I won’t mince words: the first two Heartomics games were bad.
When I was asked to review “Heartomics: Lost Count“, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was nothing in common between it and the previous two gamers, aside from the title.
Unlike its predecessors, Heartomics: Lost Count is a bullet hell game, in the same vein as the Gundemonium games o
- Gameplay delivers as promised. As far as difficulty goes, it’s a pretty decent bullet hell for beginners.
- The story is told through manga panels, which is an underused and engaging tactic.
- Gimmick: you get lewd CGs as a reward for clearing stages.
- Only one character, and one shot pattern.
- The graphics, sprites and interface could do with more polish. Heartomics resembles the flash games of the early 2000s – it doesn’t look as professional as it could be.
Overall, if you can get past the visuals, Heartomics: Lost Counts marks a huge improvement in quality for this dev, and a fun little bullet hell game for fans of the genre.
