What is R-Type Tactics

R-Type Tactics is a strategy game (hex grids, turn based) based on the popular
shooter franchise "R-Type." This is NOT the first shooter to have been con-
verted to a strategy game, believe it or not. At least two other shooter fran-
chises have been converted: Parodius to Paro Wars and Gradius to Cosmic Wars.

Is there no shooting?

That is correct, this is a strategy/tactics game. No shooting (apart from
classic turn-based style)

Does the game support wireless play?

Ad-hoc only and 2 copies of the game/2 PSPs are required.

Friendly fire damage?!

Yes, wave guns and similar area attack (charge weapons) give damage to all units
within attack range, friend or foe.

Is there Fog of War?

Yes, Fog of War is implemented in this game and the enemy is subject to it's
effects in the same manner that the player is.

Can we play as Bydo forces?

Yes, once you complete the Earth campaign you can play a new Bydo campaign.

Does the game support multiplayer?

Only through WLAN (Ad-Hoc) mode. Infrastructure is not supported.
