This is a rather long review, so if you want a short summary of why I recommend this game skip to Results and read from there.

Well it’s time for PuppyGames to shine with Ultratron. It is not the best game out there, but it’s by no means the worst.

Story:
Ultratron is a pretty simple game; you play a little robot that must defeat the many foes and their leaders ahead: Bellum, Lues, Leiunitas, and Letum. The protagonists’ goal in this epic is to get revenge for the fall of earth by the evil forces of robots. As you fight further through the epic campaign you defeat the evil leader robots that destroyed the great planet you knew to love.

Campaign:
There are forty main levels and with each level the enemies become slightly stronger, although not to the point where it forces you to select specific upgrades. The game isn’t too difficult and you can get through the first 39 levels without too much effort. As you progress through each subsection (10 levels) you must fight one boss and this creates a save, which you can reload and play even after creating the next save ten levels later. You only get one save for each ten levels; this means if you start again you will overwrite your previous character saves.

Gameplay:
Similar to Revenge of the Titans you cannot buy all the upgrades within the forty levels, before fighting the main boss. Your cash is limited and you must choose which upgrades you want and which ones you don’t. In order to take more hits you must purchase shields, which upon being hit you lose. This means some of your money goes back to buying defense mechanisms to make sure you do not die in one hit. Although, after fighting your way through the main 40 levels the campaign unlocks and allows you to keep playing. One major benefit to this game is that by clicking escape it saves your progress and quits. This means you can be half way between checkpoints and decide you want to take a break without losing a beat.

Results:
Ultratron is challenging and fun with a lot of variation between rounds because of the upgrade variety. Most of the achievements can be earned by playing the game only a short amount of time. If you ever played geometry wars this is a similar type of game. If you’re fan of arcade games that are in bird’s eye view and are arena shooters then this is the game for you.

Hints:
->To beat Letum you need to purchase the speed boost upgrade, preferably with Quantum Shift so you can run through his bullets. [I also beat him when playing with near maxed out bullet upgrade which made it a bit easier]
->If your find a turret from a spider drop you can pick the turret up and move it by not firing your main gun.
->By purchasing the droid level-up upgrade this will allow your droids to level up based on their kill count. This upgrade is only useful if you decide to not fire your blaster and let the droids level up. (I played a play-through using only the lowest level droid and even at level five and fully upgraded it still was weaker than my level two blaster).
->You will make your money back if you buy the dot slurper upgrades, as the benefit of the farther reach is incredibly notable.


Results:
I recommend this game. I personally wouldn't purchase it for $9.99, but if you're a fan of the genre then $9.99 is a good price. If you are not a fan of the genre and can get a coupon or it is on sale for about 75% off then this is a great buy. The game is entertaining and rather simple. It doesn’t require too much time to become good at and is fun to compete with against friends. The checkpoint system makes it rather entertaining and stops you from having to repeat the whole game over again.

Pros:
+Different upgrades which you cannot purchase all in one play through of the main forty levels.
+Checkpoint system, so you don’t have to restart at the beginning if you lost by just a hair.
+Easy controls with simple gameplay logic
+Simple enemies and fun to battle bosses
+High replay value
+Save and quit option allowing you to stop playing at any point without losing progress.

Cons:
-Some upgrades seem rather worthless.
-The final boss, Letum, is ridiculous in difficulty curve.
-There doesn't seem to be any tutorial or hints pages between levels.

A fun twinstick shooter similar to the classic games like Robotron.

It looks easy but gets harder later on.

I snagged it in a Humble Bundle, best $3 I spent in a long while.

This is a perfectly made Modern Retro Shooter from Puppy Games

It has a great retro arcade feel, it's addicting, beautifuly colourful, fast paced and the amazingly done upgrades and level advancement system will keep you playing this for a long time. One of the most fun games I've played for a while.

You will not regret buying this game, I give it a 9.5/10

Welcome to Ultratron! This game serves arcade style gaming well. It is a shooter sort of game where you shoot these bots and get power-ups. There are checkpoints each time you finish a boss and the game challenges you more and more with each new level. The arcade shooter noises are a definite plus because it will make any gamer fall in love. I recommend this game even more if it is on sale (I had a coupon). But furthermore, simply do youself a favor...and buy this game! BUY IT!

+ Nice Arcade Sounds
+ Spectacular Colors and Visuals
+ Challenging Levels
+ Lots of power-ups
- You should possibly wait until on sale/coupon.

Rating: 8/10

Inutile de jouer plus d'une heure pour se rendre compte qu'un jeu d'arcade basé sur un concept classique - du Arena Shooter - peut-être redoutable en raison de choix de game design solides et intelligents. Ainsi, entre chaque vague d'assauts ennemis - qui composent différents chapitres de plus en plus ardus - vous aurez la possibilité d'utiliser vous sous durement récoltés - étant libérés par les ennemis vaincus et très éphémères, c'est la mécanique classique risque/gain. Se pose alors le dilemme suivant : renforcera ton notre survie à court terme : achat de niveau bouclier (qui plus est, il est non linéaire, c'est-à-dire qu'en acheter beaucoup à chaque tour revient vite extrêmement cher), smartbombs (de plus en plus chères en fonction de la progression dans les chapitres) ou privilégeria-t-on l'investissement : améliorations du droïde principal, de ses équipements ou des droïdes auxiliaires.

Une fois dans l'arène, tout devient furieux : il faudra aussi gérer les "pets" (droïdes auxiliaires qui vous suivent et qui peuvent rester au sol s'ils sont touchés, dans ce cas il faudra aller les récupérer), le droïde de défense (immobile, il shoot dans la même direction que vous et dispose de votre puissance de feu et d'un bouclier limité) ou encore les power-ups à récupérer (leurs effets disparaissent en même temps que votre multiplicateur de score, c'est-à-dire une fois touché). Et si vous êtes du genre à trouver le genre arcade peu permissif, sachez qu'il est tout de même possible de sauvegarder à tout moment pour reprendre le jeu plus tard, de reprendre aux checkpoints créés après chaque début de chapitre ou même de jouer en coopération à deux. Je terminerai avec la bande-son dark-électro/club qui terriblement prenante ainsi que les visuels qui sont toujours aussi attractifs et propres à Puppy Games.
