Levels

There are 20 levels in Bullethead.

The level starts out with rockets falling from the sky. After a few seconds, four alien saucers come out from the side of the screen. When the alien saucers have been defeated, the rockets will continue to come down for a few more seconds, and then stop.

After the rockets stop falling, five more alien saucers will come out, and the rockets will begin to fall again. When the aliens are defeated, a big squad of ringed pink aliens will come from the top of the screen. A couple seconds after the pink aliens, flying rectangular blocks will come down.

When all the enemies have been defeated, a big wave of rockets come down all at once. Lastly, five more alien saucers will appear, and the level will end after they are all defeated.

Enemies

The Moon Apple Logo Incomplete section

This section is incomplete. You can help by adding the missing info.

  • Alien saucers - These are the first enemies encountered in Bullethead. The saucer is controlled by a two tentacled alien that shoots mini pink bullets.
  • Ringed pink aliens - These enemies are the second to be introduced in the game. They bounce off the walls and usually leave a pickup when shot down. They will sometimes come out of robotic squids.
  • Robotic squids- These will always come out of ball pods and bounce around the stage. Some will even spawn ringed pink aliens.
  • Smasher aliens- This enemy carries a giant block around as well as flying through the air. It will randomly drop it's block trying to isolate the player. The block itself can't be hurt by gun fire so the alien can only be shot after the box is dropped down. Both will blow up when the alien is shot. When the alien is destroyed it will always drop a double shot canister.

Hazards

This section is empty. You can help Nitrome Wiki by adding info.

Pick-ups

Main article: Canisters

Pick-ups in Bullethead are canisters that are occasionally dropped by enemies when they are destroyed. If a player touches them, pick-ups will cause the player to obtain a special ability for a short period of time. If a pick-up touches the ground, it will disappear after a few seconds.

Glitches

  • If the game is pause whiled a flying rectangular block is in the air, when the player goes back into the game the block would have already extended its knives.
  • If the player jumps and the level being played is completed, pressing space to advance to the next level will cause the game to be paused and the player to be positioned mid-air in the middle of the stage with their shadow visible on the ground.
  • If the player dies while the level being played is completed, manages to die, a "Game over" screen will be displayed along with a "Level complete" screen, although pressing space will cause player to proceed in the game.
  • If a brain controlled drill makes a hole as the player completes the level, when the next level starts the animation of a fallen soldier will play in all the holes present in the previous level.
