Bullet Heaven, Episode M1 -  Vritra

ini. Mobile. Shmups.

 

Welcome to Bullet Heaven M, the mini, snack-sized, on-the-go Bullet Heaven looking at Mobile and Handheld shooters for your phones, tablets and portable gaming systems. This Season 4 series will examine games that we just can't directly record for Bullet Heaven (PSP notwithstanding) in a shorter, concise format.

 

Didn't like it? Let me know where to improve, and Bullet Heaven M will evolve in turn!

 

In Episode M-1, we take a look at the 2012 iOS and Android release, Vritra, a side-scrolling shmup with dragons. Worth the $2? Watch to find out!

Akai Katana REVIEW (Xbox 360) - Bullet Heaven, Episode 51

After a fairly lengthy hiatus, Daeruna's back, and we can safely say: sometimes being wrong is the best thing ever! With Europe getting so much shooting love with games like DoDonPachi Resurrection, Rising Star Games brings Cave's Akai Katana to the Xbox 360, and shows that there can still be retail-released Shmups in North America after the questionable Otomedius. But is it worth your time? Oh man, sit down and "GET READY"!!

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 40 - Air Zonk

It's the Season Finale of Bullet Heaven! In this episode, we take a look at the TurboGrafx-16 hit Air "Zonk", released in 1992 by Hudson. Not only did this game push the HuCard format to its technical limits, it has also been an absolute favorite of many of the few who have played it... but has it stood the test of time?

I'D LIKE TO THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU OUT THERE FOR MAKING BULLET HEAVEN A SUCCESS FOR NEARLY TWO YEARS! SEE YOU IN SEASON 3!!
