Not many Android device users know of bullet hell games, a very unique subgenre in gaming. These games still have shooting mechanics, but they take the fun of shooting and reverse it swiftly on the player.
The point of bullet hell games is to dodge bullets that fly at you while you make great attempts to kill off the bad guys. This makes bullet hell games – also referred to as “Shoot ’em up,” “Danmaku,” “manic shooter,” and STG – somewhat different from the average shooting game on the Android platform.
And as it turns out, there are several small selections of bullet hell games on Android. Here are some of the best bullet hell games you can try out:
