About

Blasters of the Universe is the first of its kind, bringing the bullet hell genre into first person VR. Build a bad-ass gun from thousands of combinations then get ready to duck and dodge your way through a shit-ton of bullets in this nostalgic – and nerve-wracking – VR Bullet Hell shooter for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.



You'll need to physically duck, dodge, twist, and turn your way through hundreds of bullets. We scale the action dynamically to make use of the space you have available, so the more you move around the better!

Like in a traditional bullet hell game, the key to success is finding the 'sweet spot' to be in while the onslaught of bullets flies toward you. The only thing that can take damage in Blasters is your head. When you see a circle of bullets, often the best thing to do is to keep your head right in the middle and let the bullets breeze right by you.

You can also block bullets with your shield as a last resort, but it's impossible to block everything. Avoidance is the best strategy, so start moving around your play-space and dodge those bullets!



You will encounter a variety of enemies within Blasters that you need to dispatch. From fast moving ground enemies, to agile flying enemies, and deadly lumbering tanks. Each enemy will pose a different threat level to you, so you'll need to quickly identify what enemies are the most important to destroy first.



Blasters of the Universe features a 4 level Campaign for you to battle through, each ending with an epic boss battle. In each level, you'll battle new enemies, unlock new weapon parts and shields, and work your way towards glory. Each level also features an Endless Mode where you can fight for a high score on the leaderboards.



As you progress through the levels, you'll unlock new weapon parts to take into battle. You can build a custom weapon that suits your play style and the challenges you face. Want a super-fast firing hit-scan weapon that deals poison damage to enemies? No problem. What about a scatter-shot cannon that deals explosive damage and arcs shots towards nearby enemies? Can do. With tens of thousands of unique combinations to choose from, you have the ability to create a weapon that perfectly suits your style.



The Frame is the core of every gun. Each Frame in Blasters has a unique special ability that you can unleash to deal devastation to the enemies attacking you and help turn the tides during an intense battle.

These specials range from a bad-ass giant laser that melts anything it hits to a time-bubble that slows everything down and gives you the upper hand for dodging incoming bullets. Each special is unique and has different strengths that you can use to your advantage.



Constantly updating Challenge modes with unique gameplay ensure there is something new and exciting to play every day. Compete for the top score in Time Attack, Endless, and Speed-run challenges that push you to play in unique and difficult ways.

Early Access Review update : Its awesome get it!!! 10/10 for a EA game get it to support this game. Its a perfect mixture of Xortex and Space Pirate Trainer. features -leaderboards -lots of weapon mods -funny commentator (please let him say more stuff) - destructable environment (not fully, but better than nothing) - shild can break if it is used to often (that makes the game more active, i like that) -there will be bosses( not yet) -sexy update made the game more... sexy -feels like you are in an atari game negative stuff so far -the musik could need more base -i tried to find more but i couldnt... Get it to support the devs if you are into Games like Xortex and Space Pirate Trainer!

Product received for free Early Access Review I'm not very into wave shooters, I owned some as any first Vive user, so I didn't considered Blaster of the Universe a title to buy. I kindly received a key from a friend, I bet in a giveaway on reddit, so I tried the game with almost no expectations and a low interest. What a nice surpise! The graphical style is peculiar with emphatized vectorial elements, weird geometric weapons and vivid colors: the overall feel is very arcadey so frantic but with some quality on it. I've read a review than said this look amateur, I don't know if this game changed a lot from the start and grow, it looks extremely polished to me. The game actually is a wave shooter, but is quite tactical and require lot of prediction. Blasters use slow bullets in a way than remind me a lot the great tradition of vertical shoot'em ups, this force you to move A LOT using fully roomscale capabilities with some Matrix style leanings. For this reason, I find this game more enjoyable than most wave stuff and and an healty workout too. It seems to include unlockable stuff (I've seen a campaign button and another evnironment) and offers also a lot of customizable items for your weapon and your shield. To be honest, the fact those customization are all avaliable from the first minute sounds like a bad idea to me, people love to win stuff. Can't say about longevity, in this kind of games it's very relative to your interest.
