Bleed offers a unique and fast-paced take on the run and gun genre with colorful and charming results that's sure to keep you entertained. However, it lacks in substantial postgame content alongside a story mode that is over before you know it.

Bleed seems to be a good game when we want to share couch with a friend and at the end of the day feel we accomplished something. It's a nice shooter with fast action and difficult, but pattern-bound bosses.

Short but sweet, Bleed should be praised as an achievement, especially for a one-man studio. You could wait for that sale, but surely you should support the little guy, right? There’s guaranteed fun if you do.

Bleed is a good, solid platformer which offers a good chunk of replayability, and there's a lot of challenge on offer in the higher difficulties. It won't last you long though - its seven levels will take just over an hour.

Beyond that, however, I see Bleed's appeal, but it's a game that just isn't for me, at least not right now. It's a distinct experience in that it's a modern game dressed in a retro game's skin, with a substantial learning curve built into it before you're even competent. I don't think it's bad at all, but playing it feels like I've found myself in the cockpit of some vehicle that I don't know how to drive, five seconds before a crash. I figure there's a decent audience for this sort of game out there, but I'm not in it.

Bleed is an entertaining 2D action game with lots of replay value. The more you play, the better stuff you can get for your arsenal – not to mention the upgrades you can get to increase your odds of survival. The game is perfect for speedrunners, but it also offers something for those who don't mind not worrying about shaving a second or two to their overall completion time. If you're looking for a fast-paced, action-packed and (in the higher difficulty settings) challenging release, then be sure to check this one from Bootdisk Revolution and Digerati!

Bleed on Switch works fine and seems originally designed for this new console. After four years, the game is still engaging, but 15 euros for a game that can be bought at 99 cent on Steam is a very bad marketing choice.

Bleed is not the most ambitious game ever made but that's not really necessary when its gameplay is simple but action-packed and will grasp the players' attention immediately. Being a game that's been on the market for a few years now, Bleed's price tag seems too high but that doesn't mean that fans of action games will not be allured by its simple yet effective and fun gameplay.

All in all, it was a decent experience for the short 2-3 hours it lasted, but I wouldn't be happy with it if I had to pay $15 for it.
