Worst game ever. Jumping is impossible to control, and you cant aim upwards. this makes the boss (actually just an average enemy with lots of health) on Test 6 impossible. You have no room to dodge, and you can't shoot the projectiles because you can't aim upwards properly. This game feels like its in VERY early alpha, and seems like it would of taken a couple of days to make. This game shouldn't even be on Steam, it's complete garbage.

Easily one of the worst games I've ever played.
You can't move a single step out of line before you fall off the map. The enemies have no AI other than walk straight to you -- and they can walk on air, unlike you.
The guns are mostly useless, and do not fit the visual style of the rest of the game at all.

The only good thing about this game is the soundtrack, which by itself does not justify purchase of this pile of garbage.

Why?
Why can I bunnyhop and won't stop jumping?
Why is there unlimited ammo?
Why are there pitfalls everywhere?
Why does the game change its pace every level?

Controls are kinda awkward, especially that bunny hopping can easily kill you. And the game needs to decide what it wants to be. Sometimes it's a shooter, sometimes a bad 3d platformer. Level design seems arbitrary to me with obvious misdesigns. Why do I have to get the bat and don't have it from the beginning? Enemy AI is non-existant. Why change the environement in level 6? Why insta-kill lava without warning? Why why why?

I honestly could not stand this game even though I played through the first five levels. Being hard is one thing, being frustrating another. Do not buy this, even for one buck. Sorry.

The soundtrack is good though. And it has cards. I don't care.

It could be better, but seeing as it doesn't have custom controls, that's hard to figure out, beyond its already awkwardly weighted mouse look. Obstructing and bland. It's colorful look may be fun for a select few, but I'll pass.

Not sure if this should be even called a "game". But I am sure about another thing - this should NOT be available to worldwide customers on Steam. If disrespecting gamers community will not be stopped, soon they will offer to us nothing, and we will have to pay for it. Making games is like an art... just like painting when it comes to imagination... Dead Bits is like empty easel.

I saw this game on Markiplier and it looked kinda fun so i decided to instal it and play it.
Unlike most people i see in the reviews i did enjoy playing it!

Its true the story doesnt make any sense! But....
It works good, i havent seen any bugs, Its easy, Good controls, It looks funky, The music is awesome, You get cards for this game and you have a gun that u never have to reload!
It kinda feels like buying a Negev in CS:GO and just hold ur mouse and keep shooting like life depends on it.

If its worth 5 euro? idk... But this game is surely not as bad as most people here say!

This game as a commercial product is a bad joke. I dont know where it is came from into my library. From a bundle maybe. It appeared in the list of badges with card drops remaining, thats why I started it. I wont waste my time to write a long criticism, others did it already. Believe them. This "game" is completely garbage. It isnt worth your time, even if you get it for free.

This is a game programmed, desgined, etc. by one guy. having seen that, I'm going to change my review a little bit.

While good and simplistic in design, there are a few things about this game that are frustrating.

- when shooting at large enemies close up, there are usually no frames of reference, causing cheap falling deaths
- the weapons are fairly ineffective
- The platforming is frustrating.
- if you die, you have to reload the level. There is no retry button, save for the last level, which restarts on it's own when you die.

There is a certain bit of trial an error in the game... The weapons are farily weak, yes. But it does add to the panic of the game... and some cheap deaths I mentioned above.

The level designs are pretty meh until you get to the 6th and 7th levels. Then they look really cool, but the platforming is still rough, 8th level is unique, 9th is a gauntlet. Be warned... the 5th level is super frustrating...

The soundtrack is awesome! I really enjoyed listening to it. Even when I was growling in frustration, the music (when it played) was entertaining and kept me somewhat involved.

This game is far from perfect. I recommend this game with a caveat: Don't come into this expecting perfect physics and amazing controls. This I see as more of an art project. Kinda neat, but not something to spend a whole lot of time on.

