Succubus with Guns from Sometimes You and Satur Cat is a third-person arena-style shooter on PlayStation 5. The game begins with two girls standing around a monument. After trying to perform an ancient ritual and screwing it up, the girls are turned into monsters, and other monsters also start to storm the land. It’s then that you wake up and rush into action. As the title suggests, you’ll be playing as a succubus who has not only guns but also a melee weapon you can use in case you run out of ammo. And yes, said succubus is wearing a revealing attire, and some of the enemies will also lean into fan service territory.
Upon starting a level, you will notice a number in the upper right corner. This will let you know how many waves you need to complete to beat the level. As each new wave starts, more and more enemies will show up, from the measly slugs that you get to battle during the tutorial segment to small and large zombies, skeletons, and more. Once you’ve managed to reach the final wave for a level, you will end up fighting against a boss, who you must defeat to open the portal to the next stage.
The controls are simple, and you’ll learn about them during a short tutorial. Your character can move with the left analog stick, and the right one can be used to swing the camera around her as needed. To run, press and hold down the left analog stick. The Square button is for jumping, which is an odd choice since you’re probably used to jumping with the X button. You can interact with the X button. Once you grab your gun, you’ll be able to aim with the L2 button and shoot with the R2 button. The Circle button can be used to roll, which is useful for dodging attacks.
If you’re here for the trophies, then you’ll be happy to know that Succubus with Guns has a full trophy list with a Platinum. The list includes 5 Bronze trophies, 4 Silver trophies, and 9 gold trophies for you to work on unlocking. The objectives to complete will include defeating the slugs in the tutorial, defeating 30 skeletons, defeating 50 big zombies, dying in 30 seconds on the first level, dying three times in the same level, completing a level using only a sword or melee attacks, finding said sword, jumping five times while the camera is on the front of your character, completing the tutorial, all six levels, and beating the game.

Succubus with Guns is one to avoid on PlayStation 5. It’s a wave-based third-person shooter, but its gameplay is repetitive, the game does not run as it should on Sony’s now current-gen console, its enemies lack any proper AI and usually run away from you for no reason, and bugs that leave your character stuck on walls or unable to jump to a higher platform for no reason. Succubus with Guns is out on PlayStation 5 with a $9.99 asking price. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version available as a separate purchase for the same price.
