    If heavy metal has you running for the hills, then BPM: Bullets Per Minute won’t convert you. But for everyone else, this is an adrenaline fuelled heavy-metal ride that you’d be daft to miss.

    BPM: Bullets Per Minute is an addictive, innovative, and punishingly hard roguelite shooter-slash-rhythm game - and it's great.

    The biggest complaints with the game are not that the concept and execution aren't good enough, the issue is that the game deserves more content, more attention, and more development of its great ideas.

    BPM: Bullets Per Minute is an old-school shooter with a twist, adding in roguelike mechanics as well as rhythm-based gameplay. Jump, dash, shoot and reload to the beat to advance through a host of monster-filled levels, collecting keys, coins, equipment, and stats to try and get through the seven stages that constitute each playthrough. The gameplay is fun, fast, and frantic, it looks good and sounds great, with a perfect heavy-metal soundtrack, though there are a few flaws. A lack of enemy variety, particularly bosses, as well as level variety starts to show quickly.

    BPM is a well-executed, unique take on the rhythm-roguelite genre that has a lot to offer – if you can get accustomed to its demanding gameplay hook.

    BPM is a great concept somewhat fumbled, redeemed when it breaks its own rules.

    The few times that the RNG in BPM: Bullets Per Minute actually managed to put together a set of weapons and abilities that allowed for significant progress, the game shined, but it's just not worth the hours of suffering failed runs and mistimed shots. To borrow the game's own 90s shooter comparisons, playing BPM is like diving into Doom on Ultra Nightmare before learning how to play an FPS. The fun is still there, but it's buried under so many roadblocks and complications. The frustrating end result is a game with a great idea that bungles just about every part of the execution.

    Топовая игра, а саунд просто пушка.
    К визуалу быстро привыкаешь, а солянка жанров выдаёт очень уникальный и приятный опыт.

    Can't stop playing it. Good rogue-like system with very satifsying rhytm shooting on metal tunes. Pure awesomness.

    I absolutely loathe the graphical style. OMG it is so bad. But, you know what? That is totally irrelevant right now. This game is so much funI absolutely loathe the graphical style. OMG it is so bad. But, you know what? That is totally irrelevant right now. This game is so much fun and so addictive. Slap on some good headphones and get immersed! Two caveats: if you don't enjoy hard rock music then you may struggle to enjoy this experience (I wouldn't listen to the soundtrack outside of playing the game but I can enjoy it enough while playing), and it is a particularly difficult shooter even on "easy" mode. But oh so much fun. Just watch, musicians of all stripes, shapes and sizes are going to want on this bandwagon for interactive music entertainment. The best element of this game? Without a question, it is the ability to regenerate in a new level each time you die. Don’t get me wrong. You don’t want to die. Ever. But at least you don't do the same enemies time and time again, whenever you die. Another smart feature they implemented is to play really, really annoying sounds after you die. The best way to avoid that sound is to quickly launch into another game before you have time to think about whether you want another round of mayhem. And it works beautifully. Expand

If the soundtrack and gameplay clicks for you, you will have a great time and the flaws wont bother so much. Hopefully overtime the devs can update the ui and balancing so the game feel better balanced and polished. I am having a blast playing it!! Its been awhile since I had so much fun. Also, its a rather cheap game so you can easily give it a chance. Expand

    BPM is not a bad game. It is a game that I'd really wish I could love. But let's be honest; it really lacks a proper 'Easy' difficultyBPM is not a bad game. It is a game that I'd really wish I could love. But let's be honest; it really lacks a proper 'Easy' difficulty setting.
    I love the concept. I love trying to get to the first boss, but after 4 hours of not managing to beat it (the first of the six or so bosses of the first world, if I understand it well...), well, the fun is totally dissolved into frustration. And some hate, too.
    Not everyone is a pro gamer breezing through Doom in Nightmare Setting blindfolded.
    I accept difficulty, I have a problem with exaggerated elitism.
