Bulletrisk for iOS: The game where scoring can be deadly

Bulletrisk in an old-school shooter with a difference: Your ship doesnrsquo;t fire any bullets! Instead, you must tap the top panel to score, which sends bullets down the screen towards your ship with each tap. The more you score, the more you risk destroying your own ship. Can you last for 60 seconds and find the perfect Bulletrisk?

The mesmerizing gameplay of Bulletrisk is unique in that it is only as difficult as the player makes it. Sure, you could just score 100 points and spend the next 59 seconds doing nothing, but that wonrsquo;t make your score the envy of your friends. Instead, send a barrage of bullets down the screen, dodging them all by a single pixel (theyrsquo;re tiny) and score millions of pointshellip; if you can!

Bulletrisk has been developed solely by Justin Towell, who built the game from scratch using free game creation software GameSaladtrade; ( www.gamesalad.com). Justin also created side-scrolling platformer Squeakrsquo;s Dreams, which holds a 5-star rating in the UK App Store at the time of writing.

Bulletrisk features:
