Info over het spel

The human powers-that-be called for the purification of mankind and the eradication of vampires and ‘deviants bloodlines’ - those born of a mix of human and vampire. And so began massive purges of the deviants that were reminiscent of the 'witch hunts' of centuries earlier. Leading the genocide was the exorcist corps the 'Gun Bullet Children'.

As the overwhelmingly large human armies began to obliterate every vampire and deviant community across the world, the opposing deviant armies sought to gather allies and rally back. Ria File is a half-human, half-vampire girl fighting on the side of the deviants as they embark upon a turnaround strategy, the 'Siege on the Holy Land'. Their plan: to lay siege upon the humans’ 'Holy Land' and to destroy the Holy Lady Anhel who was the source of the human military power. This is a battle in which defeat is an option for neither army.

Featuring an addictive dual-polarity gameplay system, this amazing vertical shmup is sure to please any shooter fan. The polarity and color of your character can be changed to absorb enemy bullets of the same polarity while charging the special weapon in the process and doing double damage to enemies of the opposite polarity. Every bullet absorbed charges your special weapon for total destruction. With awesome music, beautiful art, and challenging stages, this game that put the eXceed series on the map and has everything you would want from a shmup.

Key Features:

  • Dual-polarity gameplay system
  • 8 frenetic stages
  • Dynamic difficult balancing, depending on the player’s skill
  • Chain bonus scoring system
  • Cutscene-driven story-telling

A person basically combined Touhou and Ikaruga.

This is because that person hates you.

This game is amazing! To me, it's a combination of my old favorite vertical scrolling games like Touhou, Raiden, and Gradius (I know this ain't exactly vertical scrolling). On the hardest mode ever, it is still pretty punishing for me, but there is a storyline as you fight through levels and I know I will be playing this game a lot when I have the time to. If you are into the three games I mentioned above, this game is worth a try.

Before you start complaining, this came out before Ikaruga by about a few months.
This game is better because it has lolis in it

eXceed 2nd - Vampire REX, the sequel to Gun Bullet Children, has everything that the 1st one lacked: Astonishing graphics, a soundtrack you'll want to own, and tight gameplay.

The game is story-wise a sequel to Gun Bullet Children, but this time you'll side with the vampires against the Church and their Gun Bullet Children. You play as Ria File, a half-human, half-vampire (aka a deviant bloodline). She has the ability to shift polarity: switch elements to absorb bullets of the same element while the other type becomes fatal. This is a mechanic that shouldn't be unknown to Ikaruga players. The game also has a dynamic difficulty implemented, whereas long survival and scoring gets you in a higher difficulty while playing, and dying reduces the difficulty. The overal difficulty of the game is okay. It might be tricky at first for newer people, but you'll get the hang of it quickly.

Although there isn't much to the story in most danmaku shooters, this one had a story i liked. The game references characters from the previous game as well. Just like the previous game, the characters have voicing in Japanese, and unlike Gun Bullet Children, this one has an official translation in the game.

The soundtrack was made by Saitama Saishu Heiki and Shibayan, well known names in the doujin world, and this soundtrack delivers, just like their other works. The boss music fits rather well with the bosses' personalities or significance in the story, whereas the stage music either takes it a bit easier or just gets really tense to prepare you for your next big challenge.

This game is just fantastic and is among my favourite danmaku shooters now. They really outdid Gun Bullet children by far. You can get it for 6 EUR, but i'd be willing to pay double price for this game.

Also, i didn't find the OST on Steam, but you can purchase it from the tennen-sozai site.

Is it wrong of me that dispite how I like this game I kind of wish it was about a vampire dinosaur? I mean come on... that would be an amazing game no matter what! But enough about my fantasies lets talk about the second eXceed game.

Vampire REX is the second eXceed game and compared to the first one it is amazing, this time around eXceed is taking cue from Ikaruga, meaning the bullets that are fired in this Bullet Hell are colored red and blue, and you are able to switch between the two colors as well alowing you to absorb the bullets to charge your cannon attack and chain together combos. The better you do at the game the higher the difficulty gets, thus letting the game dynamically changed based on how you are doing.

While the game still doesn't do anything unique, and trust me I know it is hard to do something unique in a Bullet Hell these days, this game is vastly superior to the first in just about every way, the music is better, the art is better, and the overall game is a lot more well designed.

If I had to knock it for something I would say that it is not as replayable as it could be as you are only able to play as one character with no weapon powerups and there are just eight stages, and while the story is better that is not saying much, it is still insane and nonsensical though that comes with the territory for these games. Even with all of that for fans of these kinds of shooters this game is very much worth it and I highly recommend it.

While I wasn't the least bit impressed with the first eXceed, Vampire REX is on a whole other level, so much as to completely eclipse its predecessor! Borrowing Ikaruga's color swapping mechanic, eXceed 2nd is a much more strategic and engaging game full of intricate bullet patterns and impressive boss battles, that demands concentration and forces you to use all your abilities in quick succession if you want to survive.

Even though it lacks anything truly original (besides the nonsensical and thankfully entirely optional dialog), and the frame rate is still liable to fluctuate at times, eXceed 2nd has greatly improved on all fronts and is a great bullet-hell shooter in its own right. Tight controls, crazy amounts of action, a hefty challenge, and an incredible soundtrack; there's little more I could ask for, which makes Vampire REX an easy recommendation for any fan of the genre!
