All things considered, Ultratron is a great arcade pickup game. With a resumable save-as-you-go feature, competitive online scoring records, bonus stages, and a subtle scoring and upgrading system that lends itself to experimentation, Ultratron's twitchy gameplay will frustrate you in a good way.
So what is the ultimate verdict? While the game does pack a nice challenge, it is sometimes too much of a challenge depending on what type of player has their grasp on the game. The $9.95 price is quite the deal, as you'll probably be playing this game a bunch if you find yourself loving the formula and looking to improve your ranking on the online High Score board. The thing that ultimately takes Ultratron down a peg is the controls, which can be a serious hamper until you manage to work around them (though even then it doesn't feel perfect), and are vital (especially to this style of game) when you find yourself surrounded in every direction and you need an out. Still, controls aside, it is a really fun game at a very low price.
Ultratron is another homage to one of the best arcade games of the classic era. It embellishes its Robotron heritage with bosses and retro-futuristic graphics, but stays true to its roots.
