Getting to the end won’t be easy though, since one bad leap, is enough to send you back to the beginning of your current level and if you run into enemies, they will shoot you. To counter this, armed with a gun of your own that’s loaded with bullets that bounce, you have the option to shoot first and rescue the occasional friend.
For the players looking for a true challenge however, Bouncy Bullets does feature leaderboards, so why settle for simply beating a level when you can strive to obtain all 3 stars and share your epic skills for the whole world to see?
- 4 worlds made up of 12 levels each (48 levels in total)
- Plenty of colourful terrains for players to bounce around on and shoot enemies
- Friends in need of rescuing
- First-person exploration and combat
- In-game leaderboards
Bouncy Bullets - Launch Trailer
Bouncy Bullets can seem a bit easy if you're not looking to three-star every level, but it presents a nice challenge for those who are willing to put in a bit of time and effort. The game is short, but that may be to its advantage as that difficulty can easily turn some people off in large quantities.
Bouncy Bullets really isn't a good game, but when I changed my style of play I did find a bit of fun. As a speedrunner I don't think it's satisfying trying to master these levels, but there are some possibilities beneath the surface for those willing to look. Yet, it still feels amateurish in ways. With subpar controls, I'd take a pass until a patch or sale, even with the low price.
Bouncy Bullets is one of Petite Games’ better concepts but it’s a game that doesn’t make full use of its potential with its design. It’s a colourful game with an excellent soundtrack but the frame rate issues when using bounce pads, the thicker than custard AI and the shortness to the game relegate this to yet more Trophy Hunter fodder and little else. A real shame.
