Über dieses Spiel

Die Menschen sind im Krieg gegen Vampire und Abartige. Die letzte Verteidigungslinie der Menschheit gegen die dämonischen Horden ist eine Gruppe von Kindern, die darin trainiert wurden gewaltige magische Kräfte auszuüben, allerdings auf Kosten ihrer Lebenszeit. Verglichen mit den Kugeln eines Gewehrs, sind sie als die "Gun Bullet Children" bekannt.

JETZT ist die Zeit gekommen! Eine Vampir-Invasionsgruppe wurde über dem Tokio Portal 5 entdeckt. Vorläufige Berichte weisen auf über 500 Vampire begleitet von tödlichen Puppen und verstärkenden Horden von abartigen Menschen hin. Die erste Verteidigungslinie wurde ausradiert und die "Gun Bullet Children" sind zusammengekommen, um einen Gegenangriff zu starten und die Invasion zu stoppen.

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!

If you loved Touhou you will love this game too.
It's really challenging and fun to play I could play this for hours

+ cheap
+ japanese girls
+ 60 fps
+ hours of fun (I guess I'am the only one)

- if you can't understand japanese you have to download a english patch
- you quit the game if you press the escape button or minimize it
- controls

* It's an old, hard game; runs in 4:3 fixed low resolution
* know your controls! Z=shoot, B=slow movement/fast shoot, C=bomb, V=pause (thanks HeavyKin!)
* you must download english translation for this game (eg here http://steamcommunity.com/app/207370/discussions/0/846960628528861706/)
* easy/hard mode does change things... until it comes to bosses. Boss fight is always purely insane!
* 3 characters = 3 different shooting styles, 3 different dialogue stories (I think it sum up to whole plot)
* the game may feel kinda short, though you will be proud when you beat the last boss!
* get some wallpapers of this game, they are great

Needs cards and achievements like a lot of games but there are three already and going backwards is hard for smaller series. I love it, reminds me of Ikaruga on the level of controlled chaos, or Raiden Fighters a little. Those nothing compares to though. I think an option to semi translate and translate would be nice, the japanese has a nice look but I remember the menus being unorthadox, probably orthadox in eastern games though, who knows. Good game, I bought it on SBM for a little over $2.

What are the good things about this game?
-Very intense and fast bullets coming your way! Very nice.
-There are six different stages and three different difficulties.

What are the bad things about this game?
-Playing this game requires 60 fps. If you do not have 60 fps, you need to go through a fix to get the game to run 60 fps. This game is intended to run at 60 fps, not 30, not 15. 60!
-The game itself doesn't support anything XP and higher... which is why you will randomly frame lag and feel that the pace of the game is very slow. Find a fix to make the game run 60 FPS and you are good.

Note:
-Everything is in Japanese... but Steam should've already told you so this isn't a complaint...

This game would have been a 10/10 but considering players would have to go through the trouble to fix a game rather than an update from its developers, I'll give it a 9.5 out of 10 instead.

eXceed Gun Bullet Children is the first game in the eXceed series (duh) and is probably the most forgotten one due to the source of its game being lost long ago. Other than its issues, the game itself is enjoyable, but not quite as enjoyable as the 2nd or 3rd game. I'm going to state the issues now and get to the real review later:

ISSUES:
-The game is always full screen at a very low resolution, which gets annoying for when I accidentally hit the Windows key and the game decides to crash at a white screen when I go back to it (this can be fixed by using the game with DxWnd, though).
-Pause is more like "stop" to the game. I press it, and I can't unpause it, so I have to restart.
-The whole game is at a very slow FPS rate before you apply a Compatility Tool (find it in the Steam forums or search Microsoft's site) fix. With the fix it went from 15 to 30 FPS, but with certain compatibility modes applied along with the fix, I got a full 60 FPS, though going faster during the story scenes (talking scenes, whatever). However, this worked for my computer, but didn't fix it for my laptop. It gets 20-28 FPS with the fix and modes, while 2nd and 3rd run perfect at 60 FPS with no fixes needed.

REVIEW:
eXceed - Gun Bullet Children puts you in place of the three characters Tinatu Kagaya, Sowel Devosiana, and Miyabi Housen. Each character comes with a unique attack. Tinatu shoots three spears at once, Sowel fires a rapid blue thing, and Miyabi is basically a flame thrower (she shoots fire in a line at a high speed so why not?). The whole game's story is hard to read without the translation patch (find it in the Steam forums or do a web search). Pretty much, you're fighting against vampires. I haven't made it passed the first level though....because I keep hitting V, the Windows key, and sometimes my pinky will slip and hit Control. I honestly wouldn't have minded a remake of this game since the source is gone and they can't update it, but come on, Capcom really could have remade this game themselves instead of releasing a very old version of it that even they themselves can't update or fix.

Overall I'll give this game 3/5. Most of the rating goes to the controls and how pressing Control can instantly take you out of the game and how pressing V ("pause") will set you in an infinite pause and you'll have to restart the game, needing a compatibility fix and translation patch doesn't effect this rating at all since they're so easy to find, so take off 2/5 for this, but keep the 3/5 for how fun the game is until you mess it up.

