Author Comments

Bullet Boy: Arena is a top-down shooter game initially made for the Game Maker's ToolKit game jam on itch.io where instead of shooting - you launch yourself! Seens simple enough...
Avoid the walls and destroy the increasingly difficult waves of enemies in this action-packed battle arena!
Play the original at zzverot.itch.io/bullet-boy-arena
Update: Newgrounds automaticallt set the embed with so it was too small and unplayable. Fixed the viewport size, it should work fine now.

Not bad for a first attempt... a simple timer and differently shaped levels (possibly a maze-type? with a goal at the end?) would make this even better. Keep it up!

I agree with some of the other players, it's too easy to just to back and forth over the same spot, so maybe some power ups or health to encourage movement? good game though I haven't seen a game like this in a while

Zzverot responds:

I was planing to add randomly spawning powerups around the map and also combos for bouncing around, but im still working on that.

It's fine. You can get really far by moving back and forth over the same space.

Zzverot responds:

Yes i know and i will work on encouraging movement around the map with the next update because that takes the fun out of the game.

What about bring more fun?

Zzverot responds:

How do you mean more fun? I was planning to add achievements and combos in newer updates. You can read about it here https://zzverot.itch.io/bullet-boy-arena/devlog/62836/major-polish-update
