    Reached stage 2/6 in R-Type II Classic Mode. This is a great looking game.

    Stage 2 of R-Type II is pretty tricky. I don't think I ever beat it on the Amiga. The enemies that shoot through the Force unit is a real problem to deal with. Reaching the end boss is hard enough, but I realized an important trick to beating it: you can actually duck under its drop-down attacks. And you have to make its weak point change positions 5 times to beat it.

    Reached stage 3/6 in R-Type II Classic Mode. WHAT THE? I killed the end boss in three attacks? OK, good riddance.

    I wanted to try a more faithfully emulated R-Type II stage 4 - corresponding to stage 5 of Super R-Type, that I've been struggling with. The arcade version of this level looks like crap, but at least the frame rate holds up. But it's still pretty difficult.

    After playing the original, I also played a single credit's worth of the sequel, only reaching level 2.
