a video arcade. Graphics-wise, nothing has changed too much which makes it ideal for retro gamers who are looking for the same side-scrolling coin-op action of days gone by. Playability, however, is pretty impressive. I love the Tilt & Touch mode which enabled movement by simply tilting the iPhone in the desired direction. Bundle that with the auto-fire feature and you're all set for hours of easy going fun.

My only issue is that the size of the iPhone screen makes it tricky to maneuver the craft around the limited space, especially in tight spaces and when you're faced with a hail of bullets and enemy ships. I guess this adds to the thrill and challenge, but it can get quite tricky. Fortunately, it's easy to master since the enemies spawn from the same locations!

Aside from this, the game is amazing. It's easy to pick up and difficult to put down. Whether or not you're familiar with R-Type, this is a must-have for shoot 'em up fans. Totally enjoyable :)

4/5 stars

Great game

:
This game is awesome. Would be five stars but the controls need some work.
