Puppygames Secret Titan Labs, 21st March 2013 - Dr. Zap has
peered into his crystal ball to look at the murky future of the
human race, and we're afraid to say it looks rather bleak.
Using the incredibly scientific method of Bayesian statistical
probability applied to heuristic predictive analysis and just plain
guessing, Dr. Zap has determined that with a 99.9% probability that
the human race will develop a machine to govern civilisation in a
fair and non-despotic manner some time in the year 3___. This
machine will inevitably discover that human beings aren't really
necessary at all and recycle us all into the lids of toothpaste
tubes, which will remain in a warehouse for eternity as there will
be no more need for toothpaste.
There is also a 0.1% probability that a single lone survivor
will escape the recycling operation and avenge the human race by
destroying the machine overlord, thereafter to live a just and
contented life, with very white teeth.
Could this survivor be you?
Ultratron is our silliest arcade game yet. Borrowing memes from
many others before it, and a gently relaxing difficulty curve akin
to boiling a frog by slowly warming its bath, prepare to be
mesmerised by hypnotic blasting action in a homage to the 80s
arcade machines of old. Loads of levels, several bosses, and three
cute pets await your attention.
