Gal Gun: Double Peace PS Vita PS4

Gal Gun: Double Peace is a railgun shooter that does away with zombies or groups of mercenaries. Instead, trek your way through a bright and colourful academy, fending off your fellow female students! Why? Because they all want a piece of you. You’ve been struck by a cupid angel and have become irresistible to everyone.

You need to fend off love letters and kisses, battling your way through to find your true love by the end of the day, or face dire consequences. Shoot the advancing students and teachers with your “pheromone shot” to fend them off! Railgun-wise it’s perhaps most reminiscent of House of the Dead, though the style and tone couldn’t be more different.

The player can choose the look and style of their character and then send them off as they battle their way through each level taking care not to be hit by the ricocheting lasers. Thanks to the randomly generated levels no play through is ever the same and the “master of the dance floor” can be viewed on the online leader boards.
