The History of R-Type: Prepare for Blast Off
The game was developed and published by Irem for release in Japan in 1987 and by Nintendo for its North American release. R-Type is a single or multi-player gaming experience of the shoot 'em up genre.
The gamer plays the role of a pilot on-board a futuristic fighter, the R-9a. The objective, to destroy the Bydo Empire. What made the game unique was the level design, which can be classed as an enemy itself.
The R-9a come equipped with a standard cannon, but if the fire button was held down the cannon would charge and fire a huge blast that would take down all but the strongest of enemies. Another previously unseen feature was the force. This was a detachable laser cannon that could be attached to the front or back of the R-9a. It would absorb all enemy attacks. It could also be used as a weapon in itself, and could be fired into the enemy before being pulled back.
