Kuraattoreiden suosittelema

"...a 2D platformer that features gorgeous pixel art by Andrew Bado (Legend of Iya) and an aurally-pleasing soundtrack by chiptune composer Jake Kaufman."

“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

Tietoja pelistä

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.

Mixed reception my bottom.

Much better than I expected based on the negative comments and the cheesy / gross / awesome cover art. I'm a bit baffled that this didn't land a better reception, but maybe its target is too niche--too old school, what with the not-being-able-to-move-and-shoot-while-hordes-of-enemies-fart-nightmare-storms-all-over-the-screen gameplay.

Or maybe the combination of bad timing, artwork that is either grossly sexist or a poorly-explained homage, and an unattractive title did it no favors. (If the advertising focused more on the humour's self-awareness, I feel like some of these wouldn't have been interpreted so negatively.)

It looks (fantastic!) and feels like an old PC platformer you'd find before DOOM came out. It's only about an hour long, so if you can get over the difficult control hurdle and like the old platformers, I absolutely recommend Ultionus.

The pixel art and soundtrack are worth admiring, as well. :-)

I tried this because we're playing some of the soundtrack on my show. The music (by Jake Kaufman) is excellent. The game itself is quite awful. Control and movement feel archaic and make combat a chore. Boss battles show a hint of promise but are largely trial-and-error. Various depictions of the heroine throughout the game are pretty tasteless.

I ended up playing through the entire thing because I'm stubborn and also because I hoped it might evolve or improve, but it did not. Thankfully, it's mercifully short. If you're interested in a retro platformer with some challenge, I recommend you just buy the soundtrack to this and play Rex Rocket instead.

Great pixel art, great music, challenging gameplay, and you get to fight flowers.

Why does this game have a "Mixed" rating again?

The music and art are all fantastic. It would be so good if you didn't fire so slowly and move so slowly and all that stuff. It's... sad. Really sad.

One of the best "retro-done-right" games I've had the joy to play. You can tell the dev really has a passion for this creation. The artwork, music and attention to detail are off the scale. I can see this game going over some 'modern gamers' heads, missing the point altogether.

Definitely Worth it. Part 2 when?
