Double Peace is shooting it’s shot on Nintendo Switch

Finding love, has there ever been a heavier struggle within the limits of the human brain? We can often distract ourselves from hunger, hard work, or the mistakes we’ve made, but when we need to find love, it haunts us.

In the book The Little Paris Workshop, author Nina George wrote:

“We cannot decide to love. We cannot force anyone to love us. There is no secret recipe, there is only self-love. And we are at its mercy, we do not we can do nothing.

In the book hearts and mistakes, author Corey MP wrote:

“We all want love. We all need love. And no matter how much we push it away or pretend to deprive ourselves of it, our hearts will always crave it.

And in the game Gal*Gun: Double peace, the tutorial says:

“Successfully shoot the girls to bring them to a state of euphoria and you’ll earn more Mote-Mote points.”

In the game Gal*Gun: Double Peace you play the role of every anime boy from a harem anime in one boy only. You lead a normal life in high school until a cupid in training accidentally hits you with a fully charged shot from his “arrow gun”.

The resulting explosion hits you with a curse that makes all the girls in your school come lustfully towards you like it’s a Vulcan high school during pon farr. So why wouldn’t the character stay home to avoid being attacked by the entire student body (bodies of)? Well, it turns out the Charged Blow exhausted all her chances of finding love in her life, limiting her to just one day. So he MUST confess his love to his TRUE love by the end of the day, or he’ll suddenly become unattractive to all living things: men, women, and, as the game ominously mentioned, even dogs.

We really wonder why they would have this frame in the first place, because it seems like a bad time.

Either way, you’re on your own as you blast your way through the school with a euphoria gun. Now, before going any further in this game, I need you to understand something. The girls you push away are girls who go to your school. With the exception of the rare moment when a teacher gets involved, it’s stated that the girls you’re repelling are in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades at your school, which realistically means these girls are around 15 to 17 years. I think you need to understand this before moving on to the next section because let me tell you, when my wife was also watching this game, she mentioned it, I realized it, and the gaming experience CHANGED.

You see, the euphoria gun lets you outrun the girls who accuse you. He does this by… *thinks about the phrase that will be attached to his name on the internet forever*…causing the girls to climax quite hard where they drop to their knees exhausted. And that, essentially, is the ENTIRE game.

Gal*Gun: Double Peace is an old-school, off-the-rails shooter that tasks you with finding high school girls’ hot spots and shooting them with a euphoria gun. And before you tell me I’m overreacting, there’s even a part where the character himself points out that it’s incredibly shady.

There are girls who are immune to your abilities, thank goodness. But, unfortunately for them, these are the girls you can choose as your “true love”. If you search for one, they will ALWAYS find themselves in a terribly compromising situation that will require you to rescue them as only you know how. By… touching them a lot.

And for the record, I chose the LEAST worrisome screen ever “she’s stuck in a window”.

But now here’s the thing about reviews. While the game isn’t necessarily my jam because of its content, we also need to look at what the game markets itself to, how it’s supposed to play, and how well it achieves that particular goal.

In this case, it does a really good job. I love rail shooters, and truth be told, this game reminded me of a lot of classic rail shooters like House of the Dead or Time Crisis. The areas were diverse enough that trying to get multiple endings wasn’t that difficult either.

There are even options to use the touchscreen instead of aiming a crosshair around the screen. I captured a few seconds of gameplay just so you can see what it looks like. That’s a LOT to process so be prepared.

And if you ever really get into the game and don’t notice anyone judging you for playing that walk around the room, hold down the minus button to quickly switch the screen to a static shot that makes it look like you’re playing an old school role-playing game.

Gal*Gun: Double Peace (Nintendo Switch) Score: 7.5/10

Although I personally found the content disturbing, from a gameplay standpoint, Gal*Gun: Double Peace delivers what it says it does. It’s a twisted take on the classic rail shooter that can be beaten in about two hours. Multiple endings and unlockables increase replay value. Enemies engage in repetitive action and lack variety, but boss fights are enjoyable. It’s the things that drive them that are just plain weird.
