Cursorblade is a very short bullet hell game that puts you in the role of your mouse cursor. There are 6 different cursor characters you can play in total, and each character has two different achievements. The game takes just a couple hours to play, but at just $5 for the game, the value is there.
The game uses only the mouse for controls. You can upgrade your character with new weapons and items as you progress through the game. Although you can only use the mouse for controls, the game does allow combination moves.
Cursorblade aims to take the place of the 2022 bullet hell game Vampire Survivors, but instead of being dark and moody, the developer chose cute and cheerful.
The graphics in this game won’t leave you confusing reality for the game any time soon, but it makes up for it with ultra-cute graphics. The enemies are cute little slimes, that give a satisfying, bubble wrap style pop when you destroy them with your cursor weapon.
The graphics for the cursor are equally cute, if a little less colorful, and successfully turn your mouse into an appropriate looking hero.
Although it seems simple, Cursorblade actually requires some skill to play. Using the mouse only means learning a non-standard set of moves. Different mobs move in different ways, and can shoot bullets and other weaponry at the player.
There’s well over 50 different levels, which means although each round is short, there’s a lot of different moves to get used to. Once the player figures out the combinations, items and weapons that they like however, the game smooths out and isn’t as difficult to play.
Right now, the amount of content in the game is a little bit disappointing. The game is priced right for the lack of content, but the whole game can be played through in just a couple hours. Cursorblade is made by a solo-developer however, and it’s clear the developer is invested in the game.
There’s every reason to believe the developer will continue to add content to the game, making it richer and more engaging to play.
Overwhelmingly Positive Reviews
So far, players have made it clear they like the game. Cursorblade has received hundreds of reviews on Steam, the vast majority of them positive. Although there are a few complaints here and there, most about the shortness of the game, the vast majority of people find the game fun to play.
This is a cute and fun little bullet hell game. Although it isn’t the longest game at this time, the developer is constantly adding new content to make it better. The game is fairly priced right now for its current size, and the game offers some fun and unique gaming. Although there’s no real story, if you’re looking for a fun and satisfying game to entertain you for an evening, Cursorblade is a perfect solution.
