A call to all our fans! Our latest game has been announced!

Our newest game is called Rogue Legacy, a procedurally-generated Castlevania with an in-depth heritage system. super proud of it, but right now we need your help to get it on Steam.

If enjoyed the games made in the past, it would mean the world to us if you could visit the page below, and give us a vote on Greenlight. /sharedfiles/filedetails/


Your galaxy has been invaded by melodic celestial bodies, and you've been tasked to save it. Bullet Audyssey is a rhythm-based shoot 'em up where you must "Survive the Beat." Absorb enemy bullets and fire it back at them, slow down time, upgrade your ship and level up.

We wanted to try something new using music as a template for the game mechanics. Many thanks to the incredible musicians on NG, where we got more than 85% of our music.

We hope you guys enjoy it!

Quick Controls Explanation:
- WASD, arrow keys, or numpad to move.
- Z, comma (for WASD) or SPACEBAR to shoot.
- X, period (for WASD) or SHIFT to slow time down.

Many apologies for the long loading time (it's a music game after all). Make sure to try out the tutorial while you wait!

bit of a problem...

after I played for about half an hour, the controls started becoming unresponsive. it ended up maaking me lose so many ships and otherwise easy levels.

I'm pretty sure you didn't intend for the ship to fly into bullet when I just tap the left arrow key. you might want to look into this.

that aside, I really like this game. very nice bullet hell.

I like it...

but i can't beat it. I can't beat half the levels for that matter. Your a good designer, this is a great game, and has awesome feel to it. But I just feel its too hard on alot of levels. sure you can slow time but its not as helpful as I wish it would be.

People find this review helpful!

Definitely a tough game

This was a good game to play, though I think that the difficulty ratings for a few of these levels are a bit too low (particularly for levels 6 and 7, because I haven't been able to pass those as of yet). Heck, even 5 was difficult for me before I managed to work out a good pattern for the parts with both the slower small and faster large shots (the rhythm of the music did help there, though). And this doesn't seem to be an issue resulting from not using the slow-down mechanic very wisely, considering that you aren't given much of a window to shoot otherwise. Even considering that the hit-boxes for each bullet is smaller than their sprites (I think), these levels seem a bit harder than 1.5 or 2 stars when you first unlock them (unless the maximum difficulty is 2 stars).
And, yes, I realize that bullet hell games are supposed to be hard. I'm not complaining about that. It's just that the difficulty rankings seem a bit off.
Otherwise, this is a very nice game idea, combining music and bullet hell games, an idea I hope to see more of in the future. I will definitely keep trying to pass levels 6 and 7 (and beyond), and will hopefully continue to enjoy this game years later.
Well Done!
