Gal*Gun is a Japanese rail shooter Bishōjo game developed by Inti Creates and Alchemist and released on January 27, 2011.

Gal*Gun Plot

Tenzou, the protagonist is a student who is accidentally shot by an apprentice angel Patako, with several Cupid Arrows. The blessing from the arrows makes Tenzou irresistible to the opposite sex, transforming him into the most popular boy in school for one day.

The catch is if Tenzou is unable to find his true love before the effects of the Cupid Arrow wear off, he’ll be destined for a life of loneliness.

Gal*Gun Gameplay

Gal Gun is a rail shooter, with the player walking through the school - As girl after girl runs towards the player trying to profess their love via hand-written notes or screams. Armed with "pheromone shots", the player keeps the girls at bay by shooting them - making them drop to the floor in dizzy ecstasy - while trying to cultivate a romance with one of the four main female leads.

The shooting is broken up by "action events" similar to that of a boss battle, as well as a doki doki mode ("heart pounding" in English) where the player has the option to zoom in and stare at one particular girl he fancied.

The developer also added a panic button that switches the action for a retro-looking game, with authentic animations and sounds. This is referred to as a Mama kita gamen or "Mom arrived screen,".

Bordersdown (previously NTSC-uk) praised the fan service, graphics and boss fights, but criticised the lack of challenge, repetition and region lock.
