BERO Games has announced the official release of Buxicution, a fast-paced bullet hell game on mobile. Out now on Google Play, the pixel art title features a top-down orientation on top of circuit boards where players take the form of an energy ball on a quest to eliminate bugs.

In Buxicution, players embark on a noble mission to become the ultimate BUXICUTOR. Energy can be used for offense or defense - players can either use shields to protect themselves from incoming fire or blast away at enemies to clear a path.

Energy is, of course, expendable, so players have to strategise the best and most efficient use of their resources to make it through each level. The thing is that energy also acts as the HP of the player, so running out of it means it's Game Over.

There are five levels with plenty of challenges with different enemy types. Bomb Spiders are pesky nuances that spawn continuously as long as there are other threats around, while Sniper Bugs lock on and target the player with a nasty laser beam. Turrets, on the other hand, fire bullets constantly to hinder a player's movement around the circuit board.

There's a big boss fight too, and you'll have to play the game to see if you're up for the challenge. You can have a look at the embedded trailer above to get a feel of the gameplay. If you're eager to give the game a go, Buxicution is available to download on the Google Play Store for Android devices as a free-to-play game with ads.
