Play u evade


About This Game

You are u, a flying saucer having flown off course to a planet far away from home, drawn back thither on its own.
In your desire to not hurt the native life, you intend to evade.


Auto-Scrolling through a procedurally generated stylised landscape, its "assets" ordered newly on every game playthrough, you navigate u around incoming "life": birds and "low-pressure zones", using the controls. You cannot be hurt and if you collide you merely disorientate the bird or even the pressure. You will reach home in the play duration across 6 "levels".


gamepad left joystick, keyboard keys WASD, keyboard arrow keys to navigate.
gamepad button 0 or keyboard key Enter to start.
gamepad shoulder buttons right and left to increase or decrease time speed multiplication and keyboard number key 1 to 9 to set the time speed multiplier directly to that numbers value.
keyboard key Escape to exit.

Play Duration

You will be home in about 15 minutes.


Originally intended to be released on a handheld with stereoscopic capabilities, release packaging was too cumbersome and thus "u evade" is released here on Steam.


This game is optimised for a screen aspect ratio of 5:3 (15:9). On 16:9 screens it will be cut off a bit at the top and at the bottom. Press keyboard keys Alt+Enter to leave fullscreen and be able to resize the window to your liking, press Alt+Enter again to view in fullscreen again.
