Super R-Type

Super R-Type is a Super Nintendo release within the series that takes the majority of R-Type II and adds its own elements to the mix, making it more of a "embellished re-telling" of the story. Among the differences are new stages and enemies (many of which have simply been renamed); veterans will notice that the 1st stage is entirely different. Also, the ship must "warp" to each boss location instead of simply flying into it, and the game is infamous for it's lack of mid-stage checkpoints.


Story

The Bydo Empire Returns!

The powers of the evil BYDO have returned. Now stronger than ever, these diabolical extra-terrestrials are poised to attack the Earth. Mankind has just one hope against these mutant beasts. The formidable R-9 is heading for the front lines at the very frontiers of space. Armed with high-powered, advanced-technology defenses, it is the ultimate battle machine. But is it enough?

  • Super R-Type Manual. This manual is interesting, as, like the Game Boy manual for R-Type, it sports many "americanized" descriptions and some poor translation, such as calling a Vulcan, "Balkan".
