The Earth was shattered and reduced to floating islands hanging on the power of their Crystal. Life went back to its course, forgetting that bitter past. A millennium later, you play June, a rebel soldier struggling to defend her island against an organization draining power out of the Crystals.
Boiling Bolt is a 2D scrolling shooter with some fairly pleasant 3D graphics. The gameplay is average for a game of its type. It's a bit different from most twin-stick shooters out there, seeing as your spaceship can move both ways and can shoot in either direction . The player controlled ship follows a strict spline, with anything on the screen beyond that being inaccessible. This track defines the playing area and layout of each level. One neat thing about this feature is that it changes frequently throughout every level, giving the gameplay a much needed sense of originality; sometimes, it even diverges into multiple splines. Even though the game only has five stages, you only get three credits with 2 lives each, so you should be careful to not die more than necessary (I know I wasn't at first). Thankfully, to help you have a smoother experience, you can upgrade all four of your secondary fire modes, as well as your main gun using modules that increase attack, defence and speed. You're also reminded of the game's difficulty in the multiple waves of enemies you'll have to face while trapped, on the way to the boss of a stage; the boss fights themselves can be quite challenging as well, considering the bosses attack patterns that can sometimes be pretty unpredictable and ruthless. Unfortunately, Boiling Bolt is not quite action-y or artsy enough to be memorable. Other than the aforementioned noticeable points, the game just doesn't provide enough excitement, even when the screen is full of bullets flying around. Your guns just don't quite pack enough punch to feel rewarding and enemies explode in a hardly noticeable, unsatisfying way. Even though the developers clearly tried to make the visuals stand out by differentiating each level a bit from the last, they ultimately failed, as clearly seen from the poor quality of some enemy designs and backgrounds There isn't really anything innately wrong with the game, but nothing really remarkable and special either. And that's the problem. It's a bit too much generic for my taste, with little originality or creative passion behind it. If you're up for an average scrolling shooter and have nothing better to do for a few hours, you can give it a go. You can even play with a friend, if you have any (that will be willing to also purchase the game). Otherwise, move along, nothing interesting to see here, folks.
Boiling Bolt is a great, very fun and challenging shoot'em up with arcade style gameplay and if you are a fan of this kinda games, there's lots of playability value int this game for you. The visuals and graphic effects are pretty nice and the game runs very smooth, without any hiccups or performance issues. the gameplay is fast paced with great action and there are varied environments with different types of enemies to test your reaction speed and skills.

Boiling Bolt is worthy title by the price and it has lots of actions and replayabilty value which can entertain you for hours.
