What with all the reception furore, let's not forget that the iPhone is still an amazing gaming device, and comfort ourselves by casting a long lingering look over these first screenshots from the iPhone/iPod touch version of the classic side-scrolling shooter, R-Type. DotEmu is the company responsible for bringing them to us, a developer and publisher dedicated to porting 80s and 90s games over to new platforms.
