Heavy Bullets, Is my first FPS Roguelike and i am loving it so far, i am very impressed by this game but i shouldn't be so impressed because it is after all ( Devolver Digital ) Which is one of my favorite indie publishers, and i think i have all their games.
There are many aspects that this game has pretty much succeeded in.
- Graphics, Designs, Animations, Levels, Idea, Style. sounds
Not sure if this should be called Retro but it is something like that.
Although it is a roguelike, you can use the bank to store your money or weapons or whatever for the next gameplay so it has some progression into it, you can keep storing it as you like.
A Shez load of items, Some can be used and some are passive effects.
The best thing i like is the Gun and reload technique it is quite entertaining, bullets fall on the ground you can pick them up and reload, so you cant just randomly shoot and then stay with 0 bullets while being chased by enemies , no you have to make sure that every bullet counts.
- Buying usable items as powerups or explosive stuff, and health potions and everything makes it a great Rogue-Like indeed i can see myself spending 40+ hours on this game, and it certainly would take a lot of time to finish it .
The game is very challenging, At the beginning its quite hard to understand but gets better the more you play you begin to understand what each item does and how they work, and the game relies on speed and quick reflexes so it keeps things interesting, and thats one of the things i really love about this game, the movement the actions the shooting its all fast the game is fast it does not feel boring or sluggish at all, its incredibly fast and relies on accuracy in shooting.
Shops, Some that sells Heals and antidotes, other sells bullets and items and bombs.
Theres even life insurance in the bank and a Will ( So your items remain with you even if you died).
I love those sound effects and music they are bloody perfect and the sound of every Gunshot is like music to my ear i just keep spamming it all the time ( got me killed a couple of times )
Freaky fast enemies that gets so happy when they see you and run after you, and some hidden and hard to see and turrets and more and more and more!
A very addictive challenging Fps Roguelike that is well-done and has some progression in it not just perma-death and 100% worth trying.
- Nice graphics and designs and levels
- Unique shooting style.
- Shops to buy items from and a bank to deposit money or withdraw and more.
- Nice set of enemies and things to kill.
- Great sound effects and music.
- Very high replay value, Achievements, Trading Cards and secrets.
- Not popular as it deserves to be.
- Steam did not promote it so i actually only heard about it after it existed early access states...
Yes i did not find anything that i disliked about this game.
no i have no connections to the dev or anything i am being 100% honest i really liked this game and i am still playing it now and will keep on for a long time ( Its my Rogue legacy Gun version )
You should diffidently try this game out, i can honestly say in my opinion it is worth every cent ( although i got it for free so i have no place in forcing that statement )
never knew FPS Roguelikes can be this fun from now on i will try to expand to more games i thought i'd play.
Thanks to my friend Timmy for giving me this game ( all those who bought it at early access received an extra gift when it was released officially and he was kind enough to give me his). <3
