Bleed scratches an itch that the Mega Man Zero series use to for me. It hit all the high notes of the genre perfectly too. Well designed boss encounters that make great use of the game mechanics. The ability to deflect incoming fire and cut dudes with a sword is always super satisfying. Any side scroller with a sweet train level is always good in my book. The game is short and the price is more than fair.
Bleed is easily one of my favorite indie games now, up there with Cave Story and Suguri. You can tell it's made by someone that loves this kind of game, and aren't just doing another 2D "retro" indie game. I hope this game does well, I had a dumb grin the whole time playing it.
Bleed is an impressive indie action platformer game that takes notes from Devil May Cry, Max Payne, Cave Story, and much more. The musical tracks are wonderful and the art style is a nice call back to retro gaming. The gameplay is highly addictive and pretty fun overall.
Bleed is quite possibly the best run and gun shooter I have ever played. Using bullet time to manage triple jumps works and feels wonderful from the first time an enemy barrage is flown over. Even the more insulting death messages managed to make me laugh.
This is another game I'd be playing right now if my pile of shame wasn't quite so high. It's one of my top games of 2013.
