Rise & Shine is described as 'true "think and gun" that combines elements of arcade shooters, bullet hells, and puzzle platformers to create a new blend of strategy and viscera. Switch between Shine's add-ons to solve puzzles that redefine what bullets can do'. There are three games similar to Rise & Shine for a variety of platforms, including Android, Android Tablet, iPad, iPhone and Steam. The best alternative is Metal Slug. Other Rise & Shine like games are Guns, Gore & Cannoli (Paid) and The Bug Butcher (Paid).
The Bug Butcher is an intense action shooter, wrapped in stylistic 2D art, and smeared with humor where timing and fierce reflexes are paramount! The core mechanics hold old ties from the classic arcade shooter “Super Pang” where you shoot vertically, but with modern day twists.
