About

In Dead Bits, everything, from the environment to enemies, is entirely made of cubes. The game is intentionally made with extremely minimalistic graphics and simplest textures, and is set to dubstep music. Visually, Dead Bits somewhat reminds Minecraft, but gameplay-wise, it’s a combination of the first-person shooter with platforming elements.
The protagonist named Quilly was kidnapped by the aliens led by Quanton. Quilly has to complete a series of tests for Quanton before he is released. The “tests” actually consist of short levels in which you fight zombies and giant humanoid robots made of boxes. The protagonist starts each level armed with either a gun, an iron stick, or even nothing at all at some levels where you have to find the weapons yourself. Most levels are set on the platforms floating in the middle of nowhere, though there’s also a claustrophobic corridor level with limited visibility. Outside of the cutscenes, there’s no character model. Quilly has no visible legs and casts no shadow, which makes navigating the platforms way more difficult than one might expect. Each Quilly’s death is followed by a cutscene that cannot be skipped.

Dead Bits reviews and comments

Translated by

What a stupid Game-Looks more like a programming exercise Than a finished Game. The Graphics are just Cubes and the Opponents stomp on you with a crunker. At Least the Soundtrack is a little appropriate. Luckily, I Only paid 34 Cents for it, it's not worth more.

I like the Graphics in themselves, only partly a bit of a nice Level. But the Block Design is nice. The Sound is not the best. There are only 4 Weapons: MP, Shotgun, Laser Weapon and Baseball Bat. It is nice that you can see the Life of the Opponents, which is displayed in Points. Overall, you can see it to the Game that it is from Greenlight or from no better Known company like EA, Ubisoft, Activision, Bethesda etc. Level 7 out of 9 gets you a bit of Eye Cancer. A First-person Shooter with Platformer elements Bugs as written by others, I haven't seen any. For the current Price ok, at the few Levels that the Game has.

Dead Bits is a Shooter with Platform elements. Graphic The Graphic in Deadbits is minimalist. Pretty much everything is made up Of blocks and remind something of Minecraft, except that all Blocks are only one Color but are not pixelated. Soundtrack The Soundtrack actually consists of Dubstep throughout. If you don't like the Genre, you should leave your Fingers off the Game or mute and run other Music in the Background. Gameplay The Gameplay in Deadbits is one thing above all else: Spartan. You have 4 Weapons, all of which are different, about 2 Types of Enemies with Variations, infinite Ammunition and no Recoil to the Weapons. The Levels are varied, but There are hardly any Innovations in terms of Gameplay technology. So the first Levels are classic First-person shooter levels, later become more and more Platformers with Shooter Elements, some of which reach a considerable length and have no Checkpoints, which sometimes fruits really when you are due to an Error in the Physics engine ( You jump on a Platform, the Char jumps right on) falls from a Platform to your death and you don't land directly at the Level catch but first You get a (luckily) skipable GameOversequence, a Loading Screen and the Level Selection behind you. My personal Wish List to the Developers for the Game:-Level Editor-Fix of the Jump bug-Checkpoints-evtl Onlinmode-more Gameplay like Recoil, limited Ammunition etc Fazit Dead bits is not in itself a really bad Game, but there are some Things missing. It seems to me like it's the first Game the Maker has ever developed. But it would provide a Solid Foundation to make it a good game. Positive me doesn't think of what you might call ^^ "Negatively annoying Bug when Jumping on Platforms sometimes really lovelessly designed levels don't have Checkpoints
