DotEmu has announced that the classic arcade game that they have brought over to Android called R-Type is now compatible with the Zeemote JS1. The Zeemote is a bluetooth controller with an analog stick and four button in which you can map out depending on what game you're playing.
For those of you who are not familiar with R-Type, it is a retro side-scrolling space shooter that was actually pretty tough of a game to beat back in the days of arcades. DotEmu specializes in bringing these games to various platforms for retro game fans to enjoy, such as Android. With the latest update to R-Type bringing Zeemote support, DotEmu is partnering up with a few select site to give away a staggering 150 Zeemotes per site.
It was a tough game to play back then and DotEmu has kept it as close to the original as possible with only modifying the controls to suit mobile devices. Now you can get really into the whole arcade feel of R-Type by using a Zeemote. If you haven't yet nabbed this classic game off the Android Market, you can do so for only $2.99.