Also if I could make a suggestion, just skip this game and play 2nd and 3rd. Coming from my computers (my desktop and my laptop) they both have no issues, as far as I've seen, and don't need any fixes or translation patches, and as far as I know the only things you'll really miss are the three characters in this game and who they are and what they do, which all that is pretty obvious from the first level of this game, they're humans fighting against vampires.

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.

If you're a hardcore bullet hell fan, you likely already know everything there is to know about this game.

If you're a casual or average gamer who occasionally enjoys a trip through bullet hell, skip this title as there are much better shooters out there.

PROS - Controls are tight. Catch it on the right sale and you can get it for free once you sell the trading cards.

CONS - Low resolution (640x480 which can't be changed). No English.

MEH - Nearly everything else about this game.

Schlechtestes Spiel überhaupt. Warum?

- Steuerung: Man fühlt sich ziemlich verlassen, in dem Spiel, wenn man es gewohnt ist im Hauptmenü Enter drücken zu wollen, um was zu auszuwählen...Ansonsten werden die ganzen Tasten nicht erklärt und zudem wird auch die englische Tastaturanordnung benutzt. Leider bringt es auch nichts das Eingabeschema unter Windows zu ändern.

- Sprache: Die Japanische Zeichen sind verbuggt. Ich hab so ziemlich alle auf meinem Rechner drauf, nur im Spiel wird kein einziges Zeichen angezeigt

- Grafik; Nur eine Auflösung von 800x600 verfügbar. Ansonsten aber volles schönes Strahlen aufm ganzen Bildschirm.

- Klang/Musik: Wer Japanische Lieder von Animes oder anderen Spielen kennt wird sich erfreuen können. Es passt zum Spielstil.

- Spielverhalten/Gameplay: Ziemlich sinnlos. Man ballert einfach nur rum. Selbst, wenn man alle Leben verloren hat, kann man neu auferstehen. Das gibt wahrscheinlich abzüge in der Benotung oder sowas, aber die kann man ja nicht entziffern. Es ist auch ziemlich so gut wie unmöglich den Geschossen von den Gegner auszuweichen. Also sterben ist früher oder später sowieso dran.

Fazit: Gut zum sinnlosen rumballern mit fetziger Musik. Allerdings macht es sehr schnell langweilig und die Steurung is ja auch fürs Hinterteil. Immerhin der Wutknopf Esc funktioniert. Es beendet sofort das Spiel :)

Deutliche Probleme auf neueren Systemen. Läuft bei mir lediglich mit 13 bis 15 Frames (Win 8.1). Leider nicht sehr schön gealtert. Abgesehen davon sind die Bullets sehr eintönig.

Ein typisches Touhou Spiel. Hauptaufgabe ist es den unzähligen Projektilen auszuweichen, zweites Ziel ist es den Gegner zu treffen. Das ist dann auch schon das Gameplay.

Die Musik ist ganz nice, aber die Sprache, bzw die Dialoge sind alle auf Japanesiösisch sodass man einfach nichts versteht.

Touhou Spiele sind soweit ich weiß Free, holt euch lieber da was ;)

DONT.

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.

The first game in the eXceed is a straight Japanese import version, which means it has no english dialogue, for neither text nor voice
There's also no resolution settings or windowed mode option, so it always runs at a small resolution but full screen
If you have to choose one of the games from the series to buy, i'd not recommend this, pick up 2nd or 3rd instead

The first eXceed is a decent danmaku (aka bullet hell, manic) shooter. Although it pales in comparison to its sequels, by itself it is enjoyable, and has challenging boss fights.

Scoring mechanics are pretty simple, with a bullet grazing system to charge up your special attack. The game has an automatic death bomb option, which triggers a bomb (as long as you have one) when you're hit instead of you losing a life. It's a good option for those inexperienced with the genre. Controls and gameplay in general are tight and work as they should. Boss battles are entertaining and challenging, but the levels feel a bit too easy in comparison.

Visually, the game is a mixed bag. It runs only in fullscreen, at 640x480. The presentation is pretty basic, and the game way overuses the colour red (red is my favourite colour and I still feel this way). This overuse is also my main gripe with the game. As all the enemy bullets are the same shade of red, along with many other effects sometimes filling the screen, it sometimes feels like my eyes are twisting themselves in a knot and it's hard to distinguish the tons of bullets flying around for a moment, resulting in a lost life. The UI is also annoyingly hard to read for the same reason. The backgrounds vary from boring, to nice but the same smallish picture scrolling over and over. Certain effects, like explosions and boss phase switches, look good.
The soundtrack is awesome as is often the case with bullet hell shmups.

For replay value, the game has three difficulties, plus three characters with completely different weaponry/abilities requiring different tactics to clear the game. The game can be played in Story, Arcade (i.e. with or without dialogue/story), or Practice Mode, but sadly there's no high score or replay saving.

tl;dr, eXceed - Gun Bullet Children is a solid, fun danmaku shooter covered with a flawed presentation. The original game is only in japanese, however there is a patch to get the official english script into the game ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/207370/discussions/0/792924412090333459 ). It's also more newcomer friendly than many other titles in the genre, thanks to the auto-bomb and relatively simple scoring mechanics. Recommended for both veterans and beginners of, and anyone interested in, bullet hell shmups.
