|I just download and try it, and it seems to be a nice polished work (introduction, cat'art, lot of details, ...). I play a lot with the original version on my 464 when I was young... and I must admit that I loose all my skills! So, for the moment, I'm bad.
But it's very cool to see a new big release by a team of 3 "newcomers" (even if I know that you are all older than me :) Congratulation guys!

|There are still the attribute based artefacts, which is normal, because it is still the good old speccy engine.
This is really a "different" game compaired to the old CPC version.
It is a lot Faster... So a lot harder.
I tested it on a real CPC but my girlfriend was here...no way to spend the whole night on it.
Will do this weekend.
The music are quite good but on the CPC small speaker, it is not as good as it could.
I suggest to use a stereo speaker with good basses.
Still searching what best joystick/paddle will do the best performance, sadly my speedking is in 1 button only.
perhaps a mouse from the USB mouse adapter by Bryce ? would it work ?

|Wow! A great use of cat'art for a game.
I am impressed by the quality of it even before the game starts.
Intro screens, great main screen, many options. Old CPC games just had a black or simple screen with few options or just start game. This is my thought for modern CPC games, a great menu with more options, difficulty settings, sound menu, etc. This is great!
I was never as good in R-type, lost several times in first level (especially since the movement jumps some pixels and things go too fast) and then tried the casual mode. That's a better way to see all the levels and not worry about loosing and having to start again.
It was worth the wait. Congratulations!

|Awesome work ! very smooth, very speed, awesome gfx, musics and code.
i played a lot this game when i was young and it's a real pleasure to see a real CPC quality version of one of the many speccy ports game.
Thanx to Easter Egg for this master piece

|Great work !!! With a bunch of details.
A bit too difficult for me. But I'm getting better ;)
Thanks to Easter Egg members.

|For what I have seen for the moment, the release is rather well-polished! I'm not a R-Type specialist, I find the game has a very dynamic action. Well done for a speccy port! :)|

|Great musics, graphics that don't stink, frenetic action... That's a well-rounded conversion that honours both R-Type and the CPC.
I also like the fact that the Easter Egg team chose to push the envelope, embedding quite innovative aspects for the CPC. The highscores catart is a smart idea, the game tutorial is neat and the casual mode is very useful for a weak player like me ;)

|Nicely done! R-Type was one of the first games I owned on CPC, and one of my favorite. So I was very impatient to discover this remake. The introduction is very well done, congratulations! And what a pleasure to play in 16 colors with a background music!
Thanks to Easter Egg for this wonderful prod :)

|I love your CAT :)
Nice flip picture at the begining too ;) Some smooth gfx & sfx. The game is too hard game for me (I assume), so I guess it is as hard as necessary !

A pleasure to read consistent things with what we wanted to bring in terms of gaming experience and dedicated CPC content. :)

|I have a question - is there way to redefine keys? Cursors are hell choice.|
|TotO - 09 February 2012 - 16:05:36||127 posts|
This game is intended to be played like arcade does... With the 25 years old connector located on the left of the computer. :)
For convenance, we add two keyboard keys mapping:
- For 6128, the same as MAME. (best mapping ever for arcade games)
- For 464/664, you may use ZX to fire and f-keys to move (F1, F2, F3, F5)

|I needed to replay the two levels 8 times to defeat Hicks... Yeah !!!
Next time you have to make a port of BorderDown :)
Thanks for releasing this game. (with a easier level2 endboss)
|TotO - 27 June 2012 - 16:07:01||127 posts|
|Next time, can it go first to the ReSeT with my Naomi 2 system? :)
Yes, I released yesterday the final version (the same as the box version) with the second boss fixed.
8 times, realy? Thank you beta tester! :D

|I liked a lot to see fight between Beb, Hicks and T&J.Thanks for your support and your feedback, level 2 boss has been improved now ;)|
|Tom&Jerry - 27 June 2012 - 22:46:36||37 posts|
|I am sure that Beb has taken illegal drugs to improve his level ! (like quatre-quart or camenbert :-) ).|
|TotO - 28 June 2012 - 00:22:10||127 posts|
|I suggest quatre-quarts AND camembert ! ;)|

|An update was done, late of June.
- An hardest mode named MASTER, when you finish the ARCADE game.
- Two boss difficulty was adjusted. (Gomanda & Bydo)
- Some GFX fix on stage 2 and 5.
- A new "wink" easter egg
That is definitively the finale version.

|No, I finally try it in Casual mode!
I didn't try the updated version but I will do it. The little drawback is that I will erase my impressive hi-score table :)
