They said it couldn’t be done – yet it was! Uridium was a stonewall C64 scrolling shooter and one particularly suited to the Spectrum’s great rival. Most publishers would likely have left it at that, but with ace Speccy programmer Dominic Robinson up their sleeve, Hewson decided to see what he could do.

And what a result it was…Uridium on the Speccy is fast-paced, frantic and great fun – if a little monochromatic! There are a few elements missing, naturally, but the scrolling is smooth and the sprites clear, making Uridium one of the best horizontal shooters available on the Spectrum.
