Gal*Gun: Introduction and History-With the advent of HDTVs came the sad demise of light-gun shooters. Or so we thought; companies like Inti Creates keep the spirit (if not the exact execution) of the genre alive with games like Gal*Gun Double Peace!
Gal*Gun: Dating on Rails-Gal*Gun Double Peace is a bold combination of light-gun shooter, visual novel and stat-based dating sim. What madness is this? Let's explore further.
Gal*Gun: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation-Gal*Gun Double Peace isn't just about shooting girls in their squishy bits until they fall over in quasi-orgasmic ecstasy; there's actually a solid narrative underpinning it all, too. Let's take a closer look!

And while Gal*Gun 2 isn’t exactly your typical slice-of-life in many ways, heroine Nanako certainly fulfils this role very pleasingly.

Waifu Wednesday: Risu the Angel-Japanese games have a number of different ways of handling narratives from a first-person perspective.

Tips and Tricks
To get the true ending for a route, you have to attain an S-rank (600,000 MP) and get the affection gauge to 100%. These choices will help make that happen, though in a number of cases several options will work.

The next option determines whether you proceed down Ekoro or Kurona’s route. Choose to help Kurona for Ekoro’s route, ask to be stabbed with the spear for Kurona’s route.
Ekoro true end
I’m a man! I can’t help it!
I wanna get more physical…

Patako true end
Clear all other true ends except True Love to get both halves of the Angel Ring, then follow Kurona’s true end one more time. An extra option will appear before the finale.
Help me, Ekoro!
I need to find a girlfriend, today
Unlock “TFG (That Friggin’ Guy)”
Clear any route with “God-like” rank (1 million MP). This seems easiest to achieve in Kurona’s route as it has two normal stages in the final episode rather than just one.
The game was refused classification in New Zealand on the grounds that it existed “purely for titillation”.
