Thrilling adventure that awards you some serious bragging rights!

TophMidna (Gamestak.com)

An all time classic, finally returns to the iPad in full HD, and beautiful frame rates. Preferred for those who don't mind spending days at a time trying to beat a single level, and not preferred for those who aren't determined to beat each insanely difficult stage. Super neat power-ups, super cool ship attachments, super hard enemies. Each stage is set in a entirely different world, so you won't be getting bored of them (unless, of coarse, your stuck there because you don't have the skill).

IF YOU WANT A REAL CHALLENGE, go for R-Type, you'll be sitting there learning from mistake after mistake after mistake! Test yourself and have fun while doing it!

Finally back on iOS!

T-800 model 101

I just upgraded to the 5S from a 4S, and now the game is stretched! It makes it unplayable for me. There should be empty areas on the sides for wide devices. That would help with the general difficulty of playing horizontal shooters on touch screens. There's still a charge shot delay which makes the stage 6 boss a bit harder, and for some reason even if you lift your finger and immediately put it back, it sometimes won't fire. Fix the screen so I can play this again, please. I still haven't gotten the #1 score yet.

Old Times Are New Again

Over the years I have looked for this game... Finally found it here for ipad and bought it instantly!

I thought I would be bored with it after a few hours.. But No... I play it a lot and it's been a few. Chances are your like me if you found this game in that you played it in the Arcade. And if you played it in the arcade I'm sure you spent Quite A Bit more than it costs here so just buy it.. You won't be disappointed considering that.
