Level 99 Games’ latest release translates the excitement of modern video games back to their tabletop roots.
ALBUQUERQUE, NM, October 05, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — Level 99 Games, a tabletop game publishing company, today announced the upcoming release of Bullet Star (stylized as Bullet★) and has made the game available for pre-purchase on their online store.
Against the background of a growing renaissance of tabletop games, Level 99 Games aims to translate the excitement of modern video games back to its tabletop roots, and Bullet Star is their latest project in this endeavor.
Bullet Star is a board game inspired by the popular Shoot-em-up (SHMUP) and Match-3 subgenres of video games. In the game, players simultaneously arrange incoming bullet discs to form patterns and send more bullets to their opponents while trying to avoid being overwhelmed. Players may play against one another, or join forces to take on one of eight bosses in cooperative mode.
Following up on the success of Bullet Heart (stylized as Bullet♥︎), which was delivered and sold out earlier this year, Bullet Star introduces 8 new playable characters and bosses. It can be played alone or combined with Bullet Heart. The new game will also be accompanied by a reprint of Bullet Heart, as well as a standalone deluxe upgrade which can be used to add premium components to either Bullet Star or Bullet Heart.
Players who pre-order the game in the Level 99 Store will receive a download of the game’s high-energy soundtrack—which can also be used as a timer for play—as well as reduced-cost international shipping in most places around the world.
D. Brad Talton Jr, the president of Level 99 Games said “We’re very proud to be building upon the success of Bullet Heart, and bringing a new dimension of video-game-board-games to players all around the world. We hope that Bullet Star brings fun and excitement to your table.”
Bullet Star is available for pre-order in the Level 99 Store (https://www.level99games.com/bullet), priced at $39.99. The retail release of Bullet Star is scheduled for May 2022, marking the first anniversary of Bullet Heart’s release.
The game will also be available at a later date from partnered publishers in Korean (via publisher Delight), Chinese (via publisher Banana Games), and Japanese (via publisher Asobition), with other international editions coming soon.
