A CLASSIC OLD-SCHOOL GAME
R-Type II is a horizontal scrolling shooter arcade game developed and published by Irem in 1989. This classic old-school game is the sequel to R-Type and the story takes place two years after. The player controls a ship called the R-9C which is an improved version of its predecessor, the R-9.

My original review text follows:
I have not yet tried this using a 3rd party controller but I am very pleased it supports them.
The native controls come in two flavours. The D-pad based one is, personally speaking, unworkable. But the other (where you slide your finger across the screen to position the ship) is actually very good. It's not as precise as Cave's Deathsmiles -- or, to be more accurate, it feels like it needs to be a tad more sensitive to match up to the tight manoeuvring required by this game.
Graphically and aurally, this port is spot on.
This is a fun but extremely challenging game.
Used to play this back in the day maybe 20 years ago or more. It's still the same and I think it's fxxking awesome I'm gonna have addictive fun trying to complete this. Wicked game!!! Only bad point? The graphics are dated but then that's cause the game is over 20 years old so still gonna give it 5🌟s
Used to be great
Until invincible mode was enabled, everyone who had the game would have completed it by now! I couldn't believe there were so few levels, it was a difficult game without invincible mode and kinda frustrating but it was a breeze when the mode was enabled. It's such a shame as the game was really cool :(
