Gun Trails

Yoyogi Games' Playdate exclusive shoot 'em up Gun Trails is about to get an amazing new update that aims to address some of the issues we identified in our recent review including the long initial loading time upon booting up the game and its high difficulty.

Update V.2, which is scheduled to release on March 5th, will take advantage of a new custom loader to make the game's loading time significantly faster and will also be introducing a new novice mode for those wanting a more casual gameplay experience.

There will also be a few new settings, including the ability to change the ship speed and cut out some of the high-pitch sound effects, as well as a few quality-of-life fixes like more precise image rotation on bullets.

We can't wait to check it out when it is live and will be updating our review with our thoughts. Just in case you're interested, you can also read our chat with Gun Trails' lead developer Josh Filstrup about the making of the game at this link.
