"Influenced by the Assault Suits Valken (Cybernator) series. Heavy controls give the sense of maneuvering an armored mech in a 2D story-rich action game."

About This Game

Gunhound EX is the PC version of the cult PSP mech action release that pits players' armored Gunhound mechs against scores of mechanized military foes.

In the search for a new renewable resource, humanity has discovered a powerful new one: neutron polymer. Integral to the expansion of modern society, alliances form and shatter as countries jockey to get their hands on the resource. A small southeast Asian nation is in the throes of civil war, but its concentrated deposits of neutron polymer are about to make the conflict a worldwide affair.


Features:
  • Eliminate robotic foes with your Gunhound across multiple stages of mayhem.
  • 360 degree aiming for precision strikes.

Visceral gameplay, kickass presentation and stellar level design makes learning the at first unwieldy control scheme and lock-on system well worth it. There is also a time-based scoring system that greatly boosts the replay value of the game. Some of the best mecha action you can get on Steam.

The only major issue is that Gunhound's steam release is an almost direct port of the PSP original, so there are a lack of options in the game menus, be sure to press alt+enter if you want to go fullscreen, because there is no in-game option to do so.

Featured in Episode 99 of Bullet Heaven HD!

***We love our mecha-based run-and-gunners here on Bullet Heaven, and while Gigantic Army was well and good, we always had deep, tearful feelings for Gunhound EX, but she'd always been just out of our grasp. Thankfully, Playism (Active Gaming Media) has brought this fast-paced, super polished shooter west... but how does it stack up?***

Very fun game, very similar to the old mech games from the SNES era such as Cybernator and Metal Warrior if you are fortunate to have played them. The ability to customize your mech with different weapons and even change the color scheme is also a nice feature to have even though I have not unlocked any new stuff they do give you a couple things to start with.

I will say that the only negative I can think of at the moment would be that the zero gravity missions have a very wonky feel to them as I have a hard time aiming and not spinning but this is most likely due to me not having enough practice with the controls.

So if you are a fan of old retro side scrolling mech games I think this game will fit the bill as I have not seen anything like this since the old SNES days.

This game is great- it's a modern take on the Cybernator \ Assault Suits Valken \ Metal Warriors kind of shooter.

You pilot a "realistic" style mech (think something out of VOTOMS) and blast the hell out of anything in your way. The controls feel really good and weighty, the music is great, and it's just plain old fun.

If you like mecha, or quality 2D shooting games, get this. It's like a gem you'd find on the PS1.
