Awesome "shooter"reginleifx | Nov. 13, 2014 | See all reginleifx's reviews »
I bought Velocity Ultra expecting an old school arcade shoot 'em up. I was wrong, I got something better. The game is a shooter, with a twist. Your objective is to rescue people who have been involved in a black hole incident, so shooting enemies is not going to be your priority. There is a teleport feature, that is of great help during most levels, since you need to use it from time to time to get to some upgrades or survivors. There are some puzzle elements as well. Graphics are alright. I cannot say much about them Velocity Ultra's soundtrack, albeit short, is fitting and actually pretty good. Get Velocity Ultra if you want to play an overall innovative experience.
Intense colors and gameplayFreako | Jan. 7, 2014 | See all Freako's reviews »
This game speaks itself. Velocity meaning speed we are pretty much dealing with hyper speed here. Your brain has no time to tell your hands to react. It's really fast and challenging that's the fun part. Velocity Ultra is a great game with racing and puzzle elements mixed up in one game which is great. You don't see this kind of games often in the market and i highly recommend anyone who likes a fast paced action racing game to try this out. Definitely worth it.
A must have!gasheadgeorge | Dec. 18, 2013 | See all gasheadgeorge's reviews »
Starts out as a shooter mixed with a racing game, but very soon turns into a complicated puzzle which will keep you hooked from the word go! Graphics are basic but being a 2d game you would not expect much better, cut scenes are very interesting, images based on a manga, action comic style. Controls can be mastered very quickly but a little more work is needed to master the skill of the game. Very addictive the more and more you play, has the simplicity of an old retro N64 game with the gameplay of something much more modern which couldn’t have been achieved these many years ago.
