I sank so many coins in the R-TYPE game, which by far my favorite coin-op, back in France. When I was 15 I made a clone in pixel art, that was in the late 80s, I didn't get made because the company that started to code around it went bust, Thalamus if you remember.

I thought RTYPE final was meh, II and III never captured the spirit of the original so I started making this.
Hope you like :)

This looks great!

I love all the R-Type games, different ways, but I just love them.
My wow moment in the first one was the second level, when the dashing crab creatures came of hiding. Then my mind was blown trying to escape the snake from the level 2 boss, figuring out where to hide on screen. Such exciting, scary design.

Oh the hiding, yeah that was amazing the suspense trying to read the terrain see which creature looking think would move and then I'd see something jitter, like a wolf in the bushes and then it crawls up.

The first time I realized I could charge up the wave canon in stage 1, wow blasting a row of ships effortlessly, and then the Force appears and shields away all the enemy bullets - incredible.

I just implemented the wave canon going through multiple enemies and it is fun! It doesn't behave like RTYPE yet but it's just a matter of moving a few variables around.
The force is there but it's not acting properly yet - the designers of the original put so much work in it you can tell - it's nice to be able to move it front and back to shield from bullet hell!

Looking forward to some video of the game when you get it working. The stills are good, but video is even better!

Nice visual work, in line with R-Type's aesthetic, but not merely derivative.

The original R-Type? It's funny to think of now that I have so many shooters under my belt, but I remember getting crushed by Gomander repeatedly. :mrgreen:

I'll capture some gameplay next week :)

In the meantime I just finished modeling this super iconic thing from stage 1. It's fully articulated so I was thinking of animating it like a robot arm and the things on it will shoot all sorts of nasties... always wanted a tractor beam in rtype haha... probably a boss at the end of Stage 1. What do you think it should do?
