Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is the third main installment of the action platform game series, launched in 2014. The production, maintained in a style reminiscent of the cult Mega Man series, was developed by Inti Creates studio. The project was overseen by the distinguished Keiji Inafune, who served as executive producer on the project.

The plot

Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 once again takes us on a journey to a sci-fi world in which so-called Adepts - people endowed with a superpower called Septima - are born. After defeating the Eden organization, the main character of the series - Gunvolt - came into possession of even more powerful abilities, causing him to be targeted by the Shadow Yakumo organization. The task of stopping his "awakening" fell to the battle priestess Kirin.

Thus begins the shared adventure of the two heroes. The story here is conveyed mainly through dialogues so as not to interrupt the players' dynamic gameplay.

Mechanics

In Azure Striker Gunvolt 3, the action is viewed from the side. During the gameplay we control both Gunvolt and Kirin, between whom we can freely switch.

Over the course of successive missions, the protagonists dash to the right, jump over platforms and avoid numerous traps and terrain obstacles, and above all - fight hordes of enemies. While Gunvolt hurls lightning bolts at enemies, Kirin eliminates enemies by making use of his katana. In addition, the heroes have special abilities, the skillful use of which can change the fate of many a skirmish. In addition, Gunvolt can use so-called Image Pulses, which allow him to summon to the battlefield allies and enemies encountered during his previous adventures.

Technical issues

The graphic design of Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 is kept in a colorful pixel art style. The game is played to the accompaniment of a dynamic soundtrack. After earning a certain number of so-called Kudos?s, i.e. points awarded for the style of gameplay, the performance of a virtual pop idol - Lumen - is activated, whose songs replace the standard music playing in each level.
