About The Game
R-Type II is an horizontally scrolling arcade video game shoot-em-up.
The inevitable sequel to the hugely-successful original finds the evil Bydo Empire once again intent on the destruction of all mankind. The infamous Beam Weapon and Pod Laser make a welcome return, as do the beautifully rendered, organic-looking levels. R-type II doesn't do anything that the original didn't do, but the sequel is every bit as good as its illustrious predecessor, with the same tight game-play and imaginative level design that made R-type such a classic - although R-Type II is, if anything, more difficult than its already-unforgiving prequel.
Released in December 1989.
Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (R-Type II : G.S.M. Irem 2 - PCCB-00017) on 21/01/1990.
