Gunlocked Direct Download
A twin stick shooter without the twin stick, Gunlocked is all about careful positioning and upgrade selection. Manage unique targeting systems across multiple weapons and upgrades, as you battle legions of alien ships, and hope you’re strong enough to defeat the mothership! Then do it all over again with a new strategy. You only control movement, but every weapon has its own unique targeting system that you can influence. Have followed this one all through development & had hours of fun. The best sci-fi themed roguelike shmup that I have found. It can be somewhat difficult to get the hang of as your weapons generally force you to be thinking about your positioning & it has a lot more to it than just firing forward & dodging enemies. Very fun game with a super interesting ‘feel’ to it that can ultimately become really satisfying. Easily worth the asking price. Pick it up for sure. I bought this game early in it’s lifeline, and at first it didn’t click with me. I was expecting something like Nova Drift + Vampire Survivors…but I got in game and my ship shot using some weird lock on weapon instead of something traditional.
That’s kind of this game’s gimmick, you don’t get normal shoot em up weapons. You get gimmicky but interesting and powerful ones. I played an hour or so, said cool — and didn’t open it for several months. Then I got my steamdeck and I returned to this game. it’s very addicting, with each run taking 15 minutes instead of 30 like vampire survivors. Once this game clicks, it CLICKS. If you’re a fan of either shoot em ups or vampire survivors clones, this game is for you. vertical scrolling does some interesting stuff, and this game has some wacky weapons and silly mechanics to play around with. i really look forward to seeing it develop more in early access, but had a great time with the stuff that exists today. A genuine game hidden beneath a sea of casual shovel ware or games-as-service models.
Gunlocked is a very solid shoot em’ up with meta-progression mechanics. It doesn’t play like Vampire Survivor, but it has that appeal if it were a vertical scrolling shoot em’ up. The graphics herald back to a 16-bit era while the music and sound effects are a homage to the 8-bit NES. The gameplay is genuinely challenging, fairly cerebral, and the random placement of enemies keeps you on your toes every run. While Gunblocked keeps its project scope within reasonable boundaries, you’re sure to get enough hours of entertainment out of it for its price. Amazing unique take on the “auto-fire bullet-hell” formula ala Vampire Survivors. Combining SHMUPS with VS was absolutely genius, and executed flawlessly. The way “FromLefcourt” has created GUNLOCKED from scratch while constantly adding content, updating, balancing, adding more content, interacting with the community over the months… Truly amazing and dedicated to the craft. I wish all developers were as dedicated.
