Bullet Hell Boss Rush Shooter Forsaken Woods Hits Android
A challenging new boss rush style bullet hell shooter that melds platforming and touch screen mechanics together by the name of Forsaken Woods has made its way onto Android. The brainchild of indie developer Bruzin Games, Forsaken Woods is a purposefully difficult hybrid shoot ’em up where players hunt down an eclectic cast of fantastical boss monsters that each come packing with their own array of over the top attack patterns that tend to turn most of the screen into a digital killzone. It’s up to players to defeat these abnormal woodland critters one by one with nothing but a quiver of arrows and their wits in order to make the forest safe again.
Players control a hooded hero by using on screen buttons to move, leap, and dash while tapping anywhere on the screen will cause an arrow to be let loose in that direction. Mastering the various bosses’ attack patterns and using brief openings to one’s advantage is key to survival as Forsaken Woods is a punishing game that doesn’t forgive mis-steps lightly. In addition each battle is measured with a detailed battle system geared towards perfectionists that gives players a grade on how well they did at the end. With its imaginative boss design and intense bullet hell gameplay Forsaken Woods is a great homage to the shooter genre fans will get a kick out of.
Forsaken Woods is free to download on Google Play.
