R-Type Coming to Android on September 12

One of the all-time classic shoot-em-up games of the 80’s, R-Type, is about to hit Android in the next few weeks. Those of you who grew up playing games on the Amiga, Atari, and Commodore 64 will undoubtedly be familiar with the title and its ridiculous amount of power-ups.  According to the email we received, everything that went into the original version will be found in this new Android iteration, including the charge shot.  If the idea of a direct 80’s port doesn’t get you excited, maybe OpenFeint integration and cross-platform leaderboards and achievements will.  Look for R-Type on September 12th in the Android Market!
