Featuring randomly generated levels and permadeath over eight levels, the game is fast paced with quick movement and low health for both enemies and the player. A handful of different enemy types are found, offering various challenges in the neon-colored maps. The revolver only holds eight bullets, which must be picked up and manually reloaded after they are used, adding tension. A large variety of items can be purchased using coins dropped by enemies: potions to heal, buffs for speed or collection radii, or alternative weapons like knives and rockets. Coins can also be stored at a bank for future playthroughs, or you can opt for life insurance or a last will to preserve items for next time. Heavy Bullets offers a very effective combination of fast-paced first-person shooting with roguelike elements to produce a compelling gaming experience.
