Virtual Console / Commodore 64
15 Super-Dreadnought ships have invaded your galaxy, each looking to steal a different precious metal.
Uridium is a much loved classic amongst Commodore 64 enthusiasts. Well known for its fast-paced gameplay and unique game mechanics, at least some of that reputation is deserved. Designer Andrew Braybrook was known for his idiosyncratic but eminently playable game concepts, and they are plentiful..
About The Game
15 Super-Dreadnought ships have invaded your galaxy, each looking to steal a different precious metal. Destroy the dreadnought's defensive forces, then land to finish the job.
Fly your Manta fighter across the screen, speed up, slow down, perform a 90-degree roll and shoot lasers to destroy both ground targets on the dreadnought, and enemy fighters.
When the dreadnought's defences are gone, the message "Land Now" flashes on screen. Fly to the right side of the dreadnought and fly your ship across the run-way, left to right. This brings you to the fuel rod chamber, where you finish the job. Time pressing with the flashing pyramid of lights until time is about to expire, then select "Quit" and press to make your escape before the ship is destroyed. You will be taken to the next enemy dreadnought.
