5.0 out of 5 stars R-Type A Classic Arcade Game. 19 Mar 2013
By Raven TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This classic is true to the original, graphics play and sound.
Control ship by moving finger on screen or keypad.
There is a firing and module button, option for continuous fire.
It is not an easy game to play, especially when you reach the bosses.
You need quick reflexes and collect as many power ups and modules
as you can. There are extra lives to help
One of my favourites, great app for my collection and is still
enjoyable to play.
Highly recommended for any classic arcade players.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but frustrating! 4 May 2013
By Mr. Gareth I. Davies VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
This all looks, sounds and plays exactly as I remember it. Alas, it is also frustratingly hard. No new easy setting here just normal or hard and normal is tough enough. I have been stuck on level two for ages. The controls do work well but many times the need to drag the ship around means your own hand hides where the enemies will pop up and kill you yet again. That said I do keep coming back to it in the hope that this time i might just make it!
