A puzzle-flavored shoot-em-up game. Simple but polished and intense. The trailer gives a good sense for what you're getting, so all I really need to add is: Yes, it's as fun as it looks. The levels are short and sweet and sweet. Different stages alternate their focus between puzzles, speedy navigating, and shooting/dodging, so there's a nice feeling of variety. The shooting is pretty forgiving (your ship can take multiple hits) so extreme shmup skills aren't required. The real challenge comes in going for speed.

I've been playing this just about since it came out, and it's still the most well-balanced shooter I've played to date, and my absolute favourite of the genre.
I gotta say, this version appears to be a tiny bit harder than the other ones though, but it's still a welcome and highly doable challenge.

When i got this game i was expecting no more then a scrolling shooter game. But there are some very interesting and cool mechanics i haven't seen in any other game of the genre, its really more of a shooter/puzzle game. You need to fins out how to save the most survivors, kill the most badguys and finish the level in the quickest amount of time using very cool mechanics like boost (speeds up how fast the level scrolls) teleporting through walls and dropping telepods that allow you to travel back to a previous point in the level to get any survivors or secrets you may have missed. sure it's a short game at 50 levels that shouldnt take more then 1-3 minutes each but its very replayable and has medals and achivements and online scores to compare to. and they game works just as well with keyboard or controller (i like playing it with 360 controller) and despite it being cartoony and 2d everything looks great in the in game levels and the artwork for cutscenes. awesome lil game 9/10

The gift that just keeps on giving. Every time you think you've seen the last this game has to show you, out comes another ability from the bottomless box of tricks. After a fumbly start, you soon find yourself zipping and teleporting around the brilliantly designed levels like Nightcrawler or suhin'.

Velocity Ultra, a game made by Brighton based FuturLab. A wonderful gem of a game that I would recommend to anyone.

It's a speed running, bullet hell, collect-a-thon game. All it's asking you to do is save every single survivor on the map, dodge all the bullets from the vast number of enemies you might see on the screen at any one time and do it as fast as you can. Simple, right? Heck yeah but challenging as anything.

For those that wish to the play the game and go through all of the 50 levels the game offers will find a decent challenge in getting the medals needed to get the xp for the level unlocks on the later levels, with a difficulty curve that proves challenging enough to keep going at the game to want to see the next levels, rather than providing a challenge far too difficult for it's own liking. To those that wish to finish the game with everything at the highest standard whilst never dying on the levels, have fun. It's worthwhile, yet difficult.

Level design is intelligent, a natural progression of branching paths and strategic teleport placement over the entire map. It never ends up being the same over and over again either, offering different levels types one after the other, whether that be trying to complete levels that might require never letting go of your boost or making sure you have the hundreds of survivors safe and sound to the immense enemies you see. Fresh and always fun, FuturLab definitely hit the mark here.

There are many secrets and extras in this game as well, providing tons of replayability and curiosity to find everything for the completionists out there. All the awards/challenges on it's list are certainly challenging and worth the bragging rights.

For the speedrunners too, have fun with the leaderboards. It's always fun to get higher and higher on them to beat those you never thought you could.

There is only one issue I had with this game sadly and that is the short teleport system. It can be very VERY precise and will sometimes get you killed, meaning your perfect run is messed up by a VERY small offset in the marker's position in a small area. This was however, the only issue I actually found with the game. However, this might have just been me.

Overall, Velocity Ultra is an incredibly fun and enjoyable game that I have only just come to review after obtaining every single achievement in the game and completing it 100% beyond the achievements, including reaching the number 8 spot in the Master Leaderboards so I know what I'm talking about here. Fast paced, fresh, varied and always interesting, this game is something gamer's should try for the challenge, innovation and fun times that they will have with this.

9.5/10 FuturLab. Can't wait for your port of Velocity2X to arrive on Steam.

I am a big fan of games with Cartoon Style art in them, and this Game is absolutely amazing in that aspect. But not only does it have great graphics, the music is also amazing, and the game-play is well thought trough. Boosting and teleporting around the world work well and the loot you find helps you out quite a bit.

Would recommend this Game just for the Graphics and the Music alone.

Velocity Ultra is a different spaceship game. The focus here isn't to fight enemies, but solving puzzles and rescue survivors while you run against the clock. You have the ability to teleport, and this adds a nice and refreshing new mechanic to the genre. The controls take some time to get used, and it's a bit hard to master at the start, but with some practice you'll do well. It's important to say that this is not a bullet hell title. If you are looking for a completely new experience, you might give this game a try.

Velocity Ultra is amazing, it feels like an HD remake of an imaginative Amiga game, down to its soundtrack. Game got it all: puzzles, racing, shoot 'em up, super twitchy and incredible responsive controls.

It's worth a damn money!
Control's bit tricky at first, but very unique and addicting if you get use to it!
It's not bullet hell type game, but rather a Radiant Silvergun kinda of puzzle shooter.
Buy it! :D

To be fair, i bought the game in a bundle and therefore got it without actually wanting it. Still i am a huge fan of scroll shooters and tried it out.

In Velocity Ultra you try to rescue as many survivors as possible and finish the level as fast as you can to gain the maximum score.

While this is a different approach to the scroll shooter genre than the usual "kill everything", it doesnt seem to work very well. Even though all levels are different, they just feel the same, as all you do is collecting rescue pods that are hard to reach.

The fights feel really bad, as the opponets ships are all looking the same, are not animated and just feel wrong. They die in one shot and even though you get special weapons, its no difference as they are not fighting back. As the screenshots tell, this changes at some point, but the game was so boring that i couldnt make it to those levels without falling asleep.

The only challenge in this game comes from the high speed and the locations of the rescue pods that need to be collected.
A game that is about getting the best time and score, should offer scoreboards and allow the player to compete for the best time. However, in velocity ultra there is simply a maximum score you can get which totally desotroys the competition.


I recommend watching a couple of videos before hitting the "buy" button, as this is not the typical scroll shooter. As a huge fan of scroll shooters, I did not like this game at all.
