Iridium - Retro inspired shooter with inspirations such as Uridium is a Kickstarter success!

If you were a huge fan of that classic game 'Uridium ' which was released in the late 80's for the C64 Atari ST, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, BBC Micro, NES, Virtual Console and MS-DOS, or the high grade modern version from the original team Hewson Consultants called ' Hyper Sentinel '. Then you'll probably be over the moon to hear from Nebula-Design, that their kick ass Uridium inspired game of ' Iridium ' is a Kickstarter success raising £2,671 and 27 days still to go.

Hewson Consultants made great games for old computers, such as the fantastic Uridium, Paradroid, Cybernoid, Exolon, Nebulus and many more that were just some of the games they released. Uridium for example was one of those great games, and it's probably why James Roberts of  Nebula-Design was also a fan and decided to do this awesome looking remake in his own style.

And it's that style that looks very much appealing. As according to the creator James Roberts and graphical artist Kevin Saunders, Iridium doesn't just take its inspiration from games such as Uridium, Xenon 2 Mega Blast and Nemesis / Gradius, but adds in a ton of kick ass features such as multiple layers of parallax, 18 levels split over 6 sectors, 3 main player weapons each with differing power levels, rockets and missles, external weaponry systems, weaponry shops, progress saves and an epic original music score by Akira.

And that's pretty much most of the info covered, but if you're still not convinced this Kickstarter is worth backing even though it is a success, the team behind the game have also released a demo, and will make sure it will come to the PC with a possible Nintendo Switch down the line.
