Puppygames’ hypnotic and beloved Steam shooter to hit Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U from May 5th

Curve Digital, the largest indie publisher of console titles, has today announced that hypnotic twin-stick shooter Ultratron will be invading Xbox One, Wii U and PlayStation consoles from next week.

Available worldwide on Xbox One on May 8th, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on May 12th and Wii U on May 14h.

The last human has been slain by evil killer robots. You are the one remaining humanoid battle droid. Your mission: avenge the human race. Boost your battledroid with power-ups, buy cute but deadly pets in the shop. Blast your way through 40-plus glowing neon levels, avoiding Chasers, Turrets, Spawners, Minelayers, bombs, and bullets, and take on the four giant boss ‘bots of the Apocalypse – Ieiunitas, Bellum, Lues and Letum.

Ultratron is a homage to the 80s arcade machines of years past. The game hails from developer Puppygames and combines the captivating experience of an old-school Robotron-esque arcade shooter with a unique retro-futuristic soundtrack and slick, stylised graphics, complete with simulated CRT-curve.

With unique retro-futuristic sound and graphics, player responsive difficulty and a subtle system of tactics combined with classic gameplay, Ultratron is a fun and hypnotic arcade blast which has already thrilled players on Steam – indeed, with its 92 per cent positive user rating, it’s regarded as one of the best examples of the genre.
