App 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. Its 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 ITS EASY TO BEAT? THINK AGAIN!
It might be retro, but R-Type is still famously hard to master. Its do-or-die all the way through every level. Thats why IGN ranks R-Type in its all-time Top 10 Toughest Games to Beat!

Wow, this is definitely a hard game. Have anyone even bothered with it since the sequel came out?
