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.
