The coin-op classics, R-Type & R-Type II, are together on Steam! 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!
1080p remastered.
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!

R-Type Dimensions EX reviews and comments

Here is a great awesome game that say before you reboot on Amiga or arcade, having had the games on the Amiga 500, which I always loved playing it even today, sometimes the old games do not veilsmooth on the contrary, a retouching or two, and it makes a bomb well whizzy redone, the music of the first level makes me dance, while playing, Bravo to the hauteurt for this wonderful remake, I hope to see another of the kind Amiga, as hybris of carthex that I would like to see as well in remake.

A very Reissue of the first two R-Type parts! You can switch between the old 2D graphics and the new 3D graphics at any time. There are chic Effects and more Background, everything looks more modern in 3D mode. The Music and Sound Effects have also been slightly reworked and sound better in 3D mode. The Game, though, remains in 2D, as it used to. But you can also choose the old Graphic at any time! It makes fun, but is saucy as it used to be! But there is luckily Endless mode, where you have infinite Life, because in Classical Mode you only have 3 Lives!

I = an old R-type and turrican and katakis and apydia and chris hülsbeck fan glad to play dimensions the first time - there was no emulation to find therefore the game is OK - but slightly loveless presentation/intro I miss the difficultly levels first bugs detected: it ap peared that all enemies, threads and animations were gone. there was only the arrow allone in the scrolling grafics. SNES usb controller not working and it has been a long time waiting for the implementation into steam!! I very very wish: R-Type tactics 1+2 for STEAM and in english instead in Jap and also thanks to steam for the "Rigid Force" Greetings to all 80ties gamers, Irem and the masters: Manfred Trenz + Chris Hülsbeck!!

Yes, how horny is that. R-Type 1 and 2 remastered plus Original Version! As a Home Computer Veteran, I just had to have the Game and I wasn't disappointed. Original Graphics and Sound are included as well as a new modernized 3-D Optics plus modernized Music and Sound effects-and on Request with a seamless transition, you can switch straight back and forth in the Game Af of push of a button. In addition, various other Settings in the Display, such as a very funny View where you stand at an arcade machine. The 3-D Models have admittedly no longer quite the Charm of the Sprites, but that still goes perfectly fine. It doesn't seem completely cluttered in the new Look either or something, the Game is just as readable in the modern Version as it always is. There is also a Coop mode and an endless mode for People for the arcade games are too hard;) Anyone who can do with Shoot ' em Ups even a little bit should start here.
