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

Sadly this game doesn't come with any translated text, all I see is symbols which are supposed to be Japanese characters (I assume since it's a Japanese game and I don't have those fonts installed)
The controls are a mess to figure out and there's not really any info (that I can understand) on how to play the game.

Of course that didn't stop me from fiddling around a bit and it turns out it's a bit of an "arcade style" 2D birds-eye view shooting game. Apparently there's a background story to it that's completely lost to me so if anyone with Japanese understanding would like to elaborate feel free to do so.

The shooting patterns become increasingly difficult to dodge and the entire game is accompanies by some techno beats that jell pretty well with the game in my opinion.

So if you're after anything story related this is a clear pass. If you just want to spend some time shooting stuff and dodging bullets in plain and simple shooter game, this is probably worth trying out.

I wouldn't spend anything over 1€ on this old-non-english game. So get it on sale or as an gift if you really want to try it.

I bought this along with the bundle with other 3 games.
exceed2nd costs $5.99 and 3rd costs $5.99 while the 3 games cost $9.99 total.

that's how I owned this game. This game is verrrrrrry slow paced, frames per second is in the 14s even on a nice gaming rig. Not optimized for 30 fps means for a slow gameplay. Even on the hardest mode in the game, you could literally just dodge all the bullets because of how slow it is. I cannot recommend this game itself at all. If you plan to buy the 2nd or 3rd versions of exceed and it's cheaper with this game included, you can get it. Otherwise, if the pricing is not the case, I would stay away from this game.

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:

PROS:
+ 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.

CONS:
- 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!

eXceed isn't a terrible game, but it is an entirely inessential one. It gets the fundamentals of a bullet hell game right but does nothing unique to distinguish itself, and with so many other similar, better games to choose from (including two superior sequels) I'm at a loss to come up with any reason to spend time with it. The overly compressed graphics and audio, and the inability to save or continue a previous game also cause it to feel particularly dated and archaic, presuming you actually manage to make it work.

I can't exactly call it broken, but eXceed has major problems running on modern computers. For reasons I'm still unclear about it's virtually impossible to get the originally intended 60fps on anything but ancient hardware, and with the speed of the game directly tied to the frame rate less than that is functionally like playing in slow motion. With enemies and bullets moving at a snails pace the action changes from fun and challenging to downright boring. I'm not joking when I say I had more trouble keeping myself awake than completing the first three levels, at which point I just couldn't take it anymore.

Outside of for free I wouldn't recommend eXceed, and even then only to those with an old computer lying around to play it on. Everyone else can skip straight to the sequels and not miss anything, as the original is now little more than a placeholder.
