Azure Striker Gunvolt (3DS eShop)

Game Profile

The evolution of 2D Action games!! When lightning strikes, a new legend will be born.

"Azure Striker GUNVOLT" is a 2D side-scrolling action game. The heroe's agility and control over lightning create a fresh approach to the genre that gives the player a unique feeling of speed and power.

Pierce your enemies with the devastating power of lightning! Gunvolt uses a lethal technique called “Flashfield”, which will always hit locked-on enemies. The more advanced players can try to reach a higher score by defeating 2 or more enemies at once.

The song of the heroine "Lumen" gives power to Gunvolt! Even if Gunvolt during the battle, he can be revived by the song power of Lumen and fight again. And when player piles up scores without suffering damage, the background music turns into her song.

At the end of each stage, a powerful boss will be awaiting the player! Fully voiced mid-battle conversations increase the player's excitement exponentially.

Hz so good

The pedigree behind Azure Striker Gunvolt is the stuff of dreams for a Mega Man-inspired game. Inti Creates, after all, was the team behind the excellent Mega Man Zero series, the Mega Man ZX series, and the classic Mega Man "rebirth" titles Mega Man 9...

Still no review or anything.
Here's mine:
Inafking kidding me, was my first impression, mainly because I was playing the freebie MG as ASG was downloading.

Get it.

I haven't finished it but I'm having lots of fun with Azure Striker Gunvolt even just farming for materials and xp.
The dialog is fun, and pretty raunchy at times, earning its rating.
The freebie, Mighty Gunvolt, is ridiculous and easy, but fun none the less. It successfully ate up my time until I played through it with all three characters. And it's still fun to replay.

MG is so fun to play! ASG is really good! The only thing I don't like this game is if you die or keep dying there is a small U will get "help"...and I don't know how to turn it off.... Feel like such a loser whenever this help comes because it's the equivalent to those "Super Mario Super Guides." T__T
