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

Reviews

“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

Über dieses Spiel

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.

I love the style and look of the game! It's fun, but the fatal flaw is that every time you shoot, she stops for a split second. You can't actually move and shoot at the same time. Combine this with infinitely spawning enemies, and you're constantly having to stop and shoot, stop and shoot, stop and shoot... it gets a bit monotonous.

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.

We all know there are a billion side-scrolling shoot'em up platformers out there.

Why does this one stand out from all the Others? Effort.
Effort made those fantastic retro style graphics.
Effort made the awesome chip tune music.
Effort is what will lead you to victory over the challenges this game has to offer.

It's a game that hearkens back to the days of when developers really cared about what they made.
When games weren't created to line the pockets of publishers.
When games were just... games.
It's a game with soul... A sexy soul.

If you want to appreciate a classically inspired shooter from the second dimension, buy this now!
Please support this title and the creators.

Das Spiel ist scheint unfertig und hat bugs. Wenn man auf Schwierigkeitsgrad "Easy" im ersten Level bei dem "Bossmonster" im Form einer Pflanze stirbt, dann gibt es einen respawn...aber die Spielfigur ist nicht mehr sichtbar, oder sie spawnt mitten im Boden und man hängt fest, kann sich nicht mehr bewegen... und somit unspielbar. Eine arme Leistung der Programmierer bei solch einem anspruchlosen "Retro"-Game. Einmal ist meine Spielfigur im Anfangslevel in Hüfthöhe in der Landschaft hängen geblieben. Da half auch kein hüpfen mehr. Also: Spiel neu starten.
Momentan totaler Dreck.
Falls es ein update gibt, werde ich prüfen ob der bug noch existiert.
Solange gibt es keine Empfehlung das Spiel zu kaufen.

Eine weitere Metastase dieser Spiele, die durch unfaires Design und miese Steuerung versuchen "hart" zu sein.
