I've been playing a lot of Mighty Gunvolt Burst this week, on the Switch, and it's bloody awesome.

 

There's a really deep custom shot builder, where different effects (3 way shot, trajectory, bullet size and speed, ability to pass through enemies or walls, etc.) cost CP to equip. You've an amount of CP to "spend", and can collect more CP, and other effects, within the levels (usually hidden). Loving the "I've enough CP to buy a double jump, OR half my damage taken, but not both... unless I reduce the number of shots I can fire at a time from three to two?" of it.

 

The levels play out just like Mega Man levels, with some VERY Mega Man bosses. Pretty short, but each needs to be replayed - and some have alternate routes.

 

It's fucking great.

What are the chances of this getting a physical release?

 

Of Mighty Gunvolt Burst? Almost nil. Of the Striker double pack? Quite likely.

Why does gunvolt get a fairy sometimes. Does she do anything?

 

She's from Azure Striker - her story is explained there.


And yes, she does. But spoilers.

Was definitely going to buy this, but then I saw this naff meme-y drivel and now I'm really not so sure.

 

Its just how the final boss speaks. Since the final boss is, essentially, The Internet (sort of), it's in context.

 

As for 100%, gotta S rank everything apparently.

Gunvolt just has a gun. You can change trajectory and homing and stuff, but that's it. Beck has about 8 different types of shot (missiles, bullets etc), and each of those has customisations. Depending what you choose, he can shoot faster, at an angle, etc.

I'm really enjoying this! The graphics are brilliant. I love the neon colours.

 

I've a question though - there's a customisation option for duration that is 1, 1.5, 3 and 5 seconds. I have no idea what it does. Can anyone explain please?

 

Thanks :D

Basically, shot distance.

 

EDIT: I think, if you have duration of 5 seconds, have the initial shot speed fast, air shot speed as slow, and piercing set to enemy, you should have shots that land multiple hits as they pass through a baddie.

Fucking hell this alternates between easy and ridiculous. The gun upgrade system is mental as well.

 

Any tips before I snap the joy con off my Switch? I've done the City, Oil Rig (Pyro dude) and irritating slippy ice platform with insta-death spikes which you can't see because they're off-screen bullshit world (Cryo Keith).
