Enter the Deadly World of Bullet Hell Games

Frustrating difficult and almost impossible to beat, yes I am talking about bullet-hell shooters. Cool powerups, extremely difficult levels, tough bosses and fun gameplay with good replay value makes this a pretty awesome genre. Here is a list of top 27 bullet hell shooters. Pick your poison and have some fun.

27. Sine Mora

Chaotic gameplay and a lot of explosions.

Sine Mora is a horizontal 2d bullet hell shooter with lots of 3d elements. The player controls a plane and tries to blast his way through a seemingly endless horde of enemies.

The huge bosses look even better in 3d

The level design has a great emphasis on 3d environments; the levels look cool and feel great. The player doesn’t have a health bar, instead a timer runs on screen. If the player kills an enemy extra seconds are awarded and if the player takes a hit some time is deducted from the timer. The game goes on until the timer reaches zero.

The bigger they are the harder they fall.

The game features a cool gameplay mechanic which lets you slow down time for a few moments. This eases down the difficulty but is not reliable. The game also features an interestingstoryline, a father plans to overthrow an evil empire which is responsible for the death of his son while another story blends in with the last survivors of the Enkie race also plotting revenge on the Empire for destroying them.The emphasis on a complex story is great considering the genre.
