Ultima Ratio

It's 33 years since galactic war broke out, and you were dong very nicely thank you until Ultima Ratio turned up. A nine-stage battle cruiser that carried multiple pulse guns, defence fighters and battle shields that had to be seen to be believed. Each stage must be completed and neutralised before you can progress to the next. The smooth graphics make this game, and let's face it, if you enjoy a straightforward shoot-em-up, as long as you've got smooth scrolling what more can you want? Ultima Ratio is large and colourful, fast and furious. Sit down, get set and push that fire buttons

Overall Summary

Fast and furious, smooth scrolling shoot-em-up. Good value.
