At this time the NG version of Gatlin' only has World 1, future worlds will be coming soon

If you would like to try the full game now, consider supporting us on Steam.

Meet Blot. He's your everyday regular doodle with a vengeance... and a giant gatling gun. Help Blot along on his quest to take down the fearsome dictator known as Art. Shoot, propel, and pogo your way through dozens of challenging levels to fulfill Blot's destiny!


  • Loads of levels!
  • Strange, yet oddly charming, boss fights!
  • A unique, physics-based way of movement.
  • Quirky humor and jokes. Is this a plus? I honestly don't know.
  • It's a hard game. Both a pro and a con!


Gatlin' is a physics-based platforming bullet hell where you are the bullet hell! Fling your way across dozens of levels with your trusty gatling gun of doom. Try your best not to die, but believe me, you are going to be dying.


You live, you die, you live again. In Gatlin', your main methods of problem solving are your eyes and learning from your mistakes. Upon dying, you are sent back to the start of the level to run through it again until you do it right.

I hear you asking, "What causes me to die?" That is an oddly-morbid question, but a question I will answer nonetheless. You'll die to classical art, you'll die to spikes, you'll die to weird demented clones, and you'll die to tears. By the way, that last thing is both figurative and literal.


The boss fights in Gatlin' are sentient bullet hells gone rogue. Fear not! They have patterns and tricks that you will likely get accustomed to.

Each boss also reveals c r i s p y lore and each boss harbors an unforgettable personality - so that's pretty neat I guess.


The endgame of Gatlin' is a distinctive twist on the existing gameplay. After the conclusion of the main story, level modifiers are unlocked. Want levels to be more difficult? We've got you covered. Imagine Hell itself. Good work. Now imagine Hell without gravity and now every surface is covered in soap. Get the picture?

Does Hell not sound appealing enough for you? Understandable, everyone's a critic. Instead, we offer a wide array of eccentric and ever-expanding levels, worlds, and challenges to partake in.


Gatlin' was and will always be designed with all types of player in mind. If you wish to go slow or fast, the level design panders to all. That said, we highly encourage speedrunning.

very challenging

This game is very challenging and hard to understand at first OK so I had a fun time with this game entry you brought everything forward and with some good feel to it most the elements you pushed on this was pretty good, I really enjoyed everything so great start to something really good here hope you keep that level of quality up, the use of color is nice the control system was confusing but still pretty fun of a game


This game is fun, but is very challenging. I don't want to criticize it or make it feel like it's your fault for my problems, because it's not. It's a good game, and even though it's difficult, I understand this game is meant to be challenging and may appeal to those who are probably better at it than I am. Anyway, good game, too hard for me, maybe I'll try to finish it later.

this game is gud
but so hard lol spikes are hard to navigate to me

Would rate higher but right clicking on mac is bs
EDIT: I mean jumping in the tutorial

dotcopycat responds:
