Graze Counter GM Retro Shoot ’em up is Now Available on PC and Consoles


Henteko Doujin has officially released the shoot-em-up game Graze Counter GM on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The game is priced at USD$14,99 on consoles, but it is currently available for a 20% discount on Steam, at US$11.99.

Graze Counter GM is a vertical-scrolling 2D shooting game based on the concept of grazing. The player fills up the gauge by grazing enemy bullets and then uses the gauge to perform a special Graze Counter to destroy enemies in one fell swoop. When an enemy is destroyed by a counterattack, a star will appear. Grabbing will fill another gauge called the Break Gauge, where if filled, the player can attack in the even more powerful Break Mode.
