Ultimul: a new freeware PC game

Ultimul, a brand new indie PC game available for free (according to this post's title at least), is a most interesting variant of the Tower Defense genre, that slighlty reminded me of Plants vs Zombies. It is thus an action/strategy hybrid where players try to defend their base from waves of enemies -and more than a few bosses- by building and upgrading their defenses and, interestingly, by targeting enemy units. It also is a good game. And, banal as it might sound, a pretty addictive one too.

What's more, Ultimul comes complete with online leaderboards, some simple yet very pleasant graphics and a brilliantly weird electro soundtrack. Feels very polished too, which is quite an achievement, considering it's an almost one-man indie project. Download it for free from this place. It's definitely worth a try.

  1. Nice find. Will try it after I get off work :)

  2. What's nice is seeing you around again dear Roys!

  3. Nice to see you back on a regular basis too :)

    A bit too difficult for me - keeps dying after the first boss monster :(

  4. Try protecting one of your gun emplacements. It works for me.

  5. Gotcha, will try that out later.
