BLUE REVOLVER is a fresh new manic shooter for PC, OS X and Linux - inspired by the greats of CAVE and Raizing, and featuring the rabbit-eared technical genius "Mae" on the run from the forces of maniac environmental police "Blue Revolver" ☆ Fight through hordes of popcorn enemies, punch through blockades of big baddies and weave through frantic bullet patterns - and do all the above with a flourish for a high score!
This is a 3-stage demo, and not representative of the final product ★ Everything you see, hear and shoot in this release is subject to tweaks, change or programmer tantrums ☆ While there's a lot to get your teeth into here, the full game will feature 5 stages, a daily challenge mode, a hard-as-nails Parallel mode and more!

How to Play
- Default controls are WASDJKL; or arrow keys + ZXCV.
- Fire your guns with J/Z, or hold it down for focused fire.
- Use your special weapon with K/X. There are 4 different special weapons in this demo :
- OFFENSE types are simple to use and powerful enough to clear out difficult enemies.
- DEFENSE types pay a heavy cost in ammo efficiency, but can guard you from enemy bullets for a little while.
- FINESSE types are more difficult to use, but feature excellent ammo efficiency.
- If your hand gets tired, autofire can be used with L or C...
- In a pinch, deploy a smart bomb with V or semicolon! In Normal mode, the smart bomb is deployed for you - concentrate on dodging!
- woof, Comic-Z (art)
- danbo (code)
- Momobako, Akinola (announcer VA)
- Qygen, Novaturtle (music)

- Windows users should extract and run the exe.
- OS X users should extract and run the app.
- There is now an experimental build for Linux users that shouldn't require you to install anything! Just extract and run the .sh file. (Ubuntu 12.04+, Fedora 20+, Linux Mint 13+, openSUSE 13.1+)
- If that doesn't work, install the LOVE2D runtime and use it to run the .love file. Please note, you need version 0.9.2 - package managers might have outdated versions.
