Bleed starts us out with Wryn, her trusty dual pistols and a rocket launcher but she'll have at least a dozen different weapons at her disposal by the end. I mostly stuck with her dual pistols because they are powerful, fast, and simple to aim but weapons like the shotgun, homing missiles, and katana all came in handy in certain situations.
Bleed's levels are short, diverse, and meant to be played multiple times. You'll spend time killing enemy forces on top of a moving train, underground, and even inside a dragon! Within the levels, you'll go through a few screens of smaller enemies and then usually reach a midpoint boss that you'll have to dispatch. After that, you'll usually have a few more areas with smaller enemies before you reach the level's final boss. For the record, most levels take around five minutes to complete.
