Velocity: Ultra is enhanced and native HD version of Velocity game which was released as a PlayStation mini. Aside from gameplay graphics being done for higher resolutions, the comic-like anime-style cutscenes have also been redone offering more details but in a slightly different style. The gameplay remains pretty much the same, with some bigger adjustments for PlayStation Vita version to provide better gaming experience. The player controls a spaceship viewed from top-down perspective, with the background constantly scrolling downward, thus making the player move upwards. You can bump into any obstacle on the screen and will often have to navigate through narrow corridors, but you have a special teleport ability which left you move in a flash from one position to another even through solid objects. Weapons are fired upward, while the bombs can be launched in any direction (with right analog stick on PSVita). On PSVita teleporting can be done via touch screen or you can aim with a crosshair bubble and press button to initiate the shift. Each mission's goal is to rescue as many survivors as you can by approaching their pods floating stranded in the space, and trying to deal with enemy spaceships trying to prevent you from rescuing survivors. Turbo boost can be used to increase the scrolling speed and make your ship move faster, which is even required for certain levels that need to be cleared within a given time limit.
