pros and cons
PROS: the game has solid classic SFX and graphics. if you were a fan of space gunners like Raiden or this one back on the SNES you will be hard pressed to be disappointed. the upgrades are all retro overpowered and crazy as you delve further but it makes dying that much more tense when you have to sart over with your pea shooter from level one. new players might not get the same stoked vibe as older players but it's fun non the less and the whole feel of it is very nostalgic.
CONS: ok so I'm playing this on an iPhone and it's very common for games like this to be pretty hard to play on the more difficult levels because you can't tell what's going in with your fingers blocking the action. probably not an issue on tablets, but consider getting a stylus if you are on a cellphone. also would be nice if there was a password function although I know this may be a lot to ask for on a game like this, and we do at least get to pause the game. but still, password function would be nice for quick play and go type recovery.
Please Fix It
R-Type Final 2 got released and you haven't given us an update on fixing the controls. They are all over the place completely unplayable.
Excellent retro shooter
Please make sure you keep updated for latest iOS developers, thank you
