"Intricately designed shmup about a teleporting mechanic with quite a few challenges to master. Very polished and lots of fun."

Ce spun criticii

“Ikaruga meets Portal”
Keza MacDonald, IGN

“This is a remarkable shmup and should appeal even to those who don’t like games of the genre.”
Chris Priestman, Indie Statik

Super Cool!
Jump on it Kee-Moe-Sabee!
Hybrid Shmupuzzle game.
A perfect tool for getting used to driving future teleportation vehicles.
It is never too early to start learning.
Very cool retro arcade action man.
Got this game with a coupon.
It was 90% off. One dollar.
Velocity Ultra is worth more for sure.

Before modern day "shooters" existed, the term "shooter" referred to games in which the singular player (or occastionally multiple players) destroys hordes of enemies whilst dodging attacks. The player usually takes control of an aircraft (or spacecraft) to do this, and today, we define this sub-genre as the "Schmup" (shoot-em-up). These games were such a staple of gaming's earlier developments that you can see thier DNA now infused with many modern games. The problem is that the more pure form of vertical and horizontal scrolling shooters doesn't seem to surface very often anymore. The more recent release of Radiant Silvergun in the x-box live marketplace makes up for some of this, but the modern shoot-em up world is still barren!

Enter Velocity Ultra-- possibly the most clever evolution of the classic shooter genre, since Ikaruga. This game takes the conventional shoot-em-up, adds an excellent teleportation system, throws you into it's more than fifty mini-playgrounds,
and challenges you to adapt to them while meeting certain requirements. Those that find an affinity with this game, as I have, won't be able to stop until they've gotten a gold medal in every stage.

The graphics are more than adequate, and have a consistent style to them that doesn't confuse the eyes or get in the way of the gameplay mechanic. The comic-like art in between missions is fun to look at, and serves as a throwback to the "barely-there" style of storytelling that most shoot-em-ups adhere to. Why tease the player with too much story when all that'll be needed is very twitchy hands? The comic-frames more than suffice. Music is above average techno (I understand that electronic music consists of multiple sub-generes, but "techno" seems to fit the profile here), and carries the game's pace nicely. Controls are fluid and responsive, with only the occasional failed teleportation to make the player question his or her controller. And even then, practice makes perfect is the bread & butter of this game, and evidences it's tight gameplay. I'm curious as to how the controls feel in the Vita original, and I'm even more curious to see how curve studios might integrate the teleportation controls in to IOS, or other mobile devices.

Buy this game. It's an evolution of one of the most classic genres of video gaming, and it does what it does very well. The price is certainly right, and we need to encourage more development of games in this genre! Oh, and did I mention the game has a built in calculator, as well as the game Mine-sweeper? Does this enhance the experience? No! Is it awesome? Yes!

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.

Full video review:

Shmups has been a genre of little innovation over the years; we see the same renditions every year with slightly more enemies, new tilesets and new gun types. The folks over at Futurlab have tried to innovate on this style of game with much success. It stays true to the roots of a Shmup while experimenting with things such as acceleration and teleportation.

Now while these innovations change how the game plays, it doesn't mean it'll suit everyone. Personally I suffer from motion sickness in some games, games such as Battlefield and Hotline Miami are prime examples, with either narrow FOV or with large amounts of moving elements. Velocity Ultra suffers from the latter, with the addition of acceleration you'll be jumping between snail crawling speeds to being able to do the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs. This is worsened by the quite zoomed in nature of the game and how you're encouraged to use your blink ability ASAP which causes you to move to the top of the screen, only seconds later being forced to draw back, these jumps up and down across the screen are the main offenders to motion sickness. Narrow game sections are a similar affair, with sometimes 70%+ of the screen being covered in repeating tilesets.

Now if you're not a panzy like myself and can actually play more than 5 minutes without having to take a break you'll love this game, and I can say that to people who may not even be Shmup fans. It innovates enough that it can appeal to a large audience while still being a Shmup at its core with hundreds of enemies, online leaderboards and multiple weapon types. It features a great soundtrack and the cutscene art is a favourite of mine, the style it's done in is breathtaking using a small palette of green, blue and red with thick outlines is a sight for sore eyes.

The game controls well and supports keyboard + gamepad, runs at 60FPS which is always nice to see. Options while somewhat limited should not be an issue as this game seems to run well on nearly every setup. Only major complaint would be the lack of audio sliders and maybe an ability to zoom out further (though that could make certain teleportation segments slightly easier).

Check this game out it's worth the money, has lots of cool interesting things which I haven't seen in a Shmup. It's just a shame that this will be a game I won't be able to fully enjoy because of the constant acceleration and teleportation.
