Can this game still be purchased on disk with cover, manual and stuff?

I never intended to do a longplay of this simply because I have many more vids to crack on with and knowing yourself already did it I wasn't in a hurry to do it myself,...but when a sub asks I always put it in the que,...it was actually the "level 0" not being shown which is what geared me up to do it,...so it certainly wasn't done to steal your thunder,...in fact I didn't link the longplay I know about to your channel, still, hey ho ay  :D


Thanks for checking it out.
Yikes! Only just seen this as the topic was just necro'd :) I wasn't referring to you Daz, just the guy ice8629 who left a bit of a rude comment - that probably caught me at a bad moment. Anyone can make videos of whatever they want :)

Hi gents and gentesses.


I humbly apologise for bumping this hugely old thread, but I have the original R-type on disc (I've only recently got back into the CPC world) but I would LOVE to try the 128kb version mentioned herein.


What is the best method of obtaining it?


(.dsk is fine as my Gotek now works without frying my USB drives, yes I did plug the 12v supply into it)


I will happily take the abuse for resurrecting this thread, but I'm still learning where best to find stuff.


Regards.

CPC-power is a good database of CPC games and you can download most from there (though the captcha thing is a bit annoying)Here's the page for R-Type 128k. Click the floppy disk tab to go to the download screen.

CPCgamereviews is also useful for skimming through and seeing short reviews of various CPC games (not a complete list but many well known titles are there) and the game download link is the title text of the game
