R-Type is tough. And I DO mean tough. I mentioned R-Type before as one of those games I’ll never beat. In fact, I’ve never gotten past level 4.
But I’m okay with that I guess because it’s difficult in the right kind of way and I keep coming back for more. The game doesn’t hold your hand or treat you like you’re a child. It just hits you with everything it’s got and doesn’t hold back. If you beat it, it’s because you earned it!
