"R-Type" Challenges iOS with Leaderboards and Achievements

Irem's classic horizontal shooter resurfaces on Apple devices

R-Type is a love it or hate it memorization-based game, but it's a classic regardless. Now Irem's 1987 horizontal shooter is officially available on iOS platforms for $2.59.


The iOS port was handled by DotEmu, who also brought 1991 arcade action game Avenging Spirit and shooter Raiden Legacy to the platform. This version of R-Type features Game Center leaderboards and achievements, as well as two control modes: touch mode and virtual d-pad.
