Universal Hero is a computer game released by Mastertronic in 1986 for the ZX Spectrum, and later for the Atari 8-bit computers (1987). The Spectrum version was developed by Stuart Middleton working under the name of Xcel Software. The Atari 8-bit release was commissioned by Mastertronic from a third-party developer.
Taking the part of Burt, the "Universal Hero", the player must repair a space shuttle in order to make their way to a planet where they can pick up the spare parts needed to mend a space freighter which is out of control and on-course to destroy both Burt and his chances of returning to Earth.
Gameplay is in the form of an arcade-adventure, with the player having to explore the flick-screen environment, avoiding enemies and solving simple puzzles by finding objects that need to be used in the correct locations to proceed.
