Level 99's Shoot-Em-Up Puzzle Board Game Bullet On Kickstarter

Level 99 Games has put out a new game on Kickstarter called Bullet. The game is a shoot-em-up-style, real-time puzzle game where players assume the role of heroines from magical-girl anime-style backgrounds and attempt to defeat their opponent with a variety of different types of weapons in each of their arsenals.

In Bullet, players will "assume the role of one of Earth's most powerful heroines as you settle disputes with excessive firepower." Additionally, "each heroine wields a different power that changes the game – master paper, gravity, guns, music, and more to defend the Earth! play in-real-time to form Patterns, clear your board, and attack! Fight back the bullet curtain coming at you each round and be the last Heroine standing to win!"
