EA has released 1980s arcade classic R-Type on the iPhone.

The side-scrolling shooter has been recreated complete with old-school graphics and all the features of the original, EA said.

R-Type for iPhone

The game comprises eight levels and eight bosses, and you can play with a selection of control modes: tilt, touch and virtual D-pad.

One downside: it's been designed for the iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS' 320 x 480 screen, so it's going to lose detail being upscaled onto the iPhone 4's 640 x 960 display.

R-Type for iPhone

It's already picking up plenty of thumbs-up on the iTunes App Store, and it can be yours for a mere £1.19. ®
