(X-posted all over! I apologize if you see this multiple times!)
It's a really fun freeware shooter. I haven't been able to pass the 3rd boss yet, it's pretty hard. It has a really intersting weapon system, I suggest it to all of you to check out.
You can also unlock new modes as you get farther in the game or kill more enemies or reach certain point totals. My favorite unlock so far is "survival mode", where you start out w/ 4 indestructable drones firing various shot patterns at you. As time goes by, your point total increases as well as the number of drones. Just survive the barrage. Really fun.
I just realized this might be a good place to post this. When I was looking for Rtype Delta, was watching multiple copies on eBay. I bid on one that I thought I wasn't going to get, so I also started bidding on another copy pre-emptively. Turned out I won both and I didn't want to pull out and have that on my record. Anyone here looking for a copy? I'll sell it for $20 or best offer to an interested party. Or I could just put it back up on eBay and let you guys bid on it =P
I added rRootage and Warning Forever as interests today, and lo, there is community with the same interests! Rock on d00dz! I hope to hear about more cool shooters here.
I've only been playing the new build of WF for 3 days, can anyone else get past Level 18? That's my most recent top score; 200,000,000 + points, Levels 18, 10 deaths.
And I found the ABA games site a while ago; rRootage is my crack. Whenever I'm bored, I can load that up and have lots of fun. I've got at least all of the levels up to level 5 cleared on all the modes, and sprinkles of other levels up to 7. So hard, but so fun! The difficulty makes it fun.
Also, does anyone know any really good shooters available on MAME? I've been playing ESPrade, Guwange and Batrider among others that are really friggin' fun. Suggestions and places to find them?
Peace out and "find the path"! (that's my philosophy w/ shooter games; find the path of no enemy shot...)
