R-Type review - Nintendo Gameboy

Read Original Review PDF for R-Type

Although the horizontally scrolling shoot 'em up format was nothing new, R-Type's fantastic, gory graphics and stunning gameplay guaranteed it instant classic status.

GAME: Guide your R-9 fighter against the mighty Bydo Empire in this horizontally scrolling progressive shoot 'em up.

What the Mean Machines staff thought


" Unbelievable! Despite one or two compromises, this is as close a version of R-Type as you could possibly wish for. Occasionally things get a bit blurry, but otherwise this is superb, packing all the challenge, addiction and features of the original coin-op. Even the music is the same! A must for shoot 'em up fans. "
