Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Firelord / Uridium

Two game pack of two Hewson classic titles, and very different ones at that.

Fire lord is a medieval village romp, that sees the character trying to rid the land of the evil lord.

The path wove deeper through the forest beckoning Sir Galaheart further into the flickering shadows. A voice spoke out in the dimming gloom. "My son, you have returned to this land of Torot, to discover its hidden secrets. You must seek out the sacred Firestone and return it to the Dragon's safekeeping." Galaheart trembled with fear as he recalled how the Evil Queen had seized the Firestone and used its power to curse the land with fire and ghostly apparitions who drifted the streets in ghastly imitation of the once happy inhabitans.

At one time the people had roamed freely but now they cowered in their homes. Her price for the release of the Stone was for some brave warrior to win for her the four charms of eternal youth. The brave knight sank to his knees overpowered by fear and foreboding. "Fear not," said the voice, "for the answer lies within the kingdom. Use the enchanted crystals and fall not." Sir Galaheart was alone. A feeling of mystery filled the forest. The very air breathed the secrets of this haunted land.

As well as the ghosts which Sir Galaheart must dispel there are a host of characters for him to meet and trade with. the Peasants know the villages and forests well although they are often slow-witted. Travel may be arranged by paying the Gatekeeper at a Toll House or by buying a Timescape spell from a Herbalist or some other magic character. The Tithe Ward Keepers will keep objects safe and sound. The Witches and Wizards have spells available and the Dragon's teeth may be of use.

Weapons can be obtained from the Knights and the Wise Old Man is a useful source of information as is the Hermit who is rumoured to live in the forests. The Bishops tend to be quick and greedy so it pays not to try and cheat them. Justice is administered by the Reeves who may be helpful if treated with respect. Princess Eleanor is held captive by the Evil Queen and she may look kindly on those who are trying to free her.

Uridium - Seminal overhead space shooter.

The solar system is under attack! Enemy Super-Dreadnoughts have been placed in orbit around each of the planets. They are draining mineral resources from the planetary cores for use in their power units.

Each Super-Dreadnought seeks out a different metal for its metal convertor. Your Manta class Space Fighter will be transported to each planet in turn and it is your task to destroy each Dreadnought. First you must attack the defensive screen of enemy fighters, then you must neutralise the majority of surface defences before you land on the Super-Dreadnought's master runway.

It is then possible to activate the Dreadnought's self-destruct mechanism. Your Manta fighter is deployed on a low-level strafing run as you start your assault on the aliens' defences. You must avoid the meteor screens and communications aerials which tower above the Dreadnought's surface.

The fighter defences deploy in waves. A bonus is awarded after landing if all ships in a wave are destroyed. Attack surface features to score bonus points but beware of the homing mines which materialise over flashing generator ports! When the LAND NOW message appears, move as soon as possible to the right hand end of the Super-Dreadnought and fly flat over the end of the master runway from left to right.
