Gunbrella Preview (Steam)

For this Gunbrella Preview, where we uncover the dark secrets of a gritty, tangled metropolis and battle diabolic villains with your trusty Gunbrella, a bulletproof brolly that doubles as a firearm. Our hard-nosed investigation soon becomes entangled with the inner workings of a creepy cabal of ghouls and gangsters, cops and cultists, and the fallout of corporate exploitation.

  • Satisfying when you nail reflections.
  • Cartoon-style blood splatters and bodies blow up and parts bounce around.

Gunbrella Preview Cons:

  • The pop-up of coins especially takes up a lot of the screen obscuring your view.
  • Takes some getting used to how you traverse the world with the Gunbrella mixed with jumps and wall jumps.
  • Clicking a sign by accident has you having to click through it again with no skip button.
  • Aiming for precise shots can be a pain as you have no aiming reticule.
  • It’s not always clear who is friend or foe or what can be broken.
  • Not always great at guiding you to missions.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
