In the game, you get to pilot a futuristic fighter, the R-9a "Arrowhead", and attack endless waves of Bydo enemies, old-school, side-scrolling style. This new version includes all the features of the original. There are eight levels in total to fly through, and eight unique bosses to defeat along the way. Three different control options are available: tilt, touch and virtual D-Pad, and you can also upgrade with new weapons, power-ups, and attachments.
And just in case you're thinking that eight levels isn't that many and you'll probably breeze through it, don't forget that R-type was named one of IGN's Top 10 "Toughest Games to Beat", so players can expect a game that is very hard to master.
You can download the game here from the iTunes App Store for £1.19/$1.99.
