As expected, the popular R-Type II arcade shoot 'em up has just made its debut on the Android platform. The game has been teased for quite a while by developers, but no exact release date had been confirmed until the title went on sale in the Google Play Store.
The original horizontal scrolling shooter arcade game was developed and published by Irem in 1989 and has been published on Android by DotEmu.
Aside from the original features included in the game, R-TYPE II for Android will also allow players to unlock three difficulty settings and two control modes. It is also worth mentioning that the game is compatible with MoGa Game Controllers, Nvidia SHIELD and Xperia Play.
You can now download R-Type II for Android 1.0.2 for £1.49/€1.99/$2.49 via Google Play Store. The game should be fully compatible with most devices powered by Android 2.3.3 and up.
