R-Type

Post by AmidstStorm » Wed Jul 18, 2012 5:26 pm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
R-TYPE - All ports. Home computer, console & handhelds
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GAME INFO:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Horizontal, power up by icon, checkpoints, 8 stages (varies and loopable in some ports. eg. PC Engine version is spit into 2 separate games of 4 stages).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GAME SETTINGS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All format defaults. 3 lives, no continues.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*SUBMISSION DETAILS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*There is pretty much a port of R-Type on every home computer, console & handheld. The following formats are what I believe to be true ports in terms of the scoring being the same as the arcade, and these score submissions will be grouped together. All other ports will be on separate ranking tables.

Arcade, MAME, Playstation, XBLA & iOS (There's also an online version you can play using your browser)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SUBMISSION INFO NEEDED:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Player - Name/Initials* - Score - Stage reached** - Format/Region - Auto Fire On/Off (screenshot or photo***)

Eg. AmidstStorm - 36,500 - Stage 1 - Master System - Off


*The name input screen is not available in all ports.

**Please submit your score with the first number being the loop you have reached once you hit the second loop in some ports. Otherwise just state the stage number.

***Without a photo I will still add your score to the rankings table, but if it is a particularly high score then a screenshot would be nice to see for confirmation.

It sure is tough Sel.. it's a brilliant game though.. it took me about 20 years to realise it.

Inspired by this thread, I thought I would have a play on the PCE 'complete' version (both carts spliced together, so all eight stages) via the Wii Virtual Console.

It has pleasantly more bullets thrown at you than I remember. One big omission, though. No hi-score table. I like the hi-score music.

You cannot pause the game immediately after being killed, making it difficult to take a photograph of your score (could pause the emulation with the home button, but still not much time). Congratulations on taking your photograph so quickly, AmidstStorm!
