Gal*Gun Double Peace

A fusion of classic light-gun shooters and dating sim, Gal*Gun Double Peace is a game that looks like candy-coloured fluff but features a surprising amount of hidden depth.


Developer: Inti Creates
Publisher: PQube
Available on: Windows PC, PS4, Vita


Cover Game Articles

Gal*Gun: Introduction and History - With the advent of HDTVs and their different method of producing an image compared to old-school CRTs, one genre of game has largely fallen by the wayside: the light-gun shooter. With that said, however, there are a number of developers out there keeping the soul — if not the exact execution — of this classic arcade genre … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Introduction and History
Gal*Gun: Dating on Rails - Although Gal*Gun Double Peace has the trappings of an arcade-style light-gun shooter, there’s a lot more going on in the game than simply pointing and shooting. We no longer live in an age where a release like Namco’s original PlayStation port of Time Crisis is acceptable to modern consumers, at least at full retail price; players need … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Dating on Rails
Gal*Gun: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - Gal*Gun Double Peace is about much more than just shooting pretty girls until they fall over in quasi-orgasmic states: it’s actually got a pretty decent narrative, too. Technically, it’s got several narrative threads, and in true dating sim/visual novel tradition, it’s only by playing them all that you’ll get a full understanding of everything that … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation
Gal*Gun: Sights and Sounds - Gal*Gun Double Peace is memorable for a whole lot of different reasons: its contribution to the revival of rail shooters, its silly but touching plot and its striking audio-visual aesthetic. Unlike many other anime-inspired games, the art and music of Gal*Gun are not the work of particularly well-known or established names — but there’s some decent pedigree … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Sights and Sounds

Gal*Gun 2: A Fond Farewell - It’s almost time to say goodbye to Sakurazaki Academy — at least until our next visit — but I couldn’t leave without showing at least a bit of appreciation for some more of the extended cast. As you’ll hopefully recall, Gal*Gun 2 includes a feature known as “Rendezvous”, where once you’ve acquired the phone numbers of any … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: A Fond Farewell
Gal*Gun 2: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - Much like its predecessor, Gal*Gun 2 has a surprising amount going on its story — much more so than its seemingly fanservice-laden premise might lead you to believe. While the previous game Gal*Gun Double Peace explored the idea of fallibility, and the fact that no two people cope with the knowledge that they are not and can … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation
Waifu Wednesday: Nanako Tamasaki - A good mainstay of any slice-of-life love story is the “childhood friend” character. And while Gal*Gun 2 isn’t exactly your typical slice-of-life in many ways, heroine Nanako certainly fulfils this role very pleasingly. Introduced right from the outset as the girl who sits next to you in class, and someone with whom you have a … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Nanako Tamasaki
Gal*Gun 2: Asking the Important Questions - In any creative work involving a cast of more than one female character — particularly if said work is of Japanese origin — there is one question that is, to some people, seemingly of greater importance than any other. I am, of course, talking about Who Is Best Girl, an eternally raging debate that no-one … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: Asking the Important Questions
Waifu Wednesday: Risu the Angel - Japanese games have a number of different ways of handling narratives from a first-person perspective. The typical “visual novel” approach allows the player to ride along inside the protagonist’s head, being privy to their innermost thoughts as well as the things they say out loud. But in other instances where this approach has not been … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Risu the Angel
Gal*Gun 2: A Strange and Sexy Little World - A game where you blast cute girls to quasi-orgasmic ecstasy while attempting to fend off the mischief of a cheeky young demon might not sound like the sort of experience that would have good worldbuilding, but the Gal*Gun series as a whole is full of surprises. It’s clear that developer Inti Creates has taken a … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: A Strange and Sexy Little World
Gal*Gun 2: Introduction - Gal*Gun Double Peace was one of the most pleasant surprises I’ve had in my gaming career. Going into it, I already knew I was going to enjoy the inherently silly concept of “shooting” cute girls with pheromones until they collapsed in a quasi-orgasmic state, but what I wasn’t quite prepared for was the fact that … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: Introduction
Waifu Wednesday: Kurona - We’re about to kick off a month of Gal*Gun 2 funtimes… so what better time to celebrate one HELL of a girl? Kurona is the antagonist in both Gal*Gun Double Peace and Gal*Gun 2, and a favourite waifu of Matt Papa from developer Inti Creates. It’s not hard to figure out why people find her so appealing… but … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Kurona
The MoeGamer Podcast: Pilot Episode – Sega, Sega, Sega - I’ve been talking about doing some sort of podcast with my good friend and longtime supporter Chris Caskie for some time… and last weekend we finally got around to it! After the jump (and on YouTube), you’ll find the pilot episode of a new MoeGamer podcast that will hopefully become a semi-regular thing! How regular … Continue reading The MoeGamer Podcast: Pilot Episode – Sega, Sega, Sega
The One-Liner Challenge - Time for a Community tag post! This one looked like a particularly fun one, and after the lovely Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime specifically requested me to do one about games, who was I to refuse? The original tag came from The Awkward Book Blogger and was based around, as you might expect, … Continue reading The One-Liner Challenge

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.

Shinobu true end

Teach her body directly
Try to be more captivating
*strokes*
I’d swipe the panties if they were yours
I love you
You’re beautiful like a Goddess
Go right in!
I’ll not pass off Shinobu to you!
I was worried about you
Show me your smile
I can’t do that!
Maya-chan isn’t weak!

Maya true end

I was just looking at you
I’m good at using the ol’noodle
Your cute face is a mess…
*hug her tightly*
Show me where you’re injured
Talk about what goes with rice
*stroke her*
I’ll do whatever I can!
*keep quiet*
Here, let’s rehydrate!
Thanks for telling me
Maya-chan is the stupid one!

Sisters true end

You two look great in your uniforms
The seal has been broken
You don’t have to do it if it’s bad
You got some nice air on that jump
You must be good at sports
How does this work?
That swimsuit looks good on you
You must be really motivated now
I’ll back you guys up!
Let them go!
Did you see how brave I was?
I want the three of us to be happy

Angel and Devil route

You activated my trap card!
Shout real loud! Scream “dumbass!”
Gotta stop them, even by force
You’re not a doll

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…
*shout in the 2nd controller’s mic*
Should I get you some medicine?
Will she really return to normal?

Kurona true end

We gotta go help!
It’s a battle of wits!
Let’s carry them to the infirmary!
Well done, Kurona-chan!
What’s wrong with a make-up lesson?

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.


Localisation Notes

The game was refused classification in New Zealand on the grounds that it existed “purely for titillation”.
