R-Type is a side scrolling shoot 'em up best known for it's extremely tough and strategic gameplay. You control the R-9 spaceship as it launches a last-ditch effort to repel the evil Bydo empire.

R-Type features huge bosses and intricate, often maze-like levels.

This is arguably the greatest shoot-'em-up to ever grace the Master System. Bar the odd graphic deficiency, it's a totally accurate coin-op conversion.

You control a space fighter named "Arrowhead" to defend humanity against a mysterious but powerful alien life-form known as "Bydo", which was later discovered to be not entirely alien in origin. R-Type is recognized as one of the classics of the shooter genre from the 1980s arcade.

This classic shooter is great on any system, but it really shines on the Turbografx-16! With bright, crisp graphics and no slowdown, this is easily the best version of R-Type. R-Type is a typical side-scroller in many ways, but its depth and challenge far exceeds most games of its kind.

A legendary game that revolutionized the genre and completely changed the way players viewed the humble shoot'em up. R-Type is an incredibly difficult game but, due to the superb graphics, breath-taking level design and never-before-seen gameplay, the game was a huge success, and is still regarded as being the finest of its genre.

R-type's real stroke of genius was in the innovative weapon system the game introduced. The first is the beam weapon : when the player presses and holds the fire button, a beam 'power meter' starts to charge up, once the meter was full, releasing the fire button unleashed a very powerful 'plasma burst', capable of destroying most of R-type's enemy ships. The trade-off was that charging the weapon took up valuable seconds, giving the Bydo ships time to attack.

The second and perhaps most significant innovation was R-type's now-legendary 'Force Pod'. This takes the form of an invincible, detachable laser-firing pod that can be attached to either the front or rear of the player's ship, or can be detached completely and sent forth into the enemy ships. The pod laser was a stroke of true genius and, coupled with the superb level design, gave the world its first 'strategic' shoot'em up.

The sequel to the hugely successful original finds the evil Bydo Empire once again intent on the destruction of all mankind in this sideways scrolling, six-level shoot-em-up.

The innovative weapons system of the original game - the 'Beam Weapon' and 'Force Pod' - make a welcome return and remain unchanged for the sequel.

The tight, demanding gameplay and high emphasis on correct usage of the weapons system also return - although the sequel is, if anything, even more demanding than its already unforgiving predecessor; with more durable enemies and trickier level design.

R-Type II features three new weapon shot types:
* Green - Search Laser - fires semi-homing lasers that can bend at 45

R-Type III: The Third Lightning is a 1993 horizontally-scrolling shooter video game developed by Irem.

R-Type III was the first game in the series to introduce new Forces. As well as the original Force (which was now named the Round Force, later named as the Standard Force in R-Type Delta), the player could choose from two other Forces: the Shadow Force and the Cyclone Force. These both had new, different weapon sets and special enhancements.

It also refined the weapons and charging system. It reverted to the original Red-Blue-Yellow weapon system, and the Diffusion Wave Cannon from R-Type II was replaced with a more standard wave cannon. Charging this cannon to full beam strength results in a massive, powerful beam that passes through all enemies and obstacles. A new weapon called the Hyper Wave Cannon was also added to the ship, which the player could use instead of the normal wave cannon if who desired. By switching to Hyper mode and supercharging the wave cannon, the ship temporarily gains the ability to use the Hyper Wave Cannon, which is unique among wave cannons in having a rapid fire capability. The shots fired create damaging explosions, and if the player has collected one or two Bits, they spin around the ship burning with energy. However, this Hyper mode causes the ship to overheat after a short while, and it must subsequently spend seconds cooling down, during which time the wave cannon is inoperative.

The third and final arcade release of this classic series (which would foster three further console-only sequels, see 'Series' for details) sees the Bydo Empire waging a full scale assault against other planets.

R-Type Leo possesses many of the elements that made the first two games in the series such classics, but the feel and gameplay is very different. Both the beam laser and the pod make a return, but play a different role in this game. The pod in particular now acts more like a mini 'smart bomb', in that it only detaches from the player's ship for a few seconds, and automatically homes in on enemies. The level design is also far more open than that of its predecessors, and far more forgiving.

R-Type Leo is a game that firmly divides opinions of fans of the series. Some considered it to be a blasphemy to the R-Type name, arguing that in making a game far more 'traditional', both in feel and level design, R-type Leo actually represented a step backwards from what the innovative original achieved. Less patient players undoubtedly prefer Leo's open levels and forgiving gameplay. Something that all can agree on, however, is how stunningly beautiful the game is. The detail and use of colour on both the backgrounds and enemy ships is incredible and is one of the finest examples of two-dimensional artwork the arcade has ever seen.

Rabio Lepus Special is an horizontal shooter and a remixed version of the arcade game Rabio Lepus originally released by V-System in 1987. In a faraway Kingdom, the king and his two daughters are happy and there is peace and harmony in the land. That is until one fateful day when an unknown spaceship appears like a bolt out of the blue and kidnaps the king and the two girls, all dressed in their bunny suits. The player assumes control of Usagi, a flying robotic-rabbit and his mission is to rescue the captives and eliminate their unknown captors. The rocket-powered rabbit comes equipped with a Vulcan gun and a set of homing missiles. Missiles are supplied in limited quantities and must be refilled frequently. Interestingly, Rabio Lepus Special doesn't reward the player with power-ups. Large carrot-cans are scattered around the levels and drop various items when destroyed such as carrots (life), money jars (points), missiles, raccoons (short invincibility) or a cute yellow hair bow (increases the missiles destruction power) - but nothing is available to boost up the main weapon. However, the rabbit's ultimate weapon are his fists and boxing gloves - when in close range, he can land a punch and inflict a lot more damage to the enemy. Rabio Lepus Special features six stages and three main locations - space station, asteroid and finally the planet surface where the enemy leader hides.

The game involves at driving on America's roads at approximately 200 miles (320 km) per hour from Boston to Los Angeles - a whopping 2,990 miles (4,810 km) from start to finish. Each player must try to gain personal glory by competing against eight computer-controlled players who can race their way across the United States of America. However, the drivers have fictional names and are neither based on the Formula One or the NASCAR Winston Cup (now Sprint Cup Series) racers of that era.

Race Days is a 1994 racing video game for the Game Boy, which is essentially a compilation of the video games Dirty Racing (Japan-exclusive) and Jeep Jamboree: Off Road Adventure (North America-exclusive)

This game allows the player to compete in a race with either Grand Prix style cars (similar to Micro Machines) or with vehicles designed for off-roading.

Obstacles must be avoided and opponents must be overtaken in the Grand Prix game titled Dirty Racing while hills, bumps, and sharp curves must be navigated in the off-road event titled Dirty Racing. Players in the Dirty Racing mode are informed of any sharp turns by making them look on top of their windshield. This game can be used with the GameLink cable to provide two-player fun and entertainment. Each variation has a map with plenty of statistics. Players must qualify before each race and start out with local meets before working up to the big championship. The maps are generic and do not show any nation in particular. Players can also practice before each race in order to tune up their skils.

Dirty Racing has three difficulty levels: Taking It Easy (easy), Hazardous! (medium), and Totally Dirty (hard). At the shopping cut scene, players can purchase tires along with engine boosts and nitro.

A heavily flawed port of the Atari arcade game (which in itself was only average), Race Drivin' for the Super NES has blocky graphics, lousy controls (especially during turns), muddled sound effects (squealing tires sound decent, but that's about it), sparse music, and boring gameplay.
