About the Game


Heavy Bullets is currently in beta with just a few but important tweaks and bits of polish left before it reaches its final release state. Join the discussion about gameplay, visuals, music, and sound design updates with Terri Vellmann and Doseone via Twitter and the official Steam forums for Heavy Bullets.


Armed with a simple yet stylish revolver and six devastatingly plump bullets, you must reset the security mainframe to restore order and reap the rewards of a job well done. To succeed in the game, players will need to move carefully and make smart use of their bullets, items, and the environment as rushing into new areas is the fastest way to get killed in the untamed wild of the neon corridors.



Limited Ammunition - Begin each attempt to reach the mainframe with just six bullets for your revolver that must be picked back up after each shot and manually reloaded one by one - make them count.



A Plethora of Items - Discover items and perks to aid you on your way to the mainframe. From homing bombs and coin magnets to a teleporter and high heels, each item will change up your approach. Choose wisely as you can only carry one item unless, of course, you find a backpack.



Shopping and Banking - While death is permanent, money in the bank can live on for future attempts at reaching the mainframe. Make a deposit or withdrawal from one of many conveniently placed automatic banking machine throughout the facility. Or just blow your cash on a shopping spree - up to you.



Life Decisions - Invest in items like Life Insurance or a Last Will that, if carried during the time of your unexpected death, will save your money, bullets, bombs, and keycards for your next attempt.



Aggressive Creatures + Malfunctioning Security - Face down dozens of nasty creatures lurking around the colorful hallways and the now malfunctioning security drones meant to defend against those same creatures.

Early Access Review
The moment I start Heavy Bullets I'm assaulted with a minimal bright neon colored title-screen and a trippy melody with hazy vocals blaring over the glitched sounds of the menu like I've stumbled upon some kind of Philip K. Dickian Hotline Miami. I instantly think to myself "Yep this feels like something Devolver Digital would publish." This is of course a very good feeling.

This exceeds any rogue-like FPS before it in every way, and ups the ante by having very well-thought out and carefully planned gameplay. The action and combat are more than solid, intense and the atmosphere is engaging; with enemies that can pop out of bushes killing you in a heartbeat, the panic of realizing you haven't loaded all those bullets you picked up, all powered by a pulsing electronic soundtrack that creeps up on you as you come closer to dangerous areas.

The roguelike elements here work *very* well. You are placed into the thralls of a glitched neon world with harsh and bright hallways randomly generated everytime, the goal is to reach the end of each floor and eventually make it to the 8th floor where you're tasked with resetting a malfunctioning mainframe. Sounds simple, but equipped with only your 6-shot revolver this will prove to be a true test in frustration as there are monsters, turrets, and worms hiding around every corner to whittle away at your already very limited life. The floors are randomly littered with items to help with this, and you'll find banks where if you're playing smart enough you can buy life insurance or deposit money that carry over into your next playthroughs, making things slightly easier each time.

Seriously if you like roguelikes at all buy this game. If you like first person shooters at all, buy this game. If you like crazy artsy games with insanely stylish visuals and trippy sound design, buy this game!

If Wolfenstein 3-D went to college and did fifty tabs of LSD on a dare in his dorm room, you would get Heavy Bullets.

Heavy Bullets is a low-poly, high-style FPS roguelike set in indoor jungle of sharp-edged rainbows infested with sharp-toothed nightmare creatures. Levels, enemies, items, and even the UI drip with color and unique personality. The glitched-tech sound design and sparse, synth-heavy music compliment the sometimes jolting and often gorgeous environments exceptionally. You've seen first-person roguelikes before, but you've never seen anything like this.

This is god damn amazing. Beautiful visual direction and sound design.

The whole mechanic of fetching bullets makes the game a little unforgiving on those lacking good aim, but the large hitboxes of enemies counters that. Though it is easy to get into panic situations which can quickly leave you without ammo and defenseless. Overall the mechanic is pretty unique and certainly makes you improves your aim fast.

I haven't progressed very far in the couple hours I've played, but each playthrough has been unique and the level generation has been pretty good. The ability to store money and items between playthroughs is very nice idea, allowing you to save some things if death is almost certain.

All-in-all, it's a really fun and challenging procedural FPS.
