Gunvein is a dynamic, aggression-based bullet hell shoot em up where you use lock on lasers, charged weapons, bombs & hypers to overwhelm the enemies before they overwhelm you.
Gunvein is an intense, dynamic bullet hell STG inspired by the arcade masterpieces of the 90' and 00'.
Screen domination is vital - use your lock ons & charged energy blasts to overwhelm enemies before they overwhelm you.
Aggressive play is rewarded with resources that can be used to temporarily power up your shot, or to unleash a devastating screen clearing Bomb. Use this to create destructive feedback loops!

•Convenient Practice Tools
Gunvein has 3 main characters, each one with their own unique playstyle.
[Type A | Bagon]
Riko uses the overwhelming speed and power of the Bagon ship to dance around shots and rhythmically destroy enemies. Has a cone lock-on which allows you to fire homing lasers, and a very powerful black hole bomb.
[Type B | Damul]
Damul's strength lies in its vast coverage, safety & efficiency. Enemies can be hit from anywhere on the screen, giving Miko full control over how much danger she is in. Has a full screen lock-on & a huge laser beam.
[Type C | Gunex]
Piloting a highly experimental ship Gunex, the young prodigy relies on planning ahead & prediction to set up bomb blasts that catch enemies by surprise. Uses charged bombs & a powered up version of Bagon's homing lasers.
