Uridium 2 - Graftgold Keys

Hi there. So I got my A1200 all setup and was having a blast on Uridium 2 (despite my now ageing reactions) the other day and noticed (between bouts of slamming into walls at full tilt over and over) that on one of the last fleets there were destroyable structures on one of the dreadnoughts that dropped a Graftgold key.

Now I'm sure someone here will have played Paradroid 90 (another slice of greatness from Graftgold) and may recall that collecting all the keys in that game gave you access to a new ship filled with pirate/raiders and was wondering if anyone has managed to figure out what the secret (if any) in Uridium 2 is for scooping these up.

Anyone got any ideas or experience about this?

Damn, there is nothing written about Graftgold keys in Uridium 2 manual. On the other hand, it was not written even in Paradroid 90 manual. Nice find, but I am way far from ability to progress more than to some 4rd fleet of Uridium...

There is nice P-90 fanpage on Nemmelheim, but I haven't found any about Uridium

I would like to contact Andrew Braybrook or Steve Turner for this.

@Predseda - I always thought it a shame that Braybrook never seems to have gave any interviews about the games he'd had a hand in back in the days of the Amiga. Everything that had his name to it always seemed brilliantly executed and I'd love to hear what he thinks about them now looking back.

@Akira - I wouldn't hold out much hope if it's a case of a bonus message/level. I only got as far as I did because I played from fleet one and over the duration of the session accumulated a ludicrous number of extra lives. But you never know - maybe with a bit more practice I can get a bit of the old grace back when playing the game but at the moment the first few fleets are fine then it quickly degenerates into a manta + wall explosionfest :q

Out of curiosity I had a look at one of the long plays of the game on youtube and it turns out it was the last fleet and I've noticed a couple of other spots on the last fleet of dreadnoughts where it looks like more keys may reside.

Well last I read, Andrew was kind of reluctant to talk about anything related to the computer games he worked on, or maybe it's just about computer anything. He had a bad experience or something? Can't remember clearly.
