Ok guys, this recommendation is more like guideline, so im going to tell my opinion about this game right now, if you are new on this game, just bought it or something, check out the text down there, it might help you out. But now to the game itself:

+ Really good few hour gaming experience
+ If you are new to bullethell or you want to try it, add this to your cart when the next sales comes (Or download touhou), its so much fun.
+ The trading cards are worth about 0,20€ each.

- No proper instructions
- Pretty expensive compared to the length of game (If on summer sales or winter sales, totally worth it)
- Pressing ESC will shut down the game (Not pausing)
- Needs English sub patch if you dont want to see random symbols

And now my guide for the starters of this game:

Okay, first thing I'd like to let you know about this game is that THERE IS NO ENGLISH SUBTITLES UNLESS YOU DOWNLOAD THE PATCH FROM THE INTERNET. There is really simple Guide by hum79 that can help you get that thing done.

Now to the game. In the beginning, you select options with arrow keys. To select, you need to press Z. Also you might want to try the PRACTISE MODE before you try the MISSION mode, just to try the characters. Also if you are new to bullethell games, my advice is to change the mode from NORMAL to EASY from options (Unless it already on EASY).

Now lets move to the gameplay, which might feel a little weird at the start of the game. You shoot from Z, Slow by holding X and use your BOMB pressing C. You also have this bar on your left which will fill when killing enemies. When its full, release Z (Shoot) and press it again to do decent damage blast. At the start you have 3 lives and 3 BOMBS, but you can collect these blue crystal-like pieces from enemies. When you collect them you can gain extra life. The enmies also drop Purple crystals that are called "Reinforcement". When you collect the amount that the bar on your right side shows, you get the reinforcement and start shooting more bullets and much faster.

Well thats pretty much it I hope this recommendation helped someone, if not, im terribly sorry. Have a nice time playing this game!

Fun side scroller. If you like side scroller than this is the game for you. I belive it has come down in price since I bought it (from £4.99 to £1.99). Unfortunatly there is a clear lack of instructions so its worth going online before-hand and searching controlls.
Graphics look old school arcade type. All around a fun game for a hour or two but with a distinct lack of save options you habve to play the game all the way through to finish it in one go.

7/10 Fun but not something you'll play for hours every day

THIS...this would be absolutely effing epic if they could fix the fps, put in the steam overlay, and fix some of the controls, plus do a translation.

EDIT: go through forums. there's a fix for language and a fix for fps.
although.... the company themselves should be fixing this, not the customers.

Even as is, totally worth the $1 i paid for it.
Extremely underrated compared to the rest of the series.
the extremely long boss battles actually somewhat add to the gameplay, I think... kind of a mental endurance game.
Soundtrack is great. Shibuyan's also done a ton of Touhou Project arranges as well.

The game developers should push for steam acheivements, leaderboards, and some soundtrack dlc, etc. There's a lot of potential here that's being missed out on.

Okay, lets get one thing out of the way first... "Gun Bullet Children" is an amazing title for a game, sadly when it comes down to it this one is not worth it.

This is the first eXceed game in a Bullet Hell series, meaning the screen becomes littered with bullets and you must dodge them while shooting, that spans three games, it is also the cheapest and for good reason, this is about as bare bones as you can get with a shooter of this kind, and in many ways it is very lifeless.

The graphics are sub-par even for the kind of game it is, backgrounds are shotty, once more the word "Lifeless" comes to mind, bullets are nothing but red dots and arrows, enemy design is lackluster and repeated, and overall there is not a single thing this game does that could be called unique, even the story is cliche, though insane as all Bullet Hell games seem to be when it comes to the plot, and speaking on that the game is not at all translated, I had to download a english patch and even then it was full of grammatical errors/

You can play as one of three characters, each with their own kind of shooting mechanics and bombs, play in a few gameplay modes, but overall nothing about Gun Bullet Children is worth the price of admission.
