If any long forgotten genre of videogames has benefited most from the advent of digital distribution and the influx of creative, independent game developers over the last few years, it must surely be the shoot-em-up. We’ve seen more or less every obvious take on the theme imaginable, yet I’m almost always pleasantly surprised by the next innovation or twist.
Ultratron is the latest twin-stick shooter to launch on the Xbox One and it promises a number of interesting features, including “unique retro-futuristic sound and graphics, player responsive difficulty, and a subtle system of tactics combined with classic gameplay.” At first glance, Ultratron looked like a fairly uninspiring arena based shooter, but I’m pleased to report that despite a few minor complaints, there’s more to it than meets the eye.
Glory to the days of Robotron 2084.
If that is something you find yourself saying, Ultratron might be for you.
Set in a world where all humans have died out, one remaining humanoid battle droid sets out to avenge the human race. Along the way, many enemies such as Turrets, Chasers, Spawners and Minelayers attempt to impede the path of the battle droid’s quest in 40+ levels of glowing neon. If that’s not enough, four giant bosses- Ieiunitas, Bellum, Lues and Letum will attempt to give the battle droid some trouble.
Ultratron is a twin stick shooter that features retro-futuristic sound, graphics and a simulated CRT-curve to take the player back to the days of retro. The game will be available for purchase at the price of $9.99, €9.99 or £7.99 and is said to have launch discounts as well.
