EUROGAMER (Rating 9/10):
"rRootage Online is why Kenta Cho releases his games in the way he does; it's now got a chance to hit a new audience, and be enjoyed by many more people, in what feels like the definitive version."
APP SPY (Rating: 4/5):
"...for those who consider themselves fans of the shmup genre, this is without a doubt a must buy."
"Anyone who enjoys a nice 2D shooter should grab this one instantly."
WHATSONIPHONE (Rating: 4.5/5):
"rRootage is a classic game faithfully rendered on the iphone"
"rRootage offers much more variety than the typical App Store shoot-’em-up [...]. Shooter fans should definitely check this one out."
"The fact that this gem is available on the App Store is great news."
"If R-Type was too simple for you, or DoDonPachi Resurrection was something you completed with one eye closed while doing one handed pushups, then this is worthy of your time and money."

Control your ship and avoid the barrage. Use the laser to destroy the battleship of the enemy. You can cause more damage if you fire the laser close to the enemy. When all ships are destroyed, the game is over. The ship extends at 200,000 and every 500,000 points.
. Normal Mode
This is the standard game mode.
- Special -> Bomb
The bomb wipes enemyies bullets. The number of bombs are displayed at the left-down corner.
. PSY Mode
As your ship grazes a bullet, the graze meter (displayed at the right-down corner) increases. When the graze meter becomes full, the ship becomes invincible for a while.
- Special -> Rolling
This movement widens the range the ship can graze.
. IKA Mode
Your ship has two attributes, white and black. All bullets also have these attributes, and your ship can absorb bullets that have the same attribute. Absorbed bullets are changed into lasers automatically.
- Special -> Attribution change
Change your ship’s attribute.
. GW Mode
Your ship can use the reflector. The reflector reflects bullets around your ship.
- Special -> Reflector
To use the reflector, you have to activate special until the reflector meter (displayed at the left-down corner) becomes empty. You can use the reflector only if the reflector meter displays 'OK'.

We hope you like rRootage Online even more after this update. We appreciate every review and welcome feedback at email@example.com.
It's a 100% free port of an awesome game. This is the real deal here.
The ads are restricted to a bar at the top of the screen in menus ONLY: you will NEVER see ads while playing! Though you can still disable those for a little cash, if you care.
Only possible gripes are the finickiness of the two-finger controls, but the mobile medium is often difficult for these types of games as fingers cover the screen, so I can't really complain. Especially as you can have the ship move relative to your finger rather than following it, which is a LOT more useful than it sounds.
Excellent classic Japanese space shooter gameplay
Multiple modes keep things interesting
Graphics are simple but effective, interesting vector shapes
