this is very enjoyable game. Though, some controllers are no compatible with this, game and can cause a prblem, like the \"up\" button being selected forever. And I mean FOREVER.
using the keyboard is kinda non-intuitive.

It's just a simple 2D fighting game with pretty anime girls (perverted fighting game) lol. Really that's all it is haha. It has a very tiny story. I really like the artstyle of this game. The final boss was HARD AS ♥♥♥, holy sht was the boss hard. I couldn't even get up off the ground without her constantly ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me with this bullsht attack she kept using on me at a distance. It was really pssing me off. I chose another character named Yui Kutuna (Looks like Hatsune Miku with a wooden sword) and managed to beat the boss. It was fun I suppose.

I give it a thumbs up for the artstyle and for the fact I was actually able to beat the damn boss :D

Basic garbage fighter-- there are other games out there worth your time.

Just basic features like pausing the game are not available. Pausing the game usually brings up options like... back to menu, reset match, look at move list.. But yea, none of that.

I dont know if i should recommend this game or not. I had gotten it as a gift from a friend, But if you look at the amount of time i have put into it its not that much. All it is really is a 2D Anime fighter. Not really a story with it or anything. If there is a story I didn't care enough to follow it. The graphics look great and the animation is nice to look at. The controls are fluid and very responsive. what really turns me off from putting more time into it is that its Anime based. I don't care for Anime at all. I care nothing for the genre and dont really feel the need to continue to play the game. So all that said I am going to give this game a thumbs down and only recommend it for play if its on sale.

It took me around 330 hours to figure out if this game is good or not. In the end, I cannot recommend it.

For now it has some missing features like in-game training stage (coming soon), online play, steam workshop and I bet the engine of this game does not support steam API yet. Doing combos is hard and you have to look at the manual outside of the game which is inconvinient and also the control is awkward for keyboard. Story is meh, DLC does not work either. Best to play it on a controller. the only good thing about this game is the artwork and characters all show panties. I tried to screenshot them, that's what all my playtime is spent for, but I can't, which is the worst thing of all.

Please give your player an option to change this strange control, especially the player who uses keyboard

Like Touhou Hisouten~Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Touhou Hisoutensoku~Choudokyugi Nyoruno nazowooe

By the way, it is great to see a construction to tell us how to use skill, but it does nothing for its gameplay unless you have a controller ( Sorry for my bad attitude but I also play Touhou Hisouten and Touhou Hisoutensoku with my laptop, both them have great control with my keyboard and I can change it easily )

If you really want to play this game, please buy a controller first. At least, its control is really sxcks with my keyboard

Well, after some issues with the OsX release, the developer worked fast enough to have it fixed in 2 days.
I wish more Japanese Developers ported their games to Mac Os X...

Pros:
- cool designs and animations
- each character has it's own different fighting style, pretty different from the others
- You CAN acces the move list while in game, just press START
- Ps3 controller support and you can configure the controls on the menu.
- Fanservice everywhere (if you're into that)
- reminds me of Waku Waku 7

Cons:
- would wish there were more characters to choose
- The Pause menu only shows the move list. It lacks a "quit to menu" "chose other chara" etc. options
- Only Arcade and Versus modes. Would be nice to have Online or a Practice mode, but for practice I guess you can play 2 player game and play alone.
- I miss Waku Waku 7

So, with all that, yes, I do recommend it if you're looking for a fun, anime style, girls only (fanservice aware) fighting game to play alone or with friends on LOCAL multiplayer.

It's a fun game when you just want to relax and pull some combos. With no online capabilities or a serious competitive community supporting this game, I can't find myself reccomending this game. However, it's a fun game to relax to.

Vanguard Princess

What kind of game is this? How do you play? What do you do?
Vanguard princess is a 2v2 fighter with an anime appeal.

Controls
Clucky and strange on keyboard, with no tutorial. it made it near impossible to play without an Xbox 360 controller. I still couldn't find any combo list or button mapping in game 3/10

Sound
The game sounds fine. The OST is alright, the voices are average, the sound effects are all alright. 7.5/10

Graphics
The anime style does the game well, everything looks good. I had a few config issues, but nothing major. Some of the characters need to put on more cloths or have alt costumes as well, but that’s entirely personal. 8/10

Difficulty
The game is near impossible to play with a keyboard, the controls are too clunky. Even with a gamepad it still felt weird, and I had a hard time progressing. 3/10

Overall
I can’t' recommend Vanguard Princess. Sure the game presents itself well, but its awful controls and difficulty make it a waste of time. I feel like Vanguard Princess is the victim here. It didn’t do anything wrong. if the controls were a bit better, it may be worth something. But sadly, the amount of games that can just do it better is too high. ask yourself, would you rather play this, or a classic SNK fighter like Mark of the wolfs or King of fighters.

