One of the best mecha shoot em ups out

Mark, Shoot, Dodge and attack.
The game is played on three dimensions, horizontal, vertical and cross-axis i.e. 3d. Players can choose 3 types of mecha’s,Astebreed, Xbreed and Leading Sire,each controlled by a different character. The gameplay focuses on three action modes: shooter mode where the mecha shoots lasers; lock on mode, where the mecha locks on to the enemies and fires rockets/missiles, and blade mode, where the mecha uses its blade as a melee weapon to destroy enemies.
The behind the player camera looks cool and adds new gameplay elements.
The gameplay is extremely fast paced with fluid animations and smooth transitions from one dimension gameplay to the other. The game also features a fairly decent storyline with voice acting by quality actors and actresses.
23. eXceed 3rd - Jade Penetrate Black Package
The anime styled characters are too cute.
eXceed 3rd - Jade Penetrate Black Package is a game created by Japanese developer Tennen Sozai. eXceed 3rd reboots the storyline of the eXceed series. You are the last descendant of an ancient clan and must survive and win a tournament by defeating other combatant’s ships.
How can one possibly dodge all the bullets?
The game features anime like cutscenes which drives the story and a balanced difficulty level so that everyone can enjoy it. eXceed also features gameplay mechanics like bullet grazing, which acts as ascore multiplier i.e. your score multiplies by an integer with each and every near miss of the bullet, and bullet cancelling, whereby bullets of same polarity as your ship won’t hit you. Suppose the polarity of the enemy bullet is red and your ship’s polarity is also red then the bullet won’t hit you. The gameplay is bundled with a good soundtrack to keep the adrenaline pumping.
Sometimes I get hypnotized looking at the bullet patterns.
22. Gundemonium Recollection
Flying witches with loads of guns.

A lady with swords, guns and missiles is hard to handle.
In Gundemonium Recollection players can choose from 3 different playable characters out of which 2 are available from the start and one can be unlocked during gameplay. Three modes are made available to the player: story, practice and mission. Story mode allows player to play the ingame story with the selected character, in the mission mode the player is able to choose the level and the player and in practice mode the player will continue to respawn until the level is finished.
Too many bullets!
The story is decent, but that’s not a main factor in bullet hell games. The bosses are quite difficult and challenging and the gameplay is fast paced with customizable options like character costumes, guns and different charactersto suit the player’s playstyle.
