Ultra Vortek is the title of a video game developed and published by Atari for its Atari Jaguar home console system in 1995. The game is an ultra violent fighting game virtually identical to Mortal Kombat or Primal Rage. The game's design followed the 90's fighting game trend and attempted to capitalize on the popularity of such games.
