This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Lowest ever price. Metacritic 81%. Demo also available to try on eShop. Excellent game.

Fight through all 14 Bydo-infested stages in retro 2D graphics or shiny 3D graphics - and swap back and forth with the touch of a button 'on-the-fly'. The new 3D graphics are accompanied by fully re-imagined arrangements of the timeless R-Type music tracks! The classic game-play remains untouched while the new Infinite game mode allows continuous progression from game start to final boss... the Bydo will not evade you this time! Both game modes can be played as single player or local multiplayer. Pull yourself together, save the earth and strike down the Evil Bydo Empire!!

Two Complete Games!: All 8 original R-Type levels + all 6 original R-Type II levels. Classic gameplay is unchanged and just as challenging as the original coin-op versions.

Hi-Res 3D Graphics + Fully Revamped Music!: Choose between 2D graphics with classic, retro music or shiny 3D graphics with snazzy, reworked music and sound effects. Switch between graphic and audio modes with the press of a button during play!

New Infinite Mode!: With infinite ships you’re sure to finally conquer the Bydos! Stage select allows you to practice and play the levels you want.

Classic Mode!: Play the classic R-Type & R-Type II just like the original version!

Co-Op Mode!: Go it alone or blast the Bydos with a buddy. Play friendly without collision, or flip it on for competitive play!

New features!

Breeze through the bullets with your slow-motion button, or increase your speed with the fast-forward button. In Infinite mode, you can also power-up your ship to its maximum with one button!

Great game - a retro classic!
The music is pretty snazzy too. This and Video Game Kid combined for under a £10 isn't bad if you had an 80's childhood.

If you know where to look you can get the original arcade machines and an emulator for free too, but kudos to the developers for refreshing the graphics and combining the two games into one native binary download whilst retaining the original feel of the game totally intact.

I succumbed to the SA eshop price.
