This was the first R-Type I played, and one of the first Amiga games I was really excited about. I have vivid memories of waking up in the morning in my parents house, sneaking into the office room, and turning my brothers Amiga 500 on.

    The 13-year old me thought R-Type was the coolest game I had ever played.

    I don't think I ever progressed past level 4 on this version...

    Hmm... There is a high score cheat, 'SUMITA', for getting unlimited lives. Should make R-Type finishable.

    My R-Type disk is not in good shape. I had to try rebooting 5 times before the disk drive recognized the boot block, and it doesn't seem to be able to load after that.

    Got the score 71000. Reached level 3 playing on my Amiga modded with the awesome Gotek drive emulator. Now I can play all the games.

    The high score cheat is 'SUMITA.', including the full stop at the end, and it works on FS-UAE. Look forward to trying it on the Amiga hardware.

    You need 30000 points to enter the hiscore list.

    Say what? R-Type supports two buttons on the controller! Awesome.

    Playing with the 'SUMITA.' cheat, I reached stage 6, and then the meatball boss started glitching the game horribly, killing me and messing with the memory to the point that it was almost unplayable. Enemies were teleporting around the screen, and the bottom half of the screen was deadly. I still managed to reached the next stage, but the game is still glitched, and I should probably stop the game for now.
