Análises

“The levels and characters are all fun to look at, and the whole world seems lush and alive.”
3.8/5 – Mash Those Buttons

“...the crass humor may not appeal to everyone, the sharp design and challenge that’s found in Ultionus will strike some kind of chord with anyone who initially play it and nostalgia withstanding.”
4/5 – Press Pause Radio

Sobre este jogo

Galactic hero Serena S has been trolled on Spacebook. This is obviously a cause to embark on an epic quest to punish the troll in question, who just happens to be The Space Prince. Guide Serena through 7 stages of shmup action, jumping, shooting, and yet decidedly more jumping and shooting to her ultimate goal of total testicular annihilation of her foe. Ultionus is a love-letter to the home computer arcade games of the late 80s and early 90s, particularly Halloween Harry, Astro Marine Corps, Duke Nukem 2 and especially Phantis/Game Over II. The game features tons of lovingly crafted pixel art, and a rockin' chiptune soundtrack by the legendary Jake 'Virt' Kaufman.

Simple shooter retro game. The story is too short, you can complete it within less than 30 minutes easily. The control has a few problem when you press "z" to shoot but nothing happen sometimes, I don't know it's only happen for me or not. A song of end credits is awesome, you should not skip it.

I recommend this game, but with a huge caveat. How much do you really enjoy retro platforming?

Everything about this game is very well done: graphics, the Heavy Metal magazine heroine, and the fantastic soundtrack. There's even a good bit of replay value, which isn't always the case for platformers. The gameplay is... well, "retro".

If you've never experienced actual older games, or you tend to forget how many of them actually sucked, I recommend watching a playthrough of a game called Phantis, which this game is basically a remake or spiritual sequel of. With some exceptions, older platforming games often had slow, sluggish protagonists, with fast, incessantly spawning enemies, with awkward jumping and shooting controls. This game is no exception.

Serena walks slowly. She has to stand still to shoot. There's a small delay both before and after firing the actual projectile. She can only shoot up at a shallow angle (perhaps 30 degrees), but not straight up. You get hurt from touching a robot's toe or a wizard's robe. Additionally, the delay in firing means that if you try shooting just before you land, you won't fire. Even her ship takes a moment to accelerate to full speed when moving up or down. None of these would be a huge problem by themselves, but combined, it can lead to some very frustrating moments.

Everything else about Ultionus is improved over the older games; why not tighten up the gameplay too? There are also plenty of other "retro" games that actually have really great controls.

As I'm sure most can agree, it's more fun to challenge the game, not its controls. But if you love punishing gameplay, repetition until perfection, or just love all platforming games, then it's hard to do wrong by Ultionus. Even better, it's very inexpensive.

This reminds me of the early 90's. And this also reminded me that i suck at videogames.

Definitely a Nintendo Hard game (at least on it's hardest setting)! Awesome little platformer that's done in the retro spirit of Amiga games. Reminded me of Lionheart.
Get this, if you like games like Volgarr the Viking, Spelunky, Rogue Legacy and such.

When I think of retro games, Ultionus stands out from the legions of super-hard "throwback" games like Super Meat Boy and Hotline Miami in the respect that it's (get this) actually fun to play.
...It's mindblowing! A challenging trial and error style action game that's FUN. Featuring a charming, brightly colored world with straightforward level designs, (ripped off from its fore-runner, Phantis, in places, but brightly colored and charming all the same) and bringing to the table a hilarious plot with extra funny perks for anyone who's ever wanted to reach through a computer and punch someone irritating. Gameplay takes some getting used to, but in Ultionus' case this is actually *beneficial* to the overall atmosphere; it *feels* like a game from the early 90's in the sense that getting to understand how to take advantage of the way the character moves and shoots, and exploiting the enemy AI's clumsiness, is actually part of the process of improving.
And I won't spoil the ending entirely, but will go on record as stating, it involved the heroine's foot and someone's balls.

Jogo com gráfico e sprites muito bem feitos ^^, muito legal visualmente, jogo muito variado !! Tendo de dinosauros como montaria, até naves espaciais no ínicio das fases, (achei bem engraçado o humor dos nomes da proezas, rsrsrs) Para quem gosta desse estilo de jogo, vai gostar muito de Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge.
