Difficulty Modes overhaul!



New update!

We have modified how difficulty modes work in order to help newcomers adapt to this demanding game. Now we have Easy, Normal and Hard modes. The default difficulty mode is Normal.

Hard Mode
- Limited time to beat the game.
- No life recovery items.

Normal Mode
- Limited time to beat the game.
- Life recovery items available.
- Slower enemy bullets.
- Player weapons deal more damage.

Easy Mode
- Unlimited time to beat the game.
- Life recovery items available.
- Even slower enemy bullets.
- Player weapons deal even more damage.

The game is still demanding with players, regardless of the selected difficulty mode, but hopefully this new approach will help new players adapt to the game and enjoy the adventure.

Our advice: try beating the first five stages in Normal or Easy mode. If you cannot beat that part of the game on that difficulty setting, then you should probably ask for a refund. Anyway, getting better at the game it's a matter of time, practice and patience.

Thanks for your time!

New "Extra Missions" game mode!



Big update!

Since today, a new game mode titled "Extra Missions" has been added to the game. This new mode is accessible from the title main menu, but only after you beat the game in story mode (i.e, you have unlocked the "Revenger" achievement).

This mode adds another 25 stages, maybe harder than the normal ones due to more crowded waves of bots and enemy vehicles. Also, the last stage of the Extra Missions mode is a Boss Rush, that we think you'll enjoy.

So, that's it! A reward for those who love the game and want to prove their skills even further.

Enjoy!

“When you’ve been playing the game for a couple of hours and still can’t make it past the fourth level, you may be wondering if you’re playing the game wrong. (PROTIP: You ARE playing the game wrong.)”
8-Bit Horse

“There's no shortage of indie games that are described as “old school difficult” or “tough-as-nails” or “NES hard”. I've used those terms to describe games myself. Bot Vice, however, may be even harder than “NES hard”.”
GameCrate

“Bot Vice will definitely satisfy hardcore arcade fans, and probably frustrate everyone else. [...] It looks good, it sounds great, it handles very tight, and it’s a love letter to old school gaming at its core.”

Bot Vice Original Soundtrack



Bot Vice original soundtrack is now available for purchase on Bandcamp. Composed by Dominic Ninmark, an amazing full 90's synth-rock videogame score is awaiting you. We highly recommend supporting this artist!

About This Game

VERY IMPORTANT NOTES!

  • Bot Vice is NOT for relaxing! You'll need full energy and focus to play this!
  • There is no difficulty curve! It's hard and demanding just from the start!
  • Gamepad controller highly recommended!

THE GAME!

Show off your skills & reflexes in this frantic gallery shooter, filled with bullets, bots and explosions. You play as Erin Saver, carrying out her personal vendetta against the criminal Wildbots. Fast arcade action. Pure gameplay. No filler.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Super intense arcade shooting action.
  • One unique challenging boss per stage!
  • Unlockable "Extra Missions" mode.
  • Three difficulty modes: Hard, Normal and Easy.
  • Polished and colorful pixel art visuals.
  • Catchy 90's synth-rock soundtrack.

    HURRY UP!

    The clock is ticking... Literally! Your time to beat this adventure is limited. This feature is the most critical one of the game. If you have N minutes to beat all the missions and you only reach stage 24 before running out of time, stage 25 will remain locked and inaccessible. You'll have to replay previous stages (any stage, at any time, whenever you want) in order to obtain better clear times, gaining extra seconds to unlock the next stages.

    It's all about understanding and mastering Erin’s small but useful set of moves and weapons, and knowing all enemy patterns. That's the only way you'll reach the end of the adventure. This is our challenge to you.
