Fun times

I had super r-type for the snes. This makes me happy. I also have the high score boom shacka lacka. Ace is the name
The only thing that bothered me was didn't the orange ball have a call back command? I hated chasing after it :(

Good point. I'll add this feature in next Stage. But you must know this game is quite detailed, and I do not have time to implement all of them. I spent almost 5 month to develop this First Stage (I am just hobby developer).


never played this game as a kid but still reminds me of that era, good job.


Me and my GF talked for hours... HOURS about R-type and ways to beat each other ( Even though there was only 1 way, she MADE SURE there was a different strat thatn what I was doing lol)

This is the best game EVER!!! What did everyone think of R-Type Final?


So fucking adictive!!!! >;D

Love R-Type

I used to play this all the time as a kid, it's good to see I suck at it now as much as I did then! :D

koriblik responds:

The same for me. I remember myself (14 years old) as I spent 7 hours with my Sinclair ZX Spectrum to beat the game. Original game is the most difficult game I ever played.
