    "Very retro and enjoyable! The aesthetic is vaguely reminiscent of the Metroid series while the gameplay is more akin to the old arcade games you may (or may not) be used to. While there are certainly better 1980s games out there, I had a blast with this one and it's a really good choice for Android."

    "R-TYPE is one of the best classic nintendo games on iphone. It is just like the game from the 80s that you remember. It is a space shooting game that will keep you entertained for hours. If you love retro games, you will love R-TYPE."

    "This is a great vintage style arcade game. It feels like the games from the 80's. The controls aren't perfect, but the game is pretty darn close to being perfect. This is a great throwback to the old version and leaves the gamer feeling like they are reconnecting with their childhood. My kid took it from me and was even into it, and all he wants to do is play high-def games on his xbox. It is a winner all around and I highly recommend it."

    "I grew up playing R-Type and this captures the spirit of it as best you can. If you're into side-scrolling shooters like Lifeforce, or if you also grew up playing R-Type, this is right up your alley! The controls take a little getting used to, but if you've played before you should be able to pick it up. If you're new, you're in for hours of fun blasting away at aliens!"

    "Classic shooter games all packed into one application. There are upgrades and different weapons to use. Great concept, however there are thousands of games that provide the same stimulation. Basically a new game from a previously existing one. "

    "Old school space shooter for the 80s kids out there. It is pretty basic, but that's the point too."
