About This Game


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.

This is one of the most fun thrilling games that you can just pick up and have a good time with. Heavy Bullets is a first person rouge like shooter that is certainly worth the time and money to play. I got it during the devolver sale and I love it! If you want to see my reaction first hand check out my Shall We Play (let's play)( https://youtu.be/7hKCcNtptOk ) on my youtube channel: IomiereGaming ... You'll get a good idea of what the game is like and also hopefully be entertainedin the process. But really such a good game especially if you just want something you can pick up and enjoy whenever. I love the sort of classic feel to it even though its a very modern game as well. It just feels good to play.

P.S. I reccomend using the knife if you can find one!

The game doesn't even update anymore so any bugs taht you currently have, such as broken mouse controls, or crashing. Forget about that getting fixed.

I would advised that you not buy this game until they fix these issues.

Heavy Bullets is a really fun FPS Dungeon crawler with fancy graphics, simple content and awesome perks & Upgrades. Unfortunately abandoned by the developers . However there's a known constant stuttering "bug" in the game which is more likely to get you killed the higher you get in stages I'd still recommend to buy this game DURING the sale. This game certainly isn't worth 10 bucks.

Every bullet counts!

Good rouge-like shooter. When i played this first time white worms (idk how does it called) scared me so much.
Its hard but easier than ETG.
Unfortunetly i had a problem. When i played this game sometimes it crashed. But reinstall helped.
Anyway: Its good game for low price ( I bought it for 1.49 euro)
I recommend this

i Don't have much play time yet but, so far, the game is absolutely amazing. It has great graphics and really interesting decisions in game design that makes the game all the more unique and enjoyable. DO NOT play this game if you don't want to suffer withdrawal symptoms anytime you're not playing it.

Hard as nails, will make you angry... but then you'll come back for more.

It's like Rainbow Six's old Terrorist Hunt mode but you're on your own and there's no terrorists. Just weird dog things (amongst other) which WILL you destroy you.

Grab those heavy bullets, you'll need them.

It could be fun, but constant severe stuttering going to get you killed. Game is out for a long time and since this problem wasn't solved yet it probably never will.

Ay yo, do you enjoy your silly FPS games and have quite a bit of fun strafing and trying to hit targets quickly? And do you like roguelikes? Get this game for yourself then, okay?

Honestly though it's pretty fun. It's small, but it's deeeefinitely worth a sale price if you like adventuring and shooting. You'll become accustomed to the graphics and know what to look out for after playing for a while. I enjoyed this game quite a bit.

This game is well worth the price. I haven't even come close to the end yet but already I think there is more than enough content. If you tend to get angry about dying in a game, then this isn't for you, as once you die, unless you've stashed money in the bank, you lose everything.

This game is pretty fun but I'd only recommend buying it durring a sale like I did. I don't think it's worth 10 bucks but thats subject to each person's opinion. It has some replay value and even if it doesn't particularly grab me I find myself loading it up every so often.

Pros:
It's got some pretty interesting mechanics what with the bullets being reusable and causing you to retrieve them due to the fact that you have nothing to defend yourself if you run out of bullets. The whole rougelike mechanics are pretty heavy in this game as well. You don't really make a lot of money off of enemies so with the prices going up the deeper you go it becomes really important to balance what you want to spend your money on. Potions, healing, bombs, the discount (which should be top priority), your life insurance, etc. With money being so important it both makes sense and sucks that almost everything in the game only sells for 5 dollars, with a few exceptions.

Cons:
Although it can be fun I can't really recommend it to people, as interesting and unique as it is. As many have said there is an unsolved sutter issue that happens every so often. Its pretty random when it happens. You can go a whole game without it and sometimes you cant get it to stop. On top of that I feel like theres some balance issues with hitboxes and such. I've been attacked through a wall from around the corner by one of the imps as well as a crawler. Turret placement can be a real pain to deal with when its only weakpoint is behind it and it shoots two times per second. The turrets are deadly accurate as well, forcing you to constantly move in order to dodge them which can really put you at a disadvantage if theres more than one or other enemies in the same room. I've also had it on more than one occasion where a turret's bullet clipped a corner and still damaged me even though I was out of the line of fire/line of sight.

On top of all that the developer has given up on the game so there won't be any updates in the future. It's a pretty barebones game that has the potential to be better but sadly wont be. I wouldn't mind seeing some more balances, bug fixes, and additonal items and enemies.

I personally wouldn't give it more than 6/10

This game has been abandonned and left us with game that has WAY too much micro-stutter. I like the game, but micro-stutter is a run killer, so it's a deal breaker.

This issue has been relevant on the forums for a long while now with the DEV nowhere to been seen or heard.

Do yourself a favor and don't get this game.
