sgm0189 - Developed by Irem Corp. and Published by Irem America Corp., "Super R Type" was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in September of 1991. Take aim and fire in "Super R-Type" for the Super Nintendo console. This shoot-em-up video game was released in 1991 and was developed and published by Irem. The Nintendo game's story is simple: The evil Bydo Empire has invaded, and it's your job to destroy them. Armed only with your ship, the experimental R-9, you'll traverse a variety of levels. "Super RType" for the Super Nintendo supports a single-player mode. In "Super R-Type," the screen will automatically scroll horizontally from left to right. You can position the ship anywhere on the screen to avoid enemies and bullets. In addition to the enemies, you will also need to avoid obstacles, including walls. If your ship touches anything, whether it is a bullet or a wall, it is game over. Once you lose a life, you are taken back to the beginning of the level to start over. "Super R-Type" is known for its challenging difficulty, as the screen will fill up with bullets and obstacles quickly. This Nintendo game can be completed in an hour by a seasoned veteran who knows what to expect, but it could take 15 to 20 hours or more to get to that point for beginners. While challenging, "Super R-Type" is also rewarding because its game mechanics and graphics will ensure you want to keep playing.Your ship is packed full of weapons to help you destroy the Bydo Empire. While you start off with a standard gun that shoots forward, you can swap out to five other powerful weapons. These weapons appear at random spots during the gameplay, and touching them will automatically add them to your ship. The color of the item determines which weapon you get. The red item is a counter-air laser, used for destroying enemies above you. The blue item is the rebound laser, a weapon that will bounce off walls. The yellow item lets you fire a powerful shot that will destroy anything on the ceiling or floor. If you want to destroy everything on the screen, grab the green item. This weapon fires eight bullets in a spread pattern in front of you. There is also the gray weapon that functions similar to a shotgun.The R-9 in "Super R-Type" for the SNES also has two additional weapons at its disposal: Bits and the Force. The Force is a giant spherical item next to your ship that is always present and can be positioned either in front of or behind your ship to absorb shots. The Bits fire additional weapons, letting you effectively double or triple your firepower. You'll need to master all of these weapons to defeat all seven stages. Four of these stages were taken from the "R-Type II" arcade game, while the remaining three stages were created specifically for "Super R-Type" for the SNES. "Super R-Type" for the SNES has no official rating but is appropriate for all ages. If you are looking for a challenging SNES game with lots of replay potential, then you'll enjoy "Super R-Type." Pre-owned, includes game only, no box, manual or inserts included.
