Stylish Dual Gun TAP! ACTION!
GunStrider: Tap Strike!


"Its time to end it all!"

The near future, in another world.

Under a military dictatorship, everything has been censored and oppressed for over a decade. All of humanitys greatest achievements, including literature, music and art, as well as fundamental human emotions, relations and ideologies are crushed and strangled. But one day, a small incident occurs that will change everything.

Little did we know
that such a small incident would rupture into a catastrophe

The saga of those who rose up for justice in a wicked world spiraling into oblivion starts NOW!


[Intuitive Gameplay!]
Tap and kill the enemies on screen before they attack you! The more enemies you can take down consecutively without making shooting failures, the more consecutive kill combos you can stack for bonus points. Shooting an innocent citizen results in penalties, so beware!

[Stylish Dual Gun Action!]
Recreate quick, stylish dual gun actions you enjoyed in movies with simple tap controls! The game supports dual tap controls, so you can simultaneously fire from both hands, and you can also swipe the screen left or right to attack all enemies on each side with skill attacks!

[The Epitome of Style, Bullet Time!]
Tap and hold on your character to activate Bullet Time! When Bullet Time is on, time slows down for you to take down enemies with ease, and you can also gain bonus points. After Bullet Time ends, a flashy camera shot and replay is shown to accentuate stylish gunfire scenes to the limit!

[Compete with Players from All Around the Globe!]
You can compete with players worldwide via the Ranking Mode! Additionally, login with Facebook to activate the rankings of your friends and engage in friendly competition! Test your mettle now!

[Immersive Character Growth System and Tons of Weapons!]
Upgrade character powers and weapons with the gold you gained from gameplay. You can upgrade numerous stats such as Power, Life, Bullet Time Count, Miss Shot Cover and much more!

In actually digging this game. It's a pure reaction game. But it's got style and great IAP options that are fair.

I might buy the permanently doubler coin and the guns.

I'm trying to make it past level 8 to unlock the ranking mode to see what it's about before I give a full review and score. I'm hoping it's a survival type of mode. I'd be really happy with that. The stages are great and the progression is actually really good.

There's lots of upgrading to do and surprising depth to the game and actual gameplay. There's different weapons you can buy with earning in game cash and there is only one currency in the game.

Also there is NO energy system and NO static/forced ads. There are only opt in ads you can view only if you want to and it's not pushed in your face at all. The devs really are more than reasonable. Which is why I will most likely spend money in this game.

Oh yea.

Level 4 things start getting interesting. I do like this game. I purchased the 2 R41's and the permanent cash doubler. Level 4 convinced me there is only more fun to come because I haven't even used bullet time yet. You get to use another feature in level 4 first. As I said the progression is pretty good.

Money spent. I hope the devs stop by.

I can't believe no one else likes this. I made it to bullet time. The first time was a little clunky but it's damn cool.

The IAP gun are butt kicking. I used the cash to upgrade my character first and not my weapons. I think that was a better choice.

Alright, you forced me to check it out.
It's definitely got style. Made it to level 8 to unlock ranked mode. Haven't made an upgrade yet as not sure what will be best....
Would consider the coin doubler but not sure it has enough depth to keep it fresh for long. Will play a bit more and see what else they can add to keep it fresh.
Definitely worth checking out and a great twitch game, just not sure will have the longevity for me..

This is pretty fun, but I agree with the poster above that it has to be seen how much longevity this title has. Also IAPs are pretty expensive for a mobile game. Still enyoing it.

How do you gain money? I've played 3 games now and I've earned nothing (admittedly I'm rubbish at it and haven't got past the first level yet)

Ok so you need to beat a level to get any cash - fair enough!
I'm struggling to work out how the combo system benefits you though - I had one level where I got a perfect basically - missed no shots - and my final cash tally didn't differ too much from a level where I'd done rubbish on the combo front. I'm also not really sure how the miss shot cover works....

Leaving that aside the basic gameplay is fun, not sure about the longevity but it's an enjoyable blast for a while.

I stopped playing due to the fact the grind is ridiculous. Beat the first 8 levels easily but keep dying on 9 unless I upgrade stats.
Problem is I keep dying on 9 and therefore you don't make any coins if you don't complete the level. Only so many times I can replay level 8 for such low returns....
Stylish game yes but heavy grindfest
