R-Type

Online version of R-Type for TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine. R-Type is a side scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game produced by Irem in 1987, first published by Nintendo on Arcade coin-op machines. The player controls a space fighter named the R-9 to defend humanity against a mysterious powerful alien life-form known as the Bydo. The game is made up of several sequential levels, with a boss enemy at the end of each. The player controls a small spacecraft and must navigate terrain and fight enemies using the various ship weapons. The player's spacecraft has, by default, a weak but rapid-firing main gun, which can take out waves of weak fighters; and a more powerful gun called a wave cannon, which requires the player to hold their fire to build up power for the cannon. When released, this fires a concentrated bolt of energy which can do more damage to larger enemies...

Online emulated version of R-Type was originally developed for the TurboGrafx-16 known as the PC Engine in Japan and France, is a 16-bit fourth-generation home video game console designed by Hudson Soft and sold by NEC Home Electronics. It was released in Japan in 1987, and in North America in 1989.

It features 8 KB of RAM, 64 KB of Video RAM, and the ability to display 482 colors at once from a 512-color palette. The sound hardware, built into the HuC6280 CPU, includes a PSG running at 3.58 MHz and a 5-10 bit stereo PCM.
Games were released on HuCard cartridges and later the CD-ROM optical format with the TurboGrafx-CD add-on. The TurboGrafx-16 controller, officially named the TurboPad, features a rectangular shape with a directional pad, two numbered "I" and "II" buttons, two rubber "Select" and "Start" buttons, and two "Turbo" switches for the I and II buttons with three speed settings.
