Trading Card Title Modifications

July 10th, 2014

Hi everyone,

Due to feedback from users purchasing Gunhound EX trading cards from the Steam Marketplace, we have slightly modified the title of one of the trading cards to make the two Juliane Yuri cards easier to differentiate from each other.

I hope this helps card collectors find the card they need to craft their next Gunhound EX badge.

About the 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.

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.

Very pleasantly surprised that this of all games got localized and released on Steam! Put some time into the Playism version and this seems like a great Assault Suit style game so far. It's great-looking, certainly a far cry from GIGANTIC ARMY, and probably in the same ballpark as Leynos 2. Very satisfying and hefty mech controls with awesome Valken-style dashing and landing. All signs point to this game being best played without using any continues, and it seems fairly challenging to do that. I'm looking forward to really digging in.

I love games like this. It reminds me of a mix of Veigues Tactical Gladiator and Metal Slug.
This is a great port of the PSP version with some awesome new features!
One being able to sync your iOS or Android device to the game for real time events to play out on your device as you play the game! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!? :O

For a demonstration of what I'm talking about, watch my YouTube video showing it in action. :)

Fantastic 2D action game, great update to the gameplay formula layed down by the Assult Suits games. It's no suprise that the developers behind this are working on a new Assult Suits Leynos game.

One interesting thing this game does that isn't really touted, is the smartphone link feature. You can get all the fully voiced in game story in real time on your phone, like a little coms device! Adds a lot to the feeling of a mech game, unfortunatly, this feature doesn't have an english text option.

The game is a little short, but is ment to be replayed for score. It took me a little over 3 hours to go though the game, but I'm looking forward to score attacking it. As short as the game is, it's packed with content, no filler here, just straight up action.

Reccomended to 2D Action game fans, and people who know the difference between a real robot and a super robot.
