FEEL THE BLAST!
Blast off and attack the evil Bydo Empire. Use everything in your arsenal to take them down – don’t be shy! It's retro, it's fun and it's a “10” on the difficulty scale. Finish this masterpiece and carve your name amongst the greats!
INCLUDES THE ORIGINAL FEATURES…
Remember how damnably difficult R-Type was? Well it still is, because we stayed true to the original, just the way you remember it! Choose between two difficulty settings, utilize two different control options and soar through eight jam-packed levels, each with its own unique boss. Upgrade to new weapons, power-ups, and attachments as you battle wave after wave of enemies.

What's New in Version 2.0.3

Fixed minor bugs.
Thrilling adventure that awards you some serious bragging rights!
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!
Bullet Heaven Perfection
There are games in every console that define the generation. R-Type is one of those games. While I play I cannot help but think of the hours my girlfriend and I would spend pouring into this game, just to 1-Up the other.
When it comes to side scroller shooters, R-Type is, and always will be, the king.
Best childhood game ever
I am so glad that R-Type finally made it to the iPad. This was my favorite game of all when growing up and have been trying to find it for the newer system. My wait is done and I am overjoyed. I feel like a child opening presents on Christmas Day.
