Classic Game Room reviews R-TYPE for the Sega Master System from 1988! This legendary horizontal SHMUP space ship shooter is one of the most iconic video games ever created. This review of R-Type shows gameplay footage from Rtype showing the reviewed game in all of its HD glory (upconverted from the Sega Master System) As SHMUPS go this is one of the big ones and has seen numerous sequels and remakes on various consoles ranging from the Super Nintendo to PS2 and Xbox Live Arcade XBLA. Blow away the Bydo bitches with an arsenal of laser beams and missiles and power ups and the force cannon thingy that you can shoot out and reel back in. R-Type gameplay is unique and different from many side scroller shmup shootersl like Gradius and Thunder Force 6. So here it is from Classic Game Room, a review of the legendary R-Type for Sega Master System. Originally released in the arcades in 1987 from Irem, R-Type is the bomb and an a true old school shmup arcade coin-op classic worthy of being reviewed and respected by Classic Game Room. Interestingly R-Type is not available on the NES.

Man, I don't remember R-Type being so annoying. I guess when I was younger I was used to it. You get all the way to the boss, you die, and it takes you all the way back to the beginning! Damn! So annoying. As if it couldn't get any worse, Spelunker on the NES. Terrible. It's kind of fun, I guess, in a masochist way. But don't buy either of these games. It's not worth it.

Prehistoric Isle is a downloadable PS Mini from PlayStation Network that is playable on PlayStation 3 and PSP. Gameplay is hard as nails and extremely fun as you pilot an old school, 1930's airplane through a prehistoric island filled with killer dinosaurs, cavemen and mutated insects. CGR Prehistoric Isle video review has Prehistoric Isle arcade gameplay recorded from PS3. Prehistoric Isle is a horizontally scrolling SHMUP with intense game play that should appeal to airplane shooter fans looking for a challenge! Affordable and super fun.

Classic Game Room reviews DUX for Sega Dreamcast, a 2009 "indie" release for the game console that won't stop rocking! This CGR review of DUX for Sega Dreamcast from Hucast**** and Kontechs has gameplay from Dux, a horizontally scrolling space ship shooter or "SHMUP" for Sega Dreamcast where you fly a spaceship against endless waves of alien scumbags! Cool visuals, awesome music and a fun R-Type style make Dux a treat to play for serious fans of the genre. While the game could have used more options the overall presentation is "indie" and slick while still being playable and fun. Region-free, Dux works on all game consoles (CGR was not able to confirm this on a PAL Dreamcast though), it outputs NTSC and VGA video. Plays with the standard Dreamcast controller or arcade sticks and saves your high scores on Dreamcast VMU card. Dux is a fun space ship shooter in the side scrolling Shmup genre and proves that the Dreamcast has many more years ahead of it!

This video review features video gameplay footage of R-Type Command for PSP and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Hellfire review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR! *******www.CGRstore**** Classic Game Room reviews HELLFIRE for Sega Genesis released in 1990 by Toaplan and Seismic! This insanely hard side scrolling space ship shooter (or SHMUP) is for those looking for a serious, SERIOUS challenge! Bump anything and die. Get shot and die. Crash into a shot into a bump into die and die. Hard levels and that chunky Sega Genesis style make this a cool game but really frustrating with R-Type checkpoints and power ups that cause you to speed and die. CGR Hellfire video review for Sega Genesis (aka Sega Mega Drive) has 16-bit horizontally scrolling shooter action in HD!

Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the Little Mermaid from Capcom for the Game Boy. The Little Mermaid came along right in the middle of the Capcom/Disney era, a relationship that proved video games based on movies can be awesome in good hands. Now, the Little Mermaid isn't quite Duck Tales or anything, especially not on the Game Boy, but it's still a solid portable game crafted from Capcom's triton true formula. The Little Mermaid is like a mixture of R-Type and Bubble Bobble, and strange as that may sound, it's an accurate description. Ariel swims all over the screen, and she can attack enemies with a flip of her tail, like an underwater R-Type. This traps the enemies in bubbles, hence the Bobble. This video review features video gameplay footage of The Little Mermaid for the Game Boy and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
