Uridium     

Uridium is the follow-up to Andrew Braybrook's masterpiece, Paradroid. It is nowhere near as good as Paradroid when it comes to playability. Paradroid had a brilliant game concept Uridium is more straight forward blasting. You have to destroy big dreadnought spaceships floating around a planet. You do this by fly to the end of the ship and landing on it.

The game was great on the Commodore due to it's, at the time, brilliant graphics. The Spectrum version doesn't have any of this, it has crappy scrolling and monochrome gaprhics.

Once again the Spectrum's screen is shorter than the Commodore screen making enemies jump out at you rather fast. On the Commodore you have a simple little bonus level game while the Spectrum lacks it, no big loss however.

The Commodore game is much better than the Spectrum version, the Spectrum can not comptete on games like this with the good old Commie!
