Futuridium EP is a retro, fast-paced shoot’em up with a modern twist, inspired by Uridium by Andrew Braybrook.

You are a lone starship pilot who get lost in a dimensional loop just before a 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 ship’s power core, which must be destroyed to move to the next ship.

The gameplay is heavily score based, you can gain big multiplier destroying cubes
Requirements
Intel, OS X 10.6 or later

I held the OPTION key down as I launched the game but it did not show the Config Dialogue.However, I printed the dialogue you gave me in TextEdit and am using it. Thank You!

When you start the game you should see a configuration dialog appear. Select the "Input" tab here and you should be able see the available controls as well as set them to other keys if desired.

I tried it and I had no directions in the game whatsoever ,I learned through playing the game and randomly pressing keys that Q will fire but I don't know what other controls exist.I would love to play this game if I could get some directions.

The config dialog has an "Only show this dialog if the option key is held down" checkbox. Perhaps a launch with the option key held down would force the dialog to appear for you? I'm on 10.8.4 also and have had no problems with the configuration not being displayed.

The main default keys are:
Fire - q
UTurn - space
Left - a (or left arrow key)
Right - d (or right arrow key)
Up - w (or up arrow key)
Down - s (or down arrow key)
Pause - p
Next Track - x
Previous Track - z

There's really not many controls available for this game. It's set up for a joystick by default, but you can configure to use the mouse also.

Futuridium EP is a retro, fast-paced shoot’em up with a modern twist, inspired by Uridium by Andrew Braybrook.

You are a lone starship pilot who get lost in a dimensional loop just before a 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 ship’s power core, which must be destroyed to move to the next ship.

The gameplay is heavily score based, you can gain big multiplier destroying cubes and chain 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 leader boards.

  • No special powers, no bonuses: only the player reflexes count. Your ship, your lasers, your ability!
  • You can stop and turn your ship 180° at any time, just pressing a button.
  • No speed control: you fly as fast as possible...
