Game Update: One Button Super Attack

We made updates to all versions of Vanguard Princess to make the "One Button/Key Super Attack" more known to beginners.

Instead of using two keys or buttons to activate a Super Attack or Parry, gamers can use one button or key; this was already known to long time Vanguard Princess gamers.

There are interfaces and graphics throughout the game to help gamers become aware of it.

Like all other controls in the game, the one button super/parry can be reconfigured on keyboards and gamepads to better suit gamers' needs.

The update is available now.

Very clunky, poor controller optimizations, bad 'support character' system. Glad I paid for this and all DLC when it was less than $5.00. Don't buy this unless you are out for hentai style fighting over an actual playable fighting game. 3/10

Pros:
-anime girls and pretty good graphics
-controls are simple, no crazy chains that will 100% you
Cons:
-Can't really chain attacks, so you can't 100% others
-5 assist characters 1 is op other 4 is useless and they walk right beside your character just to confuse you
-No practice mode
-No online match

Probably had too much expectation for the game so my review isn't really fair to this game, I thought this game would be like skull girls or melty blood or guilty gears. If you play a lot of fighting game then this game probably isn't for you.

Doesn't make full use of the controller. Can't activate special attacks using the thumbsticks. Very hard to tell the assist character from the main character.

So, I didn't play this game a lot, but it just didn't seem like a great fighter. It kinda relies on its anime style, fan service, and a cheap price tag.

However, I recently started playing Skullgirls, and it is infinitely better. If you want a good fighter, I'd find skullgirls on sale or in a bundle. The art, story, and mechanics are much better than Vanguard Princess. Fan service is there as well if you need that. There is a pretty good tutorial, though some of the sections are tough for people new to fighting games.

I feel like there are too many good fighters out there, and I feel no need to return to this one.

tbh, worth it, i never really found myself using the assistant much but its a short and fun game. Though the controls at times can be pretty hard to nail down im sure you can find a move you can keep spamming. The game has cute characters so you can play for all their endings, plus fight a friend... on your keyboard that is.

I'm far from a connoisseur of fighting games, anymore, so I'll have to offer this as an outsider perspective. Let's break this game down by each of its major points.

Visuals
The anime style, familiar in the genre, is animated fantastically (at least per my appreciation). It's bright and colorful. It's all clear as day. This game is truly beautiful to look at.

Audio
The sound is... Japanese.

Characters
In my experience playing, I flipped through the character roster, and just sort of landed somewhere and selected one. On sight, there were no obvious clues as to how they would perform. All the characters, both primary and backup, are women (okay, some may be girls, don't ask me to tell the age of an anime character).

Skirts
All of them are wearing some length of skirt, which will fly up repeatedly during battle, regardless - save for one character, who's just putting it out there from the get go. The character I managed to pick first has a skirt on that doesn't even reach down low enough to cover. It's... odd.

Underwear
All of the characters are wearing underwear, at that.

Boobs
Many characters have ludicrous, bobbling large boobs that would bring any helicopter off balance and crashing with one good heave of the chest.

Faces
Characters probably have faces.

Gameplay
One character I played does some attacks by thrusting with a trunk fairly full of junk, and otherwise fires her guns and such. Seems like one would be a wiser choice for pushing damage. There are bits of animation that occur between fights, during special moments in battle, at the start of certain attacks, and such. These are all likewise emboobled and wobbly, and loaded with close shots of panties and butts in curious positions and movements, and sometimes your enemy loses, or something.

This game is truly beautiful to look at.

Oh, yeah - two primary characters fight, and they each have a little assist character, blah, blah.

Controls
Controls are fully customizable, helping you do whatever it is that happens. I mashed buttons, I don't know. I tried to ease off and play somewhat more tactically, and it worked alright. It can be a tad unwiedly at times, but you knew as much. There is some depth to the arsenal of moves each character has. Lots of ways they can find to kick really high into strong wind.

This game is truly beautiful to look at.

Something or other/10

11/10 would waste time again.

doesnt run full screen, looks terrible in a window. oh and the background music will drive you loco during the 20 minutes that you spend on the 1st menu screen, trying to figure out how to select your game type.

absolute ♥♥♥♥e work. cant say how good the gameplay mechanics are... never got that far. yuck.

*edit. turns out the time wasted on the menu screen was some kind of bug. worked fine after a restart, although the game still hurt my eyes. once my safety goggles arrive i may try out the gameplay... but i doubt it.

I have collected all of the trading cards, made a badge, have over a day played, and beaten the game on all dificulties. It is time for a review.
I personally love this game. Saki is my favorite character. Do I recommend this game? Yes, but under certain circumstances. First, let's dive into the true pros and cons of this game. [READ EVERYTHING, INCLUDING MULTIPLAYER]

Pros:
+ Decent fighting system
+ The game runs perfectly fine (Even with WINE)
+ I got it for $1.50 or something like that on Amazon
+ Animations are great
+ Voice acting is good
+ Very fast pace
+Works 90% with Xbox 360 controller (Even through WINE[Still no D-Pad support])

To the cons:
-Little to no story
-Full screen is stretched if you have a widescreen monitor
-Full screen is just default window size and blurry
-Characters such as Lilith keep on spamming a move that will take down your health crazily. (Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=immWpTWSCuM )
-The game does not tell you the commands for the support. (It tells you that Y [Xbox Controller] is the way to activate support, but to actually use them properly. It requires you to move the joy stick in certain directions.

Conclusion: I will recommend this game because it is definitely fun. Of course it's not the absolute best fighting game out there, but for $1.50 or ($5.00 on steam) it's not really that bad. In fact it's fun to play. Other review say that it's only good for about two or so hours of gameplay, but if you give yourself challenges such as beating the game on all difficulties, then you will get the most or even more out of your purchase. For those who may understand, this is basically Marvel VS Capcom (the original), but with an anime/Japanese art style.

I didn't include this in the review, but I think people should know about it. You can play multiplayer with Vanguard Princess. I'm not talking about local, I'm talking about online.
If you want to play multiplayer with a friend, (because I could not for the life of me find any servers) then follow this post:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/262150/discussions/0/540744935955723372/?insideModal=1
Now, this explains MOST of what you need to do. But if you want to host your own server for your friends to join, you MUST..
*_ Open port 7500 to TCP and UDP
*_ Now that the port is open, open up MTSP
* In order to host a server for you and your friends, you must get your public IP here: http://www.whatismyip.com/ (Your IP is: ###.###.###.### <-- that long number)
* Once you have copied that number, go back to MTSP
* The Startup window should still be open, click the tab named "Encrypt IP"
* Paste your IP into the Unencrypted IP box and press the button "Encrypt"
* The box below it should have a whole bunch of numbers now
* You need to copy those numbers and go back to the "Select Mode" tab
* If you are making the server for your friends, make sure the current mode is "Server"
* Paste the number you got into the "Server Name" box and press okay [MAKE SURE IT IS STILL ON PORT 7500]
* Now your server is made and your friends can join
_For your friends, they follow the SteamCommunity post, then open port 7500. (I don't have to do TCP and UDP, but have them do it just to be safe)
_Once they open MTSP , they should have that same Startup box
_They need to click on "Client"
_Then they need to put the number the host recieved got earlier (The encrypted thing) into the "Destination IP" box
_[Make sure DNS is off, unless you know what you're doing] and then press OK
_This should result in joining the server. Right click someones name to the left and press challenge to fight them.
You should be set up now for Online vanguard princess. The reason I'm putting this here is because I had to find that community post, and then go through an ancient MTSP post on a Japanese website in order for it to work. (Because the servers are empty and may cause a high ping)
Hope this was helpful!
