Plutonium Pirates is a flying and shooting game where you fly your dilapidated chopper to infiltrate enemy lines to retrieve plutonium stocks and nukes.

Play involves directing your craft left and right whilst judging the amount of thrust you need to stay in the air. Your chopper rattles along with signs of wear and tear, but offers impressive firepower. Using a choice of full controller, mouse and keyboard controls, you infiltrate enemy territory in search of plutonium stocks and nukes to abduct, deactivate alarms and mow down any enemy opposition you may encounter.

Plutonium Pirates takes inspiration from 90s classics like Silkworm, Thrust and Airwolf from the 8- and 16-bit shoot'em up era. Even though stealth is occasionally the best strategy for surviving the overwhelming amount of enemies, this is above all an action packed arcade blaster.