Good game. The music is great, gunplay is ok. I would reccomend everyone to buy it if level 6 didn't exist. This level is the most frustrating thing i ever came across in gaming - instant failure states, no checkpoints, and lags. I stopped playing after 12th try.

This game is good. Utterly good.

I must admit it, it's very short: there are only nine levels, and once you complete them the game is over. There are no achievement to keep you playing a little... Things like complete every level in order without dying even once.
Furthermore, the difficulty swings between excessively easy to quite hard, depending by the level and other factors.
Only three weapons, and when you can choose which you want to use, the machinegun turns out to be the best one, most efficient and the one with the best feedback. The baseball bat... it's a melee weapon, hence you'll find it having its inherent downsides, along with a low speed; Nonetheless, I found the shotgun having the same, discouraging, rate of fire.

But forget all these things! There are flaws, undoubtedly, but the bright colours and the happy dubstep soundtrack will surely let you enjoy the little trip among the twists and turns that this game has to offer. It will be a short ride, but intense and original.
While you will find yourself unable to change almost any settings, but it doesn't matter; this is a game that has to be taken as we used to approach those Insert Coin games, which entertained ourselves for several hours in the arcade rooms.

Do not expec a masterpiece. Expect something that feels not even Beta Access, but Alpha Build, regardless, I recommend you this purchase: if you're going to pay it less than a burger, then it's definitely worth the purchase!

If you need ratings

Grapich: 6
Sound: 6
Longevity: 2
Gameplay: 6

Overall: 6/10

As someone who dislikes the dubstep, I'm in love with its soundtrack. It's surprisingly fitting for this terrible game.

English Review
This game is quite good. Graphics broad-spectrum color that pulls you very eyes what is wrong. This is a game in which you take a gun and shoot enemies (zombies). Just the 2 level of the game is difficult. I do not like the whole environment and enemies that shoot are only built from cubes, which I find to be, as the game Minecraft. But otherwise it is a fun game where you just shoot without limitation, ammunition and still is the perfect music in the game.
My rating 6/10.

Slovak Review
Táto hra je celkom dobrá. Grafika širokospektrá farbami, ktorá Vám veľmi ťahá oči, čo je zlé. Ide o hru, v ktorej zoberiete si zbrane a strieľate nepriateľov (zombíkov). Už len 2 level hry je ťažší. Nepáči sa mi, že celé prostredie aj nepriatelia, ktorých strieľate sú stavaný len z kociek, čo mi pripadá byť, ako hra Minecraft. Ale inač je to zábavná hra, kde proste strieľate bez obmedzenia munície a ešte je perfektná hudba v hre.
Moje hodnotenie 6/10.

Dead Bits is some kinda test-game or something.
It's like "I've put together all these ideas I had jumping around in my head, I'll leave you to fuss over the details."
Gee, thanks.

Each of the 9 stages has a gimmick. The first one consists entirely of shooting a few block-zombies. The second stage features more block-zombies, and an additional gun. The stage after that? More block-zombies, and a bat. There's a stage where you don't get any weapons, and giant block-golems(?) take pot-shots at you with boulders. These aren't particularly interesting, well-balanced, or even fun gimmicks. They're more like those parts in your favorite games you always dread, but with slippery controls, worse platforming, and cheap deaths.

Normally I'd write up a long list of ideas that could be implemented, for Dead Bits to approach some level of entertainment. However, I'm going to guess we're far beyond that point now. In fact, with this game I wouldn't even know where to start. Should I write that Dead Bits would be fantastic if it....was never made in the first place? That's not exactly constructive is it? Maybe I could say that it'd be great if this game was really unstable and crashed all the time, so then I wouldn't be able to play it. Hmm...I guess I better quit while I'm behind.

Dead Bits isn't the worst game I've ever played, It's probably not even in the top 100. I think that says more about me than anything. Aside from the all-important cards, this is not a game you would want to spend any time with.

Gotta admit though, I like the music.
