    Interesting comment Eric. You played quite well in the Summer Yolo. You scored 300,900 points with the ability to use Auto Fire for a 10th place finish.

    Now it’s the worst shmup game in the world?

    Try and beat 300,900 to improve your resolve. If not, then I hope you find a good day somewhere.

    Game on for gamers. I’d like to see someone or the same person score over 800K. Any takers?

    Good nomination Derek! R-Type is very different to other shooters, requires a lot more strategy and deft skills with the attachment. Brilliant game and the series to follow were terrific. I really like R-Type Final and a new Version is being made via Kickstarter.

    Orchestral soundtrack of this game ...



    I also like the new one that is coming out. A jive trailer from 1:43 ...



    And my favorite R-Type in action. Wonderful engineering and game play. Just beats Gradius on these criteria, and also Darius. Music and sound effects are awesome ...

    The Bydo are a very unusual enemy. The fate of the cosmos is in your hands.

    it's poorly designed and unfun to learn, the scoring is just suiciding on the 2nd last stage of loop 1 over and over then nomiss'ing the rest of the game.

    since 99% of the game is static, its not an easy game to play at all but its definitely boring as hell to practice.


    you literally stand still for the final boss