6/10 For Fans only

now before i actually start the review i wanan say that if you don't have a controller you shouldn't buy the game because the controlls for a keyboard are pretty ♥♥♥♥ and if you change them they reset everytime you start the game.

+Fast combat
+Boobs
-♥♥♥♥♥♥ keyboard controlls

Unlimited Waifu Works

White haired glasses girl with Detailed Pantsu, how bad could it be ?

Reminds me with Tekken I played back then, just mashing all buttons.

Cons:
- If you want to fight with AI, you have to play story mode
- Low resolution, not support 16:9

Runs great on Windows 10 64-bit. Perfect for time killer while your computer in high process like rendering heavy stuff.

Best game I ever purchase for a price of Chicken Rice.

Don't be mislead by my short play time, recently I didn't had internet for 3 months so I had a lot of time to play it but somehow steam havent registerred it...
---
I tried to enjoy this game... but for me it makes no sense even if I am quite good (enough to beat up all my friends in Skullgirs and most levels in Blazblue), but this...
I know the strenghts and weaknesses of my characters, I know how to use supports... I read manual...
And yet it is the only game I know that you can play up to the highest standards and still lose since blocking and dmg calculation doesn't seem to have much sense as far as I played...

Buyer's remorse kicked in too late for me to get a refund...oh well.

I can't recommend this game and here are my reasons:

1 - This is a free doujin game and no one has ever heard word from the original developer about this localisation. That and the publisher never explained how they got the rights to sell it.

2 - The characters they're selling as DLC have always been in the original game.

3 - Not all DLC characters work together which is ridiculous, just look at what I wrote on top of this. All these characters were on the original game to begin with, how come they won't work together now?

4 - The gameplay is dull, clunky and awkward. You don't need to go for combos at all, you can just break the AI by spamming any kind of attack when they perform a wake up.

5 - The game gets boring really fast. REALLY. FAST.

DON'T. BUY. IT.

Like I love fighting games of all types but the options are so shallow, it's like swimming in a kiddy pool. You can't adjust the audio at all, can't play online without a 3rd party hook up, and the help bar literally just tells you who this game is made by. I like the characters and moves but the "storyline" this game offers is just a bunch of characters you fight in a row to the boss. Bruh, you gotta watch like a minute opening sequence that you can't mute everytime you launch this game. One of the most lazy fighting games evar.

2D game where you can see girls fighting(and those bouncing boobs) with their supporters. A 2v2 fighting game where you pair them to have powerful partner to form an unstoppable team. This would be fun to play but there are lack or missing in the game.

Things that should be add/fix :
• Tutorial/Practice mode for the newbie and for practicing the combo/skill.
• Add characters and combos
• Fix Fullscreen mode
• Game Controller

Is it a good fighting game? Ehhh?
I don't really play fighting games apart from Tekken so I wouldn't really be a good judge on how it is as a fighting game itself but theres a long list of problems that just bug me.
-Characters seem unbalanced: Some can do special throws that take away half of your health yet they don't count as a SPECIAL move so it doesn't behave as a special attack so it can be done repeatedly. Some characters have ranged weapons which they can spam. All in all the characters aren't bad but you can get some unfair matches that you really don't have any way of winning
-Supports don't do much: From what I've expirenced your loli supports don't really do a whole lot? Some seem really ♥♥♥♥ in terms of moves. You probably won't get a chance to use them much anyway seeing as how you get penelized from getting hit some certain way? I don't understand it. Also it seems you can't counter with the supports, it seems your support won't do damage if the opponent is just recovering from a hit or hitting or just preformed a hit. It's odd.

All together as a game I'd rank it a 6/10 but as a fighting game it's more of a 3/10. I know it's on an older engine but it seems the company that bought the rights to this game doesn't seem to really know anything about fighting games and balancing them.
