In order to successfully win over the hearts of these girls, the player will have to do well in stages and boost their stats (intelligence, athleticism, style and lewdness) so they are appealing. Players even get to choose a character class (which includes one called Hentai Fiend which features 100% lewdness) to help them out. Gal*Gun doesn’t do a great job of explaining these systems (so don’t be surprised if you get a bad ending on your initial playthrough), so it’ll take some trial and error to figure everything out. It’s not perfect, but it’s by far the most interesting mechanic in the game and offers up replayability.
Gal*Gun: Double Peace has a surprising amount of heart for a game that has its head lodged firmly in a gutter full of panties. The characters are likable, the plot is goofy in its seriousness, and the premise is so over the top that I couldn’t help but laugh. Sadly, the gameplay simply doesn’t hold up its end of the bargain. This on-rails shooter is too simplistic and doesn’t do a good job of keeping the gameplay feeling fresh.
Gal*Gun 2 is set to launch on March 15, 2018 for the PlayStation 4.
