Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge Now On Steam And Desura

We love our retro Indie titles here at Rootgamer and today’s release of “Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge” has us jumping for joy!


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.

The game is heavily inspired by the home computer arcade games of old, such as Phantis, Halloween Harry, Jill of the Jungle and Astro Marine Corps. Games that could fit ten times over onto a single HD floppy disk. Or a cassette tape.

From retina-burningly colorful graphics, to Serena’s cartoonishly ridiculous boobs, to a nonsensical plot –  Ultionus is a love-letter to the whole era in gaming and media in general. If you miss the lighthearted sense of adventure, the over-the-top characters and the tough challenge in games – this might be the right game for you.

The music of Ultionus has been masterfully crafted by the legendary Jake ‘Virt’ Kaufman, and is a massive chiptune overload.
The awesome Luke ‘A_Rival’ Esquivel has provided the trailer track.

So – if you enjoy uncomplicated but challenging gameplay, an adventure that doesn’t take itself too seriously, tons of gorgeous pixel art, and some incredibly rockin’ chiptunes – BUY IT: )

I love all things Linux, my favorite distro being Ubuntu followed closely by Kubuntu and Linux Mint (Cinnamon and KDE). As far as I'm concerned Linux is the future of gaming. Lets make the world as open and transparent as we can!
