G-Type is much like the 80s Nintendo game Section Z but for PC. The version of G-Type that we obtained was unfortunately the Japanese version, which caused us to guess some when installing the game.

Fortunately the in-game menus are in English but the documentation and installation program aren't. After a short installation we got the game to run and were met by some 80s 8-bit music. The graphics, music, game play and everything else are very retro. Sure it feels a bit strange to be playing this game after just peeking at the latest Doom 3 screenshots.

G-Type is if you haven’t already understood it set in space.You maneuver your space ship through a maze of evil enemies firing at you; your job of course is to get the enemies before they get you. Perhaps not a very original idea, and it has been done before a number of times.

A couple of minutes into the game I find myself laughing and having a great time trying to avoid being hit and at the same time firing. All of the firing is done on the CTRL-button, press it one time and get a burst, hold it for a sec and get a scattered burst and hold it for two sec and you got yourself a huge blast.

I like the way the developers have thought this out, you never have to remove your finger from the firing button to change weapon or anything, everything on one button, sweet. G-Type is quite hard even at the easy level, it takes time to get into the game and even then you find yourself constantly at the game-over screen.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, I believe in that games should be hard because they last a lot longer (in most cases). The graphics in G-Type as said before is very retro, you almost get the feeling of traveling back to the 80s for a while. I like the graphics, probably for nostalgic reasons, perhaps younger players won't like them that much.

Another larger problem with the game is when you get yourself killed and re-spammed, sometimes you can get re-spammed into a wall which isn't that great, this have to be fixed with a patch or something.

G-Type is a well-done game, however you may have to be ready to guess you through the installation since it's in Japanese (if you don't know Japanese that is). If you exclude the re-spamming problems which doesn't occur too often you got yourself a nice game.
