Graze Counter GM playing style

A top-down scrolling 2D shooter game where you charge your meter by getting dangerously close to enemy fire, then unleash it as a powerful enemy that obliterates Graze Counter!
Each ship has a “Counter Gauge” that charges when in close proximity to enemy bullets. They then use this charge to unleash powerful attacks. Destroying enemies with these special attacks will earn you Stars, which are collected and used to build the Break Gauge. Once the Break Gauge reaches MAX, you can still temporarily activate “Break Mode” for an intense boost of firepower!

Test the limits of your destructive power with these deadly counterattack techniques!
