An experiment to explore the limits of the original R-Type graphics by Bob Pape: Is it possible to enhance them while retaining the aesthetics of the original arcade game? I believe the answer is yes. However, the original effort was so well-executed that many cannot discern the differences without a GIF for direct comparison. :)"

It's about 25 years earlier when I was trying to redo Bob Pape's spaceship sketch. I found this on my old drive: https://i.ibb.co/wCsYvYF/r-type.png

You can upload it, for example, here :) As a last resort, you can turn off voting for the drawing and it will remain simply as a historical reminder :)

Robert was the programmer. In his ebook "It's Behind You", he credits Mark A. Jones for the level graphics (not just the title screen).
