Use your powers and find your playstyle to survive in Boiling Bolt, an immersive and explosive shoot-em-up! Slow down the time to make combos and enjoy the stunning 3D graphics. Help June to save the world alone or with a friend.

Take on the waves of enemies coming to get you with your arsenal:

  • The Plasma Whip, short range attack dealing greater amounts of damage with the tip.
  • The Magnetic Field, a zone causing damage to nearby enemies.
  • The powerful Warp Launcher that creates black holes that attract your enemies before releasing a devastating explosion.
  • and more...

A long time ago, a war wrecked the world, leaving only islands, floating in the sky thanks to the strength of mysterious crystals. Life went back to its course, forgetting that bitter past. A millennium later, a strange woman attacked the city of Scire, putting an end to this fragile balance.

Play as June, a soldier struggling to defend her island against the evil threat. Her decisions will prove crucial for the outcome of this world in ruins.
