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.

Hello all!
The newest Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge patch is finally live! Among numerous fixes and tweaks is an oft requested feature of health meters for bosses - so now those of you who were previously frustrated by seemingly unkillable bosses can see just how close you were that time you thought you *almost* made it: )

Other changes include:

  • Player crouching collision problems fixed. You shouldn't ever get stuck in a wall when crouch-turning next to one.
  • Powerup icons assignment fixed. Now your hud displays the correct powerups you are holding.
  • Fixed a glitch in boss health assignment based on difficulty level. Some bosses get slightly more HP at higher settings.
  • Many minor visual fixes - mostly for drawing priority.
  • Fixed a potential crash during end credits.
Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge is out for OUYA!

Darkfalzx, Man your game's trailer looks really good. I have not played it so i cannot comment on that, but the various game play styles incorporated into you game are just amazing, seriously you managed to compile all the various elements into one fun packed action game. Kudos to you. Would you when I play it would you like me to write a review for the game?

Kuzie.

I played the demo and imho this game has a too slow gameplay dynamic for me (walking, jumping, etc feels sluggish). Either that or I played too much Super Meat Boy. The graphics are beautiful though!

Aww - sorry man - I was going for the old arcade feel with the speed. Play it for a bit though - and it becomes quite natural.

Yeah - my knowledge of Ubuntu is super-limited - to make the Ulti builds I was mostly just following written instructions.
Linux forever remains on the "I'll learn to use it when I have some spare time" project list - and I never have the spare time: )

finally could finish the game, and to be honest the final level is quite enjoyable

i had a lot of fun with the final boss but it took me a lot of luck since i cant dodge his lower sword swipe reliably

boss health bar are a nice addition,it took me a while to understand that the boss regenerate its health each time you die

Great that the update finally went through :D Game feels much more complete now, and the changes allow for more risk to be taken in regards to my speed run :D I managed to get the game beat in under 23 minutes now. Looking forward to the "new mode".

Any possibility of getting a run down on what exactly the armor powerups do? I have been experimenting and I still cannot figure out what the benifits are of getting the parts.

Cape, brace and the hat just add an extra HP each. The suit does nothing - it's just a short-lived visual reward and a left-over from some stuff that was cut from the game due to requiring too many changes to the core gameplay (a melee-only "The Bride" mode: )

Oh - and 23 min is a very nice time!
Is that for a "complete" run - or for the shortest route possible?

Complete run :D I am posting them up on youtube, and playing them occasionally on twitch. I will admit, I laughed when I "found my dignity", thought it was a clever joke :D
The Random nature of the enemy spawns in the first level are killer man... lol
Lots of Restarts.

(oh I noticed that I really don't take that much damage through my playthroughs. Do the armor powerups exclusively give you more hits? Might be why I am not noticing.)
