Game Details

Based on Irem's M72 PCB, R-Type II did not make as major an impact as the original - perhaps as it was issued as a kit form and no dedicated hardware. The graphics are more polished than the first, looking more like Irem's later work (In the Hunt for example) with metallic looks and devilish levels.

Almost impossible to finish.
