Description:
Futuridium is a FREE retro fast paced shoot’em up with a modern twist, that was inspired by one of the greatest 8bit C64 shoot’em up of all time, Uridium by Andrew Braybrook. In Futuridium you are a lone starship pilot who gets lost in a dimensional loop just before a big space battle: with a limited and constantly depleting energy bar, your only hope is to fly as fast as possible over enormous space dreadnoughts and destroy all the cyan power cubes, replenishing your energy tank and revealing the dreadnought’s power core, which must be destroyed to move on to the next ship. You have no power-ups and limited control over your speed so you can only count on your reflexes, your dual lasers, the nimbleness of you starship and… the ability to turn 180° on the spot, an essential ability to navigate on the intricate passages on the dreadnoughts. Three parts hi-speed actions, one part hi-speed puzzle game: the gameplay is heavily score based, you can gain big multiplier destroying cubes and chaining cubes together to get huge score boost. You can play it safe, but only taking big risks and learning the right path on the dreadnoughts will lead you to the top of the online leaderboards.
