The game marks the second time we’ll be working with original developer Puppygames, who are also the creators of Titan Attacks, another arcade reinvention which we brought to PlayStation platforms earlier this year. Ultratron isn’t a direct sequel, but just like Titan Attacks, it takes a classic arcade game and coats in a layer of modern polish, vibrant, colorful graphics and addictive risk/reward play.
Where Titan Attacks was all about expanding on classic Space Invaders, Ultratron takes its cue from Robotron and other classic twin-stick shooters adding upgrades, two player co-op, and adaptive difficulty that manually adjusts the pace of the game based on the skill of the player.
During the game, you’ll attempt to avenge the human race as you blast your way through over 40 glowing neon levels, avoiding Chasers, Turrets, Minelayers, Spawners, bombs, and bullets before taking on the four evil ‘bot bosses of the Apocalypse.
Ultratron is a pure arcade experience that makes it perfect for portable gaming on Vita and loud, music blaring big-screen TV sessions. We’re really excited to bring it to console, and we hope everyone who enjoyed the PC version will be delighted to play the game on the big screen from the comfort of their living room.
Ultratron joins puzzle game Nova-111 in our 2015 PlayStation line-up, and we’ve got at least two more unannounced games coming to PS4 next year as well, so keep an eye on the blog for more announcements!
