R-Type For Android Released: Classic Arcade Action!

Ok so I'm going to have to admit this before we start, I have never heard i this game before.. But it seems to be very popular! R-Type was originally an 80's shooter (before my time, might explain the previous sentence!), but has been ported to android by developers DotEmu. The game is Xperia Play optimised, meaning it will work great with the physical controls on your Play, but will also work on other android phones too. The promo video also shows it working great on the Xoom, so 10.1" tablets should be supported too!

The game is available for £2.59 in the android market.
