If you were a fan of R-type back in the day you couldn’t wait to for the game to get ported over to the 8bit computers, sadly the Amstrad fans were left feeling a little bit let down since their version was just another ZX Spectrum port.
We all the Amstrad CPC 464 was capable of so much more,but now years over 2 decades of its release “Easter Egg” has finally given everyone the conversion that we wanted back in the day. Bright and colourful graphics, amazing music and FX a game that really shows how good the Amstrad could have been when you had a game directly made for the machine and not just have it ported over from the Speccy.
So now you can truly experince the fight against the evil Bydo empire, the way it should have been! Game Features Colourful Stages R-Type display 16 colours sprites and maps, converted from the arcade graphics. Animated background, parallax scrolling. With gameplay to match this amazing looking game. 3 different audio modes for playing R-Type. So please check out this video on YouTube(which was done by Xyphoe)
