First R-Type Screens For iPhone

R-Type, one of the original side-scrolling space shooters, is coming to the iPhone soon from EA Mobile. Click ahead to see all of the recently released screenshots, plus more info from EA.

According to a press release, R-Type will contain the entire original arcade game, which has eight different levels and eight boss battles. There will be three different control modes– D-pad, touch, and tilt– and three difficulty levels.

No word yet on online high scores or bonus content, so we’re not expecting this to be more than a direct port. We love shooters, especially revived 80s classics, so for us this is definitely one to watch.
