If you fancy an awesome, retro, space, shoot 'em up then you can't get much more of a classic than R-Type that has made it's way to BlackBerry 10. If you are as old as me you'll remember playing this one as a teenager, however it's a great game still and well worthy of checking out. 

Quite simply - you control a spaceship and it's just a case of destroying the vast array of enemies that will try to shoot you down. There are two options for controlling your spacecraft - either touch or a virtual joy pad, although touch is the much easier option. Over on the right of the display you have a two weapons tabs. One sends out a powerful blast if you hold it down and the second will control the orb like bonus that you can pick up. 

All the original features from the 1980's have been left in the BlackBerry 10 version. There are loads of weapons, power-ups and attachments you can collect along the way. That is if you master the game - it's blooming hard! I was clearly a much better gamer as a teenager - oh the good old days. 

If you like a fast paced, action packed game then this one is a well worthy download. R-Type will set you back £1.50/$1.99 and is available for all BlackBerry 10 handsets.
