Haven Review: Xmas Shooting – Scramble!!

Fruitbat Factory is at it again bringing us another delight from Orange juice! No, not the beverage that got our YouTube channel suspended for three months. The game design group! This time its Xmas Shooting Scramble!

Like its previous Bullet Hell titles its come out with like QP – Shooting is dangerous we are back for another round of insanity and mischief lead by the chibi’s from that as far as I know represent their development team at Orange Juice.

This game though has a plot, which at the very moment you start arcade mode you are chasing down someone who has stolen the presents from Bunny Girl Santa! That devious little bastard, Who dares steal from Santa! Well besides villains like Team Rocket and other characters throughout the history of games and television.

But back on track on track now, the game controls just like its predecessors and its pretty easy and straight forward to the point where anyone can pick it up and start playing it and have little to no issue understanding the controls, the configuration, and everything else.

It really feels like they just re-skinned QP-Shooting is dangerous in terms of mechanics and just made a new story. Which is forgivable in this case because its a bullet hell game and if you are like myself you just kind of expect bullet hell titles to just be pumped out over and over again. There isn’t anything wrong with it unless they “literally” just re-skinned QP – Shooting is dangerous and trust me they didn’t and they did manage to fix a few bugs as well.

Like their previous titles the music is very delightful and spot on, as is the actual gameplay where you can challenge your friends and family and prove to them all you are the dominate gamer of the household and that your bullet hell skills should be recognized.

But what it ultimately boils down to is do you like Bullet Hells, do you like anime ladies dressed as Santa, because you know thats a fetish and people are into that. Do you also like cheesy dialog to explain why you are firing energy waves and protecting yourself with little reindeer than look no forward! When Christmas rolls around we have found the ideal game title for you that is not only nicely made, runs smooth as silk, but also has lovely animation in terms of game design in it.

If you liked QP – Shooting is dangerous than you will definitely love this title.

Haven Review: QP Shooting – Dangerous!!

QP Shooting_UpdatedLogoFirst up is our disclaimer.  We got this game because we wanted to review it, and as such
all views in this article our are own. No money has been exchanged for this review.

From the Orange Juice crew comes another bullet hell shoot-em up: QP Shooting – Dangerous!! In this game you play as the Orange Juice staff itself, in another one of their amazing games, going around shooting things up.

Hence the “bullet hell” in it its tags. A bit about the game besides playing as the Orange Juice staff and shooting things, you progress through various stages while dodging opponents’ bullets and shooting plenty of your own. Even on the easiest setting the game tests your limits because there is no actual “easy” in easy mode.qp_sp

The game is extremely difficult to play and even more so to master. It’s a genre that has been around for quite a while, most notably in Japanese arcades alongside Guilty Gear X2 and Street Fighter.

QP Shooting – Dangerous!! takes on an anime twist in this release. As a bonus, you can unlock an extra character in the title’s predecessor, 100% Orange Juice, if you own both games. Despite being extremely challenging, the game is quite family-friendly and has a cute sense of moe to go along with it.

Ultimately, it’s a really amazing game with a classic genre feel modernized and released on the PC, all thanks to distributor Fruitbat Factory. Do I recommend QP Shooting – Dangerous!!? But of course.
It’s fun for everyone…and rage-inducing, as well. Just don’t take it out on your controller.
