R-Type 128k - It's now time for the Enterprise to have this incredible Shoot em up port conversion!


You may remember our big article on the Amstrad remake of 'R-Type 128k' which came with high praise and regarded as one of the most downloaded Amstrad homebrew's ever. But there's another remake that is set to take the Enterprise scene by storm and it's 'R-Type 128k', which has since been released by Easter Egg and converted by Geco @ 2019. This conversion of an already ported game, is an incredible overhaul of a classic as it sports much higher detail, smoother frame rates, and top quality sound.


For those of you who don't know of R-Type, it is one of the most incredible shoot em ups of our time, originally produced by Irem in 1987 that has been ported to a multitude of systems as you defend humanity against a mysterious alien life form known as the Bydo. It featured many waves of enemies some of them extremely deadly, a beam weapon, power ups, great level detail that almost feels alive, big menacing bosses and a fantastic soundtrack that you will listen to again and again. As such I myself have spent many hours playing this game, more so on the Amiga than the Amstrad, but it came as a huge surprise today to learn of this Enterprise conversion!

The program is EXOS compatible, needs at least 128 KB memory.
It recognizes Turbo machines, and sets sound playback based on CPU frequency. The package contains 2 versions, R-TYPE.* have more pastel colours, R_TYPE.* have darker colours, and pink is changed to orange on 1st map.
