Gamers of a certain age will remember the thrills and outrageous unfairness/magic of R-Type and R-Type II and will welcome the game back into their lives. New gamers will also benefit from a bit of hard-core gaming... even if it is on their phones.
Yup, R-Type 2 is coming to Android and iPhone. The space scrolling shooter was a huge hit in the arcade and on the Amiga, Atari ST and even the Gameboy following its release in the late 1980s. Check out the new version in its trailer below.
