In-game Training Stage

Many gamers have made an issue calling for an in-game training mode so we're working on it. We'll add this update for all of the versions. The VP community has created a guide to go into Practice Mode in the current version.

The update should be automatically updated in several weeks.

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.

The game is pretty good. Just wish it had a legit practice mode instead of just trying things in Vs mode. Overall, I do like the game a lot. It's not as easy as it seems.

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

Utter utter garbage...like stinking garbage can garbage, something that should be thrown away or taken down and money refunded.
Crap controls, crap mechanics and no gameplay at all. This isn't even worth £2.00

DON'T BUY!

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

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.

Ultimately I like the game and the team has updated it a few times since I bought it last year, so I'm recommending it, but that recommendation comes with some warnings.

Smooth animations and solid controls. You get an Arcade mode and Versus. There is a way to make Versus into Practice mode but it should just be its on own on the main screen instead.

No online play.

To the devs' credit, I got this game last year and they have updated it a few times since. They added D-Pad support as well as in-game move lists. These should have already been there, but at least they did go back and add them.

Snag this one on sale.

At $5 standard I can't quite recommend it as is, even though I enjoy it when I play it. There are other fighters out there with online play and added modes that are more worth the $5 and above you'd be asked to pay.

I will update this review if/when they update the game again and I play it. Thanks for reading, hope this was helpful.

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.
