R-type coming soon to app store
EA are releasing R-Type for iPhone shortly

Remember R-Type from back in the day? We have recently been playing the true retro version of this so fingers crossed that EA have managed to capture the spirit of the original. Not much in the way of details at the moment but here is what the press release from EA had to say about this upcoming release.

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.

Features include:

  • 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

Sounds pretty good eh? we will let you know more when we hear from EA, in the meantime, take a peek at the few screenshots below.
