Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Humanity is at war against vampires and deviants. Mankind’s last line of defense is a group of children trained to wield powerful magic that can rival the demonic hordes, but at the cost of most of their lifespan. Likened to bullets of a gun, they are known as the ‘Gun Bullet Children’. The time is NOW! A vampire invasion force has been detected in the airspace above Tokyo Portal 5. Preliminary reports indicate over 500 vampires and accompanying Killings Dolls with reinforcing hordes of deviant humans. The first line of defenses has been obliterated and the Gun Bullet Children are scrambled to launch a counter-assault and stop the invasion.

eXceed Gun Bullet Children is the first in a series of bullet hell shoot em up games. You can choose from three different characters with their own stories but you will not be able to understand the story unless you can read Japanese. The game uses the arrow keys on the keyboard to move and z,x, and c to shoot, slow your movement, and to use bombs. You can change the keys and even get it to recognize a controller but you can not change the movement keys. The music is mostly pretty dull. The backgrounds of the five levels are very uninteresting, as are the designs of enemies. There is little satisfaction from destroying enemies. Even if you can read Japanese to understand the story GMG sells much better shoot em up games than this, including this games sequels.
