EBF Collection has been updated to version 1.9 on Steam: Added 2 more prototypes: The EBF4 Battle Demo and EBF3 Spell Animations. Added 3 handicap options to Bullet Heaven: 2x Foe Damage, 33% More Foe HP, and Speed Up Game. (this is essentially hard mode, best experienced in a new save file) Added the S+ and S++ ranks to Bullet Heaven, which require playing with two or three handicaps. (there are no achievements for this) Optimized the code in Bullet Heaven a little bit. Not sure how much it helps. Added an experimental “Alternative Rendering” option to Bullet Heaven. (might help if the game is running very poorly, but in most cases it will probably make performance worse) Optimized the code in Adventure Story somewhat, but didn’t find anything seriously wrong. Fixed Adventure Story crashing if it can’t create save data. Fixed Medal pop-ups occasionally being stuck on-screen in Cat Cafe. Fixed not being able to delete the new EBF2 achievements in the launcher.
If Bullet Heaven and Adventure Story are running poorly for you, I’d appreciate some feedback on the following: Which parts of the games run slowly? Does restarting the game help? Does lowering the Window/Fullscreen resolution help? Does lowering the Quality/anti-aliasing and other graphics settings help?
I’m currently not sure if there’s a memory leak, or if it’s some specific animations that are causing issues – the more information you can give me, the better.
If you’ve missed any of the previous updates, please read through the announcements on Steam! A decent amount of content has been added since launch.
The EBF Collection includes Epic Battle Fantasy, Epic Battle Fantasy 2, Bullet Heaven, Adventure Story, Brawl Royale, Mecha Dress Up, The Kitten Game, Cat Cafe, a bunch of prototype games and artwork, and a whopping 150 Steam achievements!
All of the games have been updated with quality-of-life features, such as volume controls, new difficulty options, and other cool stuff. Adventure Story has a bunch of new levels, Bullet Heaven has new playable characters, and Epic Battle Fantasy 2 has new unlockable upgrades!
On top of all that, the 65-track soundtrack is included as a free DLC download!
The game is $8, but there’s a 20% launch discount that will be active for one week. It’s also part of the EBF Bundle, which means you can get another 20% off if you buy it with the other EBF games (or already own the rest). EBF4, EBF5 and Bullet Heaven 2 will also be on sale for a week – so it’s a good chance to grab the whole series.
If you are a Mac or a Linux user,you can buy the game on Itch.io – the launcher only works on Windows, but the individual games can be opened in a Flashplayer of your choice (there’s one included in the download section).
