Box Text
It's R-TYPE arcade action for your Sega system! The galaxy is in deep peril: fould creatures from the evil Bydo Empire have warped across space to invade and conquer our planet! There is only one hope for victory. The Earth Defense League has chosen you to pilot R-9, a nuclear-powered space fighter that can cut through invading aliens faster than a light saber through butter. Fly R-9 through eight exciting levels of high-powered action. Use your plasma gun to rip through armies of nasty creatures and their deadly machines. And when the going gets really tough, pick up Droid Units to make your ship ever harder hitting. You'll be up against creatures so mean and ugly they'll make your hair stand on end. But Earth is depending on you. So strap yourself in the cockpit, put your fingers on the triggers, and blast 'em out of the skies!

Extra Credits
If you lose game, you can get more than the standard 3 credits by rotating the D-pad on controller clockwise. As you do this, the credit total rises to a max of 10. NOTE: I own one copy of this game that requires counter clockwise rotation.

Even more Extra Credits
During sound test, Play effect 62 three times then exit sound test. Play game. On continue screen rotate D-pad clockwise for more credits. Up to 30. This code can be repeated. NOTE: Only 17 sounds appear on sound test. If you hold button 2 and press RIGHT, you can access up to 95 sounds.
