    It just Our Type.

    Keeping the classics alive man, this is excellent and will throw you right back to mid 80's Amstrad CPC 464 days, i played a similar title Slamander back on that platform but this is the daddy. Squirming in and out of... Read Full Review

    Hard to find a fault in the retro goodness!

    I always loved the R-Type games, but never had the skills to get past the second level with the brutal Revival (Classic) respawn system. This package finally lets me see the later levels in both their original pixelly g... Read Full Review
