Heavy Bullets leaves an incredible first impression on the visual front. Polygons. As far as the eye can see -- or at least as far as the many walls that box your character in. Here is a game that is all about color -- but NOT texture. And the effect is intoxicating, at least for a while. Unfortunately, over the course of the game's levels, there are no changes to the main scheme. Of course, it's fallacy to judge something based on what it isn't, rather than what it is. And when it all comes down to it, Heavy Bullets is a visually cohesive game with excellent, simplistic monster designs and levels that make sense, despite being procedurally generated.
Retro. That's the best word I can use to describe Heavy Bullets' sonic assault on the player. It's a smorgasbord of lo-fidelity sound effects and borderline chiptune samples. Most of the time, you don't hear anything. But considering the speed and ferocity of the varmints infesting the mainframe, it's nice to have all your senses completely intact and distraction-free.
