Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, Gunkid 99 is a fast paced high score chaser, one in which you’ll do anything to rack up the numbers.
In fact, it’s that chasing which is the primary focus of Gunkid 99 as you work your way through the arcade styled action, shooting anything and everything that moves. With weapon drops rolling out at all times, letting you switch up your weapon of choice and upwards of 30 delicately created hand crafted stages providing a bigger challenge, there should be much to love about this Gunkid.
A game that promises endless replayability, tons of special abilities and some super fluid, highly responsive movement, we’ve got our eyes set on chasing those scores as soon as we can. Once we do, there will be a full review coming out from us.
The key features of the game include:
- Tight, fluid combat and movement. Double-jump, wall-kick and dodge-roll out of harm’s way.
- More than 25 unique weapons to choose from.
- More than 30 special abilities. Mix and match them for the ultimate combo.
- More than 30 hand-crafted stages, each with a different layout and enemy combination that requires different strategies to deal with.
