Coming in for a landing today
The deadly game of ring ‘round the rosie just got deadlier. Because nothing says holiday cheer quite like pulse-pounding bullet-hell action!
Today, indie publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer SmokeStab welcome players back to the gun show, inviting them to arm up and take part in 360° action-platformer Orbital Bullet’s largest update to date! The content update, called, “Over 9000,” introduces hundreds of QoL improvements, buffed weapons, and reward system overhauls making Orbital Bullet’s fast-paced SHMUP gameplay more fluid than ever.
Available on Switch, Orbital Bullet features high-octane, bullet-hell gameplay set in vibrant, procedurally generated environments packed with enemies sure to make your trigger finger itch. Gear up and take on the nefarious Dread Corporation, or go out guns blazing!
Showcased in the developer’s full changelog, the “Over 9000” update chiefly implements feedback from players; the main focus of this cumulative update is fixing persistent performance issues and implementing suggested changes made by the community. In addition to gameplay improvements, Smokestab has added new endgame content, weapon and enemy modifiers, visual effects, loot rewards, and various early-game improvements to help new players progress faster through the game.
Players can now enjoy an updated skill tree, Golden Weapon improvements, and a whole host of overhauls added to the Eternity Tower level, which features a relentless ‘Endless Mode’ for those seeking something along the lines of…pure unbridled pandemonium.
