Ultrakill is a fast very violent retro shooting game. It's like the games that created this genre, Quake, Doom and the more recent Devil May Cry. You must use quick reactions to move and shoot before you yourself are shot. You can find weapons to help, but this is a game mainly focused on shooting prowess. If you get splattered in blood you regain health.

NotesAccessibility Notes


This is an intentionally hard and fast shooting game. There are aim assists and you customise difficulty by adjusting the amount of damage taken. There is an infinite stamina mode and you can disable hard damage. You can choose between enemies as silhouettes or outlined.

We've documented 2 accessibility features for Getting Started in Ultrakill which deal with what support is offered to get started with the game.

Assistance Getting Starting

These features aid your play of the game in terms of cognitive load on learning controls, dealing with pressure and coping with the environment and challenges.

Assistance With Controls: The game can automatically assist with aiming, steering, reloading, jumping, running etc. This reduces the challenge of certain aspects of play to remove barriers and make control of characters more accessible.

Adjust Speed: Adjust the speed of the game at critical moments or throughout, or rewind play for a second attempt, to ease reaction times. By slowing the game, you have more time to interpret what is happening and then execute your actions. It also reduces the pressure on getting things right quickly or the first time you attempt them.
