Retro and SHMUP fans rejoice! EA Mobile will be bringing one of the classic and best SHMUPs of all time in R-Type. It looks like most of the original content of the game is preserved:
“R-Type for iPhone keeps 100% true to the original game allowing fans to get back to the ‘80s video-arcade experience in the palm of their hands.”
- Blast off and strike the evil Bydo Empire. Pilot a futuristic fighter, the R-9a “Arrowhead,” and attack wave after wave of Bydo baddies in old-school side-shooter style
- Wide variety of different power ups and ship upgrades
- Includes original arcade game features including eight unique levels with 8 different bosses each and three different controls – tilt, touch and virtual D-Pad
- 3 different control modes and multiple difficulty modes
There’s no announced release date or pricing. However, I’m positive this comes out this month.
