Ultratron Coming to PlayStation in Early 2015

Hey all! Lucy from Curve Digital here, with the exciting news that action arcade blaster Ultratron will be coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita early next year.

Ultratron

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!

    I actually just tried Titan Attacks yesterday and I’m already in love. I didn’t think a Space Invaders game could be soo good. So yeah, Puppy Games has my attention.

  • awesome! this was the Puppygames title I wanted most.

      We’re very happy to be able to please fans of their games!

    Yeah great. I had nothing to play a while ago and wasted 12 bucks on titan attacks. Two hours later, i was finished the game and all trophies. I woulda been happier to get it free this month. So how about this time dont price your short game so high. I definitely wont be fooled again.

  • Compatible with PS TV ???

      Yup, all the games that we release on Vita will be compatible with PS TV.

  • ‘Titan Attacks’ is BRILLIANT :P Not enjoyed a sort of ‘Space Invaders’ game since the brilliant ‘Return of the Invaders’ that was on the ‘Taito Legends’ PS2 disc(GOD i love that game) :D (wish ‘Taito’ or whoever owns them now would release all their games on the PS4) :P + Any chance of doing a sort of version of ‘Scramble’ the old Arcade game(LOVED that game to) :P

    Have to agree with #3, although I was fortunate to choose Stealth Inc as the title I paid full price for.
    So a tad more than a couple hours.

    Love your games though, if they were priced more reasonably.

    Would have loved to buy Titan Attacks for a couple bucks, but don’t mind playing it free, that is, until my PS Plus sub. expires (for good) next year.

    It look like the old arcade games like Robotron.

  • Darth_NODlike

    This sounds good to me. I have been playing Titan Attacks for the past couple of days and it is great. More of this please! Oh, and Stealth, Inc. is good too. I recently got through a level that I had been stuck on for a long time. Keep up the great work!

    I love Titan Attacks, will check this out. I appreciate how Curve keeps good games coming to Vita.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    Loved Robotron 2084 growing up, and I still love the classic arcade formula to this day, so, this is an absolute no-brainer for me.

    Looking forward to it!

    @ yowzagabowza

    You can still play Titan Attacks. The game file doesn’t self-destruct once you beat the game.

    Arcade games are not about following a deep, involving story as much, so, “short” is kind of a misplaced criticism since games like this are actually designed to encourage repeated play-throughs to chase ever-increasing new high scores which is bolstered by the pure fun-factor behind the simple-yet-satisfying pick-up-and-play approach. But, I guess some people just don’t get it… they think trophies are the end. Heh. Funny how people never looked at games like that before trophies were around. Suddenly, it’s different.

    Seems as if trophies can be a bit of a buzzkill… yeah?

    Don’t you play games for pure fun anymore? Only trophies? Do you consider it a “waste of time” to continue playing a game after collecting all the trophies? If so, something’s wrong…

  • this game gives me swag so I r8 8/8
