Críticas

“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

Acerca de este juego

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.

One of the first games I bought on Steam. And, at first, I was put off by the control scheme. But after almost two years I thought "what the hell", returned to the game and completed it on Easy difficuly first, and then on Normal with Good ending.

I must say that this game should be seen primarily as work of art and not as something intended to "play" with. The art has to be consumed, and to do that, you have to learn keystrokes using try-and-repeat method. When it becomes almost automatic, you can concentrate on music, sprites and spectacular backgrounds. Which, in turn, makes completion of the game very satisfying.

I want to thank the author, I will definitely buy his other game, Mystic Belle, and I will look forward for more titles from Lost Dimension. Keep on both doing the great work and having the fun!

BTW, to the guys who complain that character can't move and shoot at the same time: you can shoot during the jumps as much as you want, and, as a bonus, jumping intead of walking allows you to survive longer.

- GRÁFICOS: Pixel art de gran calidad, tanto en las animaciones como en el diseño. El juego sigue un estilo retro, inspirado en el original de 1987.

- SONIDO: Banda sonora impresionante. Lo mejor del juego, de hecho debería poner esto en primer lugar. Los efectos son apropiados.

- JUGABILIDAD: el juego no pretende ser un shooter plataformero desquiciado ya que el desarrollador se ha preocupado por mantener el ritmo y el espíritu de la versión original, tanto en jugabilidad, como en niveles y enemigos. Si acaso se ha permitido darle un lavado de cara y unos cuantos detalles para mejorarlo y hacerlo más grande, pero de algún modo, se mantiene fiel a la idea original.
A mí personalmente me ha llevado 5 horas terminarlo y obtener todos los logros. Tampoco es un juego excesivamente difícil, si bien la dificultad se puede regular.

- TRAMA: No os llevéis a engaño, no es un juego machista, en realidad este juego cuenta la historia de una mujer le patea el ♥♥♥♥ a un machirulo.

Resumiendo:
Gran homenaje al Phantis, muy grande. Este juego trae la remasterización con estilo 16 bits que nunca se hizo del original de Dinamic. Cómpralo, si te pasaste el clásico de los 80 o te gusta lo retro, no te decepcionará en absoluto.

Here's a hint for the developer: when aiming for a "retro" feel, bring the good things from the past, not the bad part of old games. Stiff controls, slow movement, frame-rate drops, 1 pixel-perfect jumps with no retry unless you have to go to the title screen and select "Continue", "guess-jumps" and lazy hit-boxes should stay in the past.

Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge is a short sweet platformer game that everyone is gonna enjoy (well at least I hope so)

We play as Serena a space hero who is trolled by a galactic prince one day and it's up to you to go get some sweet revenge.

The game is split across 7 areas which you have to go through and fight a boss at the end of each one. Each area is alright for the most part, but I'll cover it a bit more later.

The game has some truly gorgeous pixel art and it's one of my favorite looking games to date. It brings me back to the days of playing the classic games I used to own. Everything looks top notch and if you like pixel art style you won't be dissapointed.

The soundtrack is also great and the end credits song is awesome as well. Whoever made that soundtrack deserves a pat on the back.

The game is also quite tought, but never unfair and that's what I truly liked about it. So if you don't like hand holding don't worry this game won't dissapoint you, but for those who want to experience this game without failing, the game also has a easy mode, which reduces the difficulty, but not by much.

The game also has a few things I didn't like about it.

First of all the controls are really slippery. Sometimes it's hard to makes jumps and shooting can be tricky once you are swarmed through every direction possible.

The game also locks away weapon upgrades to secrets. So if you miss one, the upcoming later might be harder, because you didn't get the upgrade you needed.

The game is also incredibly short. It took me 2 hours to finish, but this is just going through the story once. There is also multiple endings you can get, but there's only two of them.

Overall the game is really good and for the price you really can't go wrong.

Pros:
+ Amazing Art Style
+ Great Soundtrack
+Decent Challenge
+Multiple Endings

Cons:
- Too Short
- Slippery Controls

Final Rating:
7.5/10 - Good

A short and sweet game with enough button mashing to cause carpol tunnel to even the most seasoned Mario Party verteran. The game's protagonist is extremely talented at saving the universe "LOL" and crashing the game upon completion. It's a good thing she has 1 redeeming feature: Big... jumps.... (Totally not boobs).

El juego me salio barato, 40 centimos y se podria decir que valio bastante la pena.
Lo unico malo de este juego es que cada vez que disparas te detienes.. eso empieza a ser fastidioso aunque una ves te acostumbras, todo se hace mas facil.
Los niveles y los graficos son perfectos, con ese estilo noventero.. no se puede pedir mas
La dificultad con algunos boss son un verdadero reto.. eso me agrada.
7/10

Remake de "Phantis", juego español de la edad de oro del software español. Si tienes más de 30 años y creciste con los ordenadores de 8 bits como Spectrum, te va a encantar.

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.

No. Nonono.

If you're going to make a challenging platformer, you better have responsive controls. Your character in this game controls like mud, and you cannot shoot vertically upwards for some asinine reason. You literally can only shoot upwards at a 30 degree angle.

This was tolerable up to a point, even though there's no excuse for it. The breaking point was an elevator level that went on seemingly forever, with a flying enemy with tons of hit points, who you have to shoot at (30 degree awkward shots) and quickly duck out of the way - except the animation time between shooting and ducking takes a long time, and that was when I put the game down.

Bad and slow controls make this a definite pass.

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.
