Super Bullet Break is a card battler dressed up as a gotcha game. You collect characters (bullets) who each have abilities like shoot, heal or shield and these bullets require something in order to be cast, like sacrificing a bullet, etc. It’s a game that started off strong with a cool story, Excellent pixel art, and generally alright gameplay but I soon tired of the grind and it never really got going for me.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
