The Ur-Quan Masters -- an intragalactic adventure game
The Ur-Quan Masters is the public release of the legendary Star Control 2 from 1992. Starcon2 was a revolutionary adventure game which featured role-playing elements and 2D arcade-style space combat in the grand tradition of Space War. The Ur-Quan Masters brings together the best features of the PC and 3DO versions and adds a fast-paced Super Melee mode.
You assume control of a single vessel built with an advanced alien "Precursors" factory-planet and return to Earth, only to find it enslaved. In your epic quest to overthrow the Ur-Quan overlords, you must travel to remote star systems, gather resources, outfit your flagship, recruit alien allies, battle diverse foes, and discover and disrupt an enigmatic enemy tradition in time to prevent the annihilation of the entire human race!
This package includes the application and will install the required game content. You may also install the optional uqm-3do-data package (130 MB) to add the music and dialogue voice-overs from the 3DO release of Star Control 2.
Experience one of the greatest space games ever made!
UQM is a very involved game. See the homepage for more information and resources. The newest release version fixes keyboard layout issues for users without arrow keys. See the keyboard layout image for a control key map.
This version IS specifically for the N900 and works great with it. Unfortunately, nobody with a defective N900 (those that are missing up and down arrow keys) tested and reported this fact to me. An easy workaround is available until a new version with tilt control is out. See http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=416656&postcount=158
One of the best games of all time, and the UQM project is a great job. Nice to see it ported, but unfortunately some of the required control keys don't work on the N900. It'd be just a minor tweak to make it playable on the phone, I think, because it works nicely otherwise.
