An accurate remake of the IREM classic.
Finally, a good flash remake of R-Type, but it could use a few improvements. Firstly, using shift, space, and ctrl is really outdated considering that a lot of Flash games use the letter keys for player commands. I think you could learn how to assign the fire and force keys to those, that would make this even better. Second, is it just me, or does this game seem to feel slower than the actual arcade version? Other than that, you did a great job on importing the music, graphics, and game mechanics. However, you might want to consider optimizing your game in some way because three megabytes on two levels seems to be a bit inefficient considering that OCD+ had a lot of content for a 2.3 MB file.
What I do like:
-Finally, a praiseworthy remake of R-Type
-Great job on importing the sprites, music, and gameplay.
What I don't like:
-Needs a better key configuration.
-Filesize seems a bit big for a two level demo
-Seems slower than the real thing.
-Flash resolution could be a bit smaller.
Overall: A good remake, but with some minor adjustments, it would be excellent. Here's an eight out of ten for the effort resulting in a good result.
