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!
