"Beautifully brutal and will have you coming back for more!" - SNAPP Attack

"Two parts Vampire Survivors blended with one part Dark Souls" - TouchArcade

Defend Mankind's last city from the endless hordes of darkness! Ultra Blade is a horde survival RPG with rogue-lite progression elements. Build new heroes to take on new challenges while cutting through 1000s of foes at once. New heroes unlock new powers, making runs more dynamic the more you play.

Drag to move and auto attack, release to execute a heavy attack. Swipe to dodge. The controls are simple, but the real complexity is in how you build your champion. Infuse flaming bolts into your bow, generate earthquakes with your slashes, or summon blizzards with your shield- the possibilities are almost limitless.

Built for short, action-packed sessions.

Core features Include:
- One-touch control scheme and challenging, skill-based combat
- Endless Challenge Mode that refreshes every hour
- 27 Unique arena gauntlets to master
- 12 Unique heroes to unlock by completing challenges.
- 5 core classes (Bow, Shield, Greatsword, Gun, and Staff) and 100s of weapons to mix and match
- 15 Meta-changing relics to unlock and upgrade
- Mutating enemies that change how they fight and behave.
- Fully offline
- Blood-pumping soundtrack

And more to come!

First Impressions

It’s good fun! Once you get going it is addicting and hard to stop playing as I just keep wanting to do better, try more play styles, and get more unlocks. Which very quickly you are able to unlock more characters, aka Blades.

I did notice something that could maybe be tweaked is that when first starting out I found the level select screen a little bit confusing at first. It took me a moment to figure out how to start the game. But as soon as you play your first match the next time you are on the level select it becomes clear as gems begin appearing on the blade that represent the various levels you can play.

I really like the character unlock/select screen that works as the main menu. It looks very sleek and the background imagery with the moving clouds are very cool!

One bit of feedback for the dev I might mention for this and other works is that I love the bits of dialogue and lore backdrops within Immortal Rogue, and the little character bios and planetary backstories in Blast Waves. I am sure you try to limit the story elements both as an artistic choice and also so as not to overburden your workload, but you make great worlds and if possible I would love to see a little more of those elements in this and other games of yours! I hope that you will consider this.

To other potential players I would definitely recommend this game, and others by this dev. especially if you like rogue-likes.

Another gem from Kyle Barrett

Fully agree with Teemberland’s review. Ultra Blade has replaced VS for me, and I’m looking forward to many hours of grinding and unlocking. I love the way each blade has subtle, unique tactics that take time and real strategy to master. Certain blades are better suited to specific zones, and it takes some experimenting to clear waves effectively.

The camera shake on Rebus Prime and the tiny UI elements pushed all the way to the edges of the screen are problematic. Not sure how the game made it through beta testing without Kyle getting that feedback. Hopefully those issues will be addressed in an update.

Bottom line: this is another gem from Kyle Barrett and 100% worth the purchase!
