Hello, everyone! We’re Enrique Galvez and Adam Milecki from Rockin’ Android. We are a passionate U.S.-based publisher of innovative and independently produced games from Japan. We grew up playing some unforgettable 2D games and it’s our goal to bring Japan’s next generation of retro-style 2D games to your PlayStation 3.
For this post, we’d like to tell you about our outstanding bullet-hell shoot-em-up trilogy, Gundemonium. If you’ve ever played Super Stardust HD, or game series like Gradius and R-Type, you have a good idea of what to expect from the “shoot-em-up” genre. This is retro arcade-style shooting and dodging action, no quarters required, no quarter given. “Bullet-hell” means just what it sounds like, too many bullets on-screen at once to count. Hopefully you’re not susceptible to shell shock.
In the Japanese indie-gaming scene, very few developers are as respected as Platine Dispositif. Their games provide plenty of solid white-knuckle-intense gameplay, and ageless retro-gaming style. If “steampunk,” alchemy, and dodging unhealthy doses of flying lead (while dishing plenty back out) sounds good to you, Gundemonium Collection has got you covered. Bullet-hell shoot-em-up fans, don’t blink. It’s time to take notice. Alchemical mayhem isn’t all these games have going for them, not by a long shot. The beauty and ferocity of the Gundemonium games is not-to-be-missed in both its mythology and aesthetic. Bullet-hell shoot-em-ups with a deep storyline?! It’s true, and with Rockin’ Android’s meticulous translation, you’ll be sucked in immediately. With the dazzling audiovisual prowess and innovative gameplay those in-the-know have come to expect from Platine Dispositif, you won’t want to leave.
Gundemonium ReCollection is the first game in the Gundemonium trilogy. Its galvanized and finely tuned side-scrolling bullet-hell shoot-em-up gameplay sets it well above most other games in the genre. There are multiple playable characters, expertly crafted enemies and bullet patterns, a risk-and-reward bullet “Friction” system, a “Demonic Shift” ability that’s not for the faint of heart, and much more.
GundeadliGne is the second game in the Gundemonium trilogy. It’s a second extra-strength dosage of the kind of pandemonium found in Gundemonium ReCollection, but with a dramatically game-altering “Flip Turn” ability. It’s surprising how freeing it is. If you’re tired of getting flanked in other shoot-em-ups, now you can turn the tables and get your revenge. GundeadliGne also supports two-player cooperative play, so a friend can join the action and cover your six.
Hitogata Happa is the third game in the Gundemonium trilogy. It combines the bullet-hell shoot-em-up chaos found in the first two games with side-scrolling vertical action. You’ll be taking control of an array of deadly self-destructive flying marionettes each with its own game-changing abilities. You’ll have to decide which to use, when they’ll fight on, and when it’s time for them to make the ultimate crash-and-burn sacrifice.
Rockin’ Android and Sony Online Entertainment are proud to bring the crown jewel of Platine Dispositif to you, the Gundemonium trilogy. Gundemonium Collection ($14.99 USD) includes all three Gundemonium games, Gundemonium ReCollection, GundeadliGne, and Hitogata Happa. The three games will also be available separately ($5.99 USD each).
We’re excited to bring the Gundemonium Collection to you. There hasn’t been anything quite like these games in the US, and that’s about to change.
