Comment: "As hard as it is simple. The 1 hit kills ( lose all weapons ) are still just as annoying as they were when it first came out, still, worth the perseverance just to see the end guys. The Original PCB's considered a rarity and may be cheaper ( and easier ) to purchase a copy board."
Comment: "The R-Type Video game was actually manufactured in Redman, Wa by Nintendo of America and not by Irem. Yes everthing But the main PCB was put together by Nintendo. Irem may have put together the PCB but not the up-right.
It was Nintendo's last coin-op game before thay closed that department. "
