A port of Star Control II - The Ur-Quan Masters for modern operating systems
Star Control II - The Ur-Quan Masters was released in 1992 by Accolade. It is the second and final game in the series created by Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III. The original version was created for PC, but later an alternate version was released for the console 3DO, which allowed for the inclusion of speech and a modernized intro. In a similar fashion to Star Control, the full game is made up of two parts, one being arcade spaceship combat called Melee. The tactical gameplay in Star Control has been replaced by an adventure game, where the player travels through the universe and encounters all sorts of challenges.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
