"If you lived out your pre-teen and teen years during the late 80s to mid 90s, then the game R-Type probably brings back fond memories of many hours spent during the summer holidays at the local arcade. Yes...I know I'm dating myself. You'd likely recount the bags of quarters you wasted trying to beat the game. It was definitely one of the more challenging shooter games out at that time. But as frustrating and challenging as the game was, it was FUN.
So now we zoom into the present. 2009. You're thinking "hey...I would love to play some classic R-Type 'cause that was an awesome game". Well now you can."
