Bite the Bullet is a beautifully animated roguelite shooter that combines the gleeful 2D arcade carnage of Metal Slug with an extensive RPG upgrade system as you blast (and eat) your way through an army of undead ghouls, monsters and mutants.
Currently in development by Mega Cat Studios (creators of the retro barista beat em up, Coffee Crisis), Bite the Bullet is a roguelite RPG shooter where you eat the bodies of dead enemies to power-up your character, weapons and abilities. The game combines old school run n’ gun arcade action with a deep upgrade system that takes place within your stomach.
As you blast your way through the Bite the Bullet’s 40 stages, you can eat nearly everything you see – enemies, bullets and even walls can be munched on and used to craft upgrades. There are three branching skill trees that you can follow based on your diet and you can even craft exotic new weapons depending on what (or who) you’ve eaten. There’s a wide selection of monsters to blast (and eat), and a diverse array of weapons and modifiers to play around with – allowing you to create Spicy Critter Cannons and Organic Meat-Seeking Missiles, among many others. You’ll also be able to temporarily transform into a “Zombro” and smash enemies to a pulp.
It’s a great looking game, with high quality pixel art animation, a fun sense of humor and a gloriously gross upgrade system. A bombastic roguelike RPG shooter where you really are what you eat.
