The Gunvolt/Beck game series is an action side scroller game in the form like Megaman games. Battle through stages, reach the Boss and defeat them all.
Instead of a new sequel game, Inti Creates decided to rather do something different. They created a brand new full-sized game that features characters from multiple universes with Gunvolt (Azure Striker Gunvolt) and Beck (Mighty No. 9) taking the stage.
This new game is much deeper and a more expansive world that differs greatly from the original/s in many ways. New systems have been introduced like character customization, it puts you in control and lets you completely customize the main weapon of your character. There is also a new Burst Combo that gives you a multiplier when killing enemies up close and personal.
The “old” pixelated graphics has been redone to give a new/old classic look and to bring that epic golden age of side scrollers back to action. It also looks like the game will get a few DLCs as the first one Is already available and free for a limited time. Until 9 August you can get Ekoro for Free. The cool thing about her is that she can fly, which can you give you an awesome advantage in certain stages. So far they say that with every new character they release as DLC, they will offer it for free for the first two weeks upon release.
Mighty Gunvolt Burst is a fun side scroller that brings back some great memories with some new little flavour added.
