GunGirl2 is a freeware action platformer in the style of games like Metroid, Castlevania or Cave Story. But with blood… LOTS of blood.
The undead start rising from their graves, humanity is lost and all hope has gone to hell – and that’s exactly the place, where you have to fix everything…
Go on an epic adventure and explore a huge world with the nameless blonde chick GunGirl or her best friend GunDude (aka Marvin). On your quest you have to find more and more weapons, power-ups and special items that will give you access to new areas of the game. Talk with survivors of the apocalypse and discover the hidden secret behind what’s going on. On your journey there are thousands of zombies and other monstrosities that will continuously keep you on your toes!
But when you thought nothing could get worse anymore, you find that glowing red door at the end of that dark pit and find yourself lost in the very depths of hell…

Put Some G-Power In Your Weapons
GG2 offers 6 main weapons, each has a unique feel, ammunition, an alternate fire mode, a variety of unique power-ups and you can even level them up. Every time you kill enemies, they will drop small G letters. Collect them to power up your weapons to make them more and more deadly over time. But be aware! Each time an enemy hits you, you will lose a certain amount of G-Power.
Explore New Worlds
The game starts off in a small building, from which you have to escape. The more you explore, the more will the world open up. Get more and more items and power-ups that will give you the necessary abilities to reach new places. Find abandoned subway-stations to travel to far-away new places or go through portals and travel across the hellish parallel-dimension!
Power-Up Your Character
Another feature is the Power-Up system. Whenever you obtain special Power-Orbs in the game, you can use them in your status screen to upgrade ascpects, weapons or items of your character. You decide if a weapon should have more power, bigger clip size, faster fire rate etc, or if you need more protection, or better health supplies. Spend your Power-Orbs wisely to become more versatile or focus them to become a specialized killing machine.
Advanced Blood & Gore FX
When I go see a zombie movie and there are no bucketloads of blood in it, I would say “Hey mister, cool flick, but where’s the damn blood?”. To avoid such emails from angry players, GunGirl 2 offers a whole ton of high-quality blood effects to please all zombie fans!
Lots of Quests
There are several main- and sub-quests in the game. You can get them from surviving npcs or even from unholy items and they have smaller or bigger impacts on the story. They are NOT grind-quests to cheat a longer playtime! That’s a no-go.
High Replayability Value
If the 4-8 hours of playtime (on normal mode) aren’t enough for your zombiekilling-desire, the game offers a total of 3 difficulty settings (from Normal to Iron Maiden), unlockable playmodes and even a secret character!
