It randomly crashes, you can't skip the intro and after a game over it takes ages to restart, but this game rox! One of the best for the psp.

who cares about ripped gfx in a game conversion? i'm sorry i don't get it. it's about the gameplay, isn't it?

Nothing is ripped, since we credit R-type for gfx in the nfo. It's not as if we stole them without any credit..

Yeah but really, with such a good engine you should have hired some gfx slaves who then can pixel something for you. Or even use 3D sprites. Whatever.

elend, there are plans to do a whole custom gfx version, if the responce isnt too negative about this ;)) u just ruined it! lol
I joined in this project 2 days before releasedate :(
i wanted to do it.. but there wasnt any time.. so too bad.. what stuns me more is that u as a hardcore shmupper, choose gfx over gameplay =)

Haha well yeah. Usually the hardcore shmuppers will prefer a good balanced gameplay over gfx, but you know.. I am a gfx whore. With a 100 % completely selfmade shmup you could do the shmup scene quite a favour. And always look at the japanese, how they do it. :D

Hummm yep, this was released in a VERY short delay for a compo, so it is a kind of beta version, shortly we'll probably release a bugfixed one.

Concerning the gfx...yep it is a "conversion" not a new game... so the goal was to be as good as the original, not different.. and reaching R-type level is not that bad ;-)

btw, have fun with this one & expect something original next time !

Well, I'd like to see a version that works on my PSP... After the intro (why the heck is there no way to skip it btw? It gets BORING very fast!) it hangs and then my PSP turns off... Any fix available?

Awesome game, although there's a few minor gripes. First off, I'm pitiful at shooters, so a konami code cheat would be nice :-)
Additionally, it would be great if you could skip the intro, and if there weren't such a big delay in between games. Otherwise, this is easily one of the best homebrew games yet.

hard as fuck, frustrating menus. should give it piggie at least but it is totally unplayable for me (a shmup fan ...)
