Beat Hazard Ultra is DLC for Beat Hazard, acting as an expansion pack which adds to the core gameplay. Like the base game, Ultra is a top-down procedurally generated shooter which takes your music files and generates waves of enemies that synchronize to the music. The purpose is to get a high score, while using various power ups (volume, multipliers, points, etc) to facilitate this score. As you play, there are a series of upgrades which can modify your game to allow for different challenges and playstyles.

Ultra adds some new weapons, enemy types, achievements, online play (both co-op and vs), a perk system, boss rush modes, leaderboards, and a few other small bits - it effectively completely reworks and adds to the game, while staying fundamentally the same at its core. If you enjoyed Beat Hazard, this is absolutely a worthwhile purchase.

Instead of trying to make the game more accurate to the beat of your music, they threw a buttload of new powerups, weapons, and gameplay mechanics in. Now whenever you rank up you get to unlock a perk. Using in-game credits you get for playing songs you can upgrade these purchased perks (more mini-missiles, longer super lasers, etc.). This adds a lot more depth and replay value compared to the "classic" game (which is still accessable on launch) and compared to other rhythm games on steam.

I used to prefer Audiosurf but it has aged poorly and Beat Hazard has received loads of upgrades. This is my favorite rhythm game on steam and probably one of the best available because of all the work the devs have put into it. Thank you for last.fm integration!

The dev took his already excellent game and set the level all the way to eleven.

You get more types of enemies (bosses included), new perks and online multiplayer.

The online multiplayer features co-op and head-to-head modes and has a nifty feature: the game indexes the songs you have on your PC, usually the ones found in the same folders you've been playing. When playing against someone else, it compares both lists and any track that shows on both of them will be playable as well as the included ones.

It is well worth the 3,99€!

If you get Beat Hazard, you MUST get this as well.
This makes Beat Hazard 3 times as fun and full of content, with online 1 on 1 or Co-Op...
