An attempt to take the first person shooter down to it's barest bones. The problem with this game is that it doesn't feel statisfying or like any sort of accomplishment when you actually succeed, and when you fail, it feels cheap.

The only reason I actually own this game is because crafting a badge gave me a coupon for it, so I was able to pick it up for 10 cents, I don't even want to play the game, I'm only in it for the 4 trading card, simply viewing the screenshots was enough to know this game is bad. 10/10 would idlemaster again

The only redeeming point about this game is the soundtrack, which is pretty much only dubstep.

And that's coming from someone who hate dubstep.

This game is truely a game that only a person with true knowelge and insight of the current gaming market could understand. One day, in the far, far future, someone will look at this game and wonder why on earth, (or Jupiter by then) this game would ever cost a mere $ .99. But till that day it will be seen as nothing more than a pile of feces. However, after beating the game for myself I can now say, I have truely looked at the face of God. 11/10 IGN

There isn't anything not wrong with it... Very confusing on what can kill you, physics are horrible, almost ripped my eyes out.

Passes for a great Rage game :D

A first person shooter that is very unpolished but with a price point to match the quality. Animations are mediocre. Level design isn't amazing, there are a few random dead ends with seemingly no point to them. Controls are decent but jumps are unforgiving. Once you jump you're committed to that direction and distance (it doesn't let you adjust your path mid-air).

There are scores but it seems like you only get points for enemy kills (no timer, no health bonuses, etc.)

There are a few weapons but levels generally force you into a specific weapon or give you a small selection. Weapons are pretty standard, not very different except in rate of fire and damage. There is no ammo/heat management; you can shoot forever. The shotgun seems to have a little spread, I couldn't tell if any other weapon had any special properties.

There are no checkpoints but while levels can be long, they didn't feel excessively long. It was still annoying to repeat the whole level if you died at the end but some people like to be forced to do it right in one go.

When you die it takes a little while to try again because it shows a death screen, brings you to the main menu, then you have to load up and start the level and finally wait a few more seconds hovering midair until the game lets you move. I would've liked to be able to skip through some of that (especially the hover) and get back into the action quicker. Hovering is nice to see the map from above the first time you go through but is just a waste of time afterwards.

As a side note, I died a lot more by falling off the world than by actual enemy damage. You need to get a good idea of the terrain because you'll want to strafe or kite while shooting and it's incredibly easy to fall off a level.

Pausing doesn't actually pause the game (you can still move, jump and take damage). Enemies and the world keep going as usual so you can die while 'paused'.

Would've been nice for better volume controls (there is one unlabelled master volume slider in the pause screen but not the main menu). Volume resets to max every time you load a level. It also would be nice to have control mapping (to change key bindings) and have keys for cycling through weapons.

Some other notes:
  • Big enemies and certain obstacles shatter into blocks when destroyed. However, these blocks hamper your movement and soak bullets until you shoot them away or they despawn after a few seconds.
  • If you hold down space you'll jump repeatedly which can lead you to jumping off the level if you hold it too long. Also, sometimes it lets you climb up slightly slanted walls. I could climb on top of one of the 'tunnels' (from the inside) in level 6 but there's no real benefit. You can also infinitely jump on the spinning insta-kill asterisks in level 9 if you land on the right area.
  • Your character doesn't follow moving platforms so you have to move to follow it in order to stay on.
  • Apparently blue blocks are like water blocks because they give off a squish sound when you land on them. Red is like lava and instantly kills you.

Worth a look if you like unpolished/bad games. You have to know something's a bit off when one of the store screenshots is of the trading cards.

Considering the entire game was developed by one man, Dead Bits is a pretty impressive effort. Unfortunately, the game is lacking in almost every aspect when compared to its competition with the exception of its toe-tapping, head-bobbing dubstep soundtrack. If you're curious what's possible with the Unity engine and you like dubstep, it might be worth a look, and if you do, make sure to add on the soundtrack for a buck. Otherwise, stay clear.
