rtypeleo, R-Type Leo (Japan)
Although the R9 reappears (simultaneously in 2 player mode), the famous orb is replaced with a power-up icon, and two smaller orbs, which unleash 3 types of laser fire-power. The beam-up has bee replaced with the new orbs homing in on enemies and devestating them.
Made on the M92 pcb rather than the M72, R-Type Leo features only 4 levels with enchaned colours and backdrops, rocking bassy music and simultaneous two player.
Apparently only released for the Japanese market, the pcb is now rare in the rest of the world - and seems to have only been issued in a kit form.
