It’s not full screen and very short

Nice to see

R-Type as I remember it. But with a “3D” option and freshened music.

It’s not full screen because the game was 4x3. The remixed music sounds cool, it’s still MIDI (which has charm), but the tempo of the songs is a little too fast (level 1:2 should be more ponderous, not a dance song).

The 3D graphics are actually 2.5D. Parallax scrolling backgrounds, some reflections, and more shading. The ships have depth

R-Type 3 would be a welcome addition.

Now can I try R-Type tactics on my iPhone?

Gripes, a ability to resize Fire/Force buttons would be welcome.

BUG: Holding down rhe fire button at the beginning of play makes joystick not work. Release button & move joystick will clear that up.

iPhone 11

Actually not bad on mobile

The game handles quite well, even with touch controls. If you like R-Type and are on the fence because you’re unsure about the mobile experience, I say go for it. Sure, it doesn’t match the experience of a proper setup, but it’s a cool way to experience the classics while you’re away from your CRT.
