Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition

Since releasing Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition in 2015 I have been collecting anonymous player data from PC players - notably when and where they’ve died.

I decided to parse all of this death data and build a heatmap to show where players are dying the most in the game. The results are pretty interesting, so I wanted to share them with anyone who might get a kick out of this sort of data.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • This will 100% spoil the entirety of the game! If you haven’t finished the game yet, and plan to, maybe not look at this yet? Or only come back if you’re totally stuck?
  • At the time of this writing, I have 11100 deaths since the game launched.
  • I had not expected to add another character to the game, so these deaths do not show which character was being played - which is a shame. I would have liked to see that data.
  • While I DO have data on the exact time and unique session each death occurred, this is not factored into the display below - I considered building a sort of time-lapse to see each player struggling to get past a stage, but this would take a lot of work… let me know if it’s something you’d like me to add!
