Wiesbaden, Germany - 23rd February, 2021. Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer SmokeStab are proud to show off today a brand new biome for their upcoming action-packed rogue-lite shooter, Orbital Bullet! In the “Jungle” biome, players will encounter all sorts of never-before-seen enemy types, weapons, and features in the game’s one-of-a-kind circular 360° platforming level design. Not only that, but the developers are inviting players to get in on the action by joining the official Orbital Bullet Discord and participating in the Alpha!

 

Orbital Bullet is a multi-award-winning action-platformer that takes the tried-and-true, highly-addictive rogue-lite formula and adds a unique twist with a 360° rotating level design. Players can expect fluid, fast-paced gameplay featuring procedurally generated enemies and level elements, with “instant-transmission” upon completion of a stage — keeping the rhythm going and the action flowing! Of course, it wouldn’t be a rogue-lite without a deep skill-tree, game-changing body modifications, upgrades, and of course, a diverse range of heavy-weaponry with which to dispatch the hordes of enemies keeping you from reaching the next level! 

 

In this latest trailer, players get a glimpse at the never-before-seen “Jungle” level, which sees our intrepid little space marine climbing the branches of a beautifully rendered digital Yggdrasil with lush foliage and plenty of bad guys to shoot.

Key Features of Orbital Bullet:

 
  • Nothing ‘Rosie’ About This Ring: A unique 2.5D ring-shaped world offers players a one-of-a-kind setting fresh for the genre with a rotating 360° level design
     

  • Bullets and Body Mods: It wouldn’t be a rogue-like without all sorts of nifty upgrades, mods, skill-trees, and heavy weapons to keep your sci-fi fustigator strapped and ready for action
     

  • Intense Arcade Action: A game that defines “one more run”, Orbital Bullet throws players into the fray with fierce, frenetic action. Jump, dodge, and of course, shoot your way through hordes of enemies as you wind your way around several beautiful and unique biomes
     

  • No Time to Relax: Instant level transitions upon completion of a stage keep the mayhem flowing and your trigger finger dialed; no more interrupting the rhythm with cutscenes or hub worlds!
