Ultra Age Reviews
In a nutshell, Ultra Age reeks of low budget jank, but its (awful) presentation is deceiving. This is actually a surprisingly competent hack ‘n’ slash that respects its sources of inspiration, all while adding some interesting elements of its own.
Ultra Age certainly offers a unique experience, making it a great addition to the action genre. The elaborate look and the frantic combat are its biggest highlights. Even so, the impression is that the game is not fully exploiting its potential, which can be corrected in a possible sequel.

As it stands Ultra Age is one of the most impressive small-scale 3D action games you can get a hold of.
Ultra Age executes a very fun and engaging combat system with bosses that were unique and great to fight. However, introducing so many combat mechanics with its many swords and never using them during boss fights is a major letdown. The story was basic and the dynamic of Age and Helvis never grew over the journey in the many boxed-in levels. Thus, I can not recommend this game since the only enjoyment to be found is in its combat. But the game never felt boring, and it shows the clear ambitions that weren’t executed well by two indie studios. While I won’t remember the journey Age and Helvis went through in the years to come, I will remember the fun I had with its combat.
Ultra Age is a no-brainer for indie action game fans. The adventure features seamless gameplay, fun boss designs, a low price, and the potential to create a franchise. It challenges the player to pay attention to enemy movements, create new playstyles and understand the game mechanics to the fullest while keeping it fun and creative. While the story has its shortcomings, I am sure with some added detail in the future; it can become a hit of its own.
In Ultra Age we are going to find a good action game that will test our reflexes. While it is true that their ideas are original and the desire to do things as best as possible within its possibilities is noticeable, its problems are evident and it falls short in important areas such as combat or exploration. Even so, it is a good game that will entertain us until the end.
