Asteroids+Firing your own obstacles+dodging=fun? You might say.

Here we have Bullets, a asteroid type game that has a few interesting ideas, first and foremost is the fact that you have to shoot out what you are to avoid. Think of “What goes around, comes around” as the motto for this game. THere are no asteroids or other ships, just what you have fired. The game doesn’t start until you have fired X amount of rounds. You have to avoid those shots for X amount of time. The ammo you use gets switched up every time you pass a stage, as do the time requirements.

Flaw time! The controls, alas, they are not great. Your little ship will slide across the map with a press of an arrow key, which subtracts from the experience considerably. Also is this: on the levels further on, the gameplay gets… crazy. Well, time for something of a metaphor. Take the song “Psychobilly freakout” and find a music visualizer, and have the visualizer play psychobilly freakout. Attempt to pay attention to Everything on screen at once. Did you find it hard to keep up with? That is the gameplay of Bullets when there is more than two things to avoid. Its sickening, turning the game from less of an avoider to more of a Slide-outta-there-and-then-pray-that-you-don’t-get-hit type game. Oh lookie, a big flaws paragraph. Woo hoo.

8/10. Nothing too special.

8/10. An avoider. Not too much else.

8/10. Some nice techno here and there. Mute included.

9/10. Shoot then avoid what you shot. Originality oozes from this game.

6/10. Sliding is for slides, not avoiding death.

Great concept, but a those two things harm gameplay boatloads. 8/10
