im gonna make a specific thread for this game bc its a new and ongoing thing

so it reminds me most of rogue legacy, except more top down than sidescroller. its a bullet hell game where you dodge shit. when you enter a room, you clear it before it opens back up. if you die, you more or less start over. its super snappy and plays well



i usually play as the hunter because her bow is sick and she has a corgi. the marine is also nice because im an idiot and need the extra hit. later hoarding keys is effective and grue made a good point of using the pilot because he can forego the lock opening

so far, i can make it to the second floor reliably 50% of the time. it worries me that the gun selection is very rng-reliant because if you get a good one the boss fights get easy. the one time ive made it to the 2nd floor boss (that is, cleared every other room first because thats the way 2 play) i beat it. ive only seen one 2nd floor boss, is what i mean.

i think the twins are the worst 1st floor bosses. i think theyre supposed to be cheesy but i keep making stupid dodges and hitting them. or they lunge into me. i think the bullet king is easiest

im as far as, i got the first npc and am at step 2 of the second npc now

i've been playing a lot and i like it, though i find myself losing a lot because i get super careless. i like the pilot, though i can honestly say that out of the probably 8-9 times i've tried to pick a lock, it's worked a singular time.

i've mostly been playing the marine, not just for the extra hit but because his default gun feels the strongest to me. the pilot's default gun is butts, it has such a wild spread of bullets when you fire it.

what is the coolest gun you've found? i got a vertebraek-47 which fires these huge bullets that are attached to each other by chains and seem to very lightly home in on on enemies, and i also found the greatest gun ever created... the colt single action army.

I pirated the game and played it through until I unlocked the elevator to level 2, and now I'm restarting because I bought the game. i had 10hours into my pirate savefile and oddly enough it migrated to steam lol - but i deleted it, i dont want any future issues.

The thing that I love about the game - other than the very responsive mechanics and addictive gameplay - is that the characters are all very well balanced imo. Pilot is the most difficult one because his laser weapon is literally trash, but his lockpicking is so fucking useful it pays up nicely. Convict is a nono for me, but that's because I keep forgetting how overpowered that molotov cocktail is.

I still think that the level 2 bosses are easier than the level 1 bosses. The reason is, I think, that by level two the chances of carrying a decent weapon are so much higher, whereas it's easy at level one to find yourself in a bad gun situation. Still, the toughest boss for me right now is Bullet King, because I keep letting myself be trapped by his combo (red bullet scatter + aoe). Both the bullet bros and the gattling gull (GG) are ezpz if you learn to keep your distance.

with GG I even once or twice managed to lock him into a melle loop: you circle him round while firing, and every turn you kinda step closer so you trigger his melee attack, then step back out so you dont get hit. if you do it right, he won't trigger any other of his attacks, and you can ace him.

speaking of acing, ive aced level 1 a couple of times already, so im getting the hang of things. too bad none of that is on my steam record.

Edit: The coolest gun so far was a gun bought in the overworld store, a green laser thing that wrecks every face good lord

oh, my favorite gun was either the helix gun (it shoots out two arcs that separate and come together and you can focus an enemy on the nodes) or, keepin it simple, the triple crossbow. it rules

the shock gun (the one that looks like a duracell battery in my screenshot) is insane, it basically won me the fight before i could get hit. also, the gorgun is probably the easiest boss in the game so far for me.
