Classic Arcade Shooter R-Type Dodges And Weaves Its Way To iOS

Now here’s a blast from the past. Courtesy of DotEmu, purveyor of updated re-releases of classic games, Irem’s 1987 side-scrolling arcade shooter is ready to be experienced all over again.

Titled R.Type, this new version sports quite a few modern improvements, including Game Center support, two different control methods, two difficulty settings, and Retina Display support. It can be nabbed here for the paltry sum of $US2, while the Android version, which has been out for quite a while, can be found here.
