All these first-person shooters today, spraying their bullets across the battlefield, never picking them up when they're done firing. So wasteful! Thank goodness developer Terri Vellmann and publisher Devolver Digital are releasing Heavy Bullets, a PC game that teaches players the value of recycling ammunition.
Heavy Bullets transports players into a low-poly, intensely neon maze full of dangerous enemies, power-ups and bosses. Your goal is to reach the end of Level 8 and reset the security mainframe. You begin each attempt with a special revolver and six bullets which must be picked up and reloaded after they've been fired at an enemy. It's like our mothers always said: "Don't you just leave those bullets on the ground. Those are perfectly good bullets, young man."
Bullets aren't your only option, though; homing bombs, coin magnets and high heels are all up for grabs to help you on your quest to be the most environmentally-conscious master blaster this side of the game grid. Heavy Bullets' world is also procedurally generated, making each run different.
Heavy Bullets is available via Steam Early Access and the Humble Store for $10, though both storefronts are holding 15 percent off sales, making it $8.49 for the moment.
