R-Type is at your neighborhood Chili's!
« on: March 13, 2014, 03:29:35 PM »
So I was at Chili's the other day, and they had these new "Ziosk" things where you could order drinks, deserts and play games while waiting for your food. The games were your usual casual fare: Trivia, Solitaire, R-Type.

Wait... R-Type?!

It seems to be a straight port one of the Android mobile versions, played via touch screen. (Which is why I did so terribly in that video) Also it's the lite version which is stupid since you have to pay 99 cents to get to any of the games.  :roll:

What an interesting choice!

I think it's kool, but I wonder if most folks can get too far before becoming frustrated.

My guess is probably not too far. I myself was only able to get to the 1st level boss. Not sure if I was doing it wrong, but it seemed like he took way more hits. (Could be to compensate for the auto-fire that's always on.) Afterwards when I got home, I whomped him on my TG16 and got all the way half past level 3 on one life. :P

I remember at one point the server came over and remarked that she'd never seen anything that action packed on one of those things. I wish I took a screenshot of the games list, but this seriously is a crazy standout on the list.

Indeed. Perhaps Tatsujin should record an instructional video for all the newbs who will undoubtedly stumble across this game for the first time.

Also, I know about the womb shooting strategy, but I'm not sure if that worked here. Though my aim could've just been way off. (Again, bad touch controls)

Speaking of controls, you know how the ship flies across the screen in the beginning? You can actually start controlling it there, but it'll glitch out because it's still trying to move it around itself... lawl
