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.

What's New in Version 1.0.3
Disabled invincible mode.
Fixed minor bugs.
Surprisingly good port
I don't have faith in touch controls for old classics but this surprised me. It's not perfect and it's not exactly the same but it is enough that I'm having a lot of fun reliving the game on the go! The controls would benefit from a sensitivity setting. Otherwise, graphics are smooth, only minor slowdowns occasionally when lots of stuff is happening. You can set the graphics filter and interlaced modes on or off. Nicely done and well worth the .99c on the holiday special!
I loved R-type growing up. I was never really that good, but it was still always fun.
I'm glad you guys made this friendly with the Moga ace controller. It works really well with it. It's one of the reasons I bought rtype 2 even though I already had the first one from you guys.
My only complaint is that the game doesn't disable auto lock. After a minute my phone goes to sleep since I haven't touched the physical screen. I can just disable auto lock manually, but its a bit of a pain to remember.
This was my favorite game in my local arcade at college. I played it all the time. Now I can play it on my phone and remember those sweaty evenings, feverishly pounding on the Fire button, thinking how foolish it was that I wasn't working on my paper that was due in twelve hours.
