    To go along with all those retro graphics is one awesome soundtrack ripped right from the days of Japanese-inspired coin-ops.

    Competent touch controls and new options to dull the painful difficulty make this port of arcade shooter R Type generally pleasing.

    If you are a total R-Type diehard, I'd completely understand parting with a couple bucks to download it. But with so many other places to play R-Type – and be able to make the hard plays to defeat the Bydo Empire – it's tough to widely recommend.

    R-Type doesn't have much longevity going for it – no online leaderboards, no bonus levels, no R-Type II – but considering its two dollar price tag, you could buy worse for your Apple device.
