App Description"This isn't just a great shooter, it's a thrilling one.... Gridrunner's a blast, and the best shooter on iOS" - Eurogamer
Voted Game of the Week on TouchArcade
Here's another slick shooter from the developer who is rapidly gaining a reputation as the king of retro on iOS.
Gridrunner was a much-loved and popular game on the Commodore Vic-20 and Commodore 64 back in 1982. Here the game is reimagined by its original author in the style of an early 1980s coin-op arcade machine. Of course this is a Minotaur Project game, so we ignore the limitations of such old hardware, borrowing just the style but presenting a slick, modern shooter that is a joy to play on iOS.
As can be relied on in a Llamasoft game the controls are excellent and the gameplay fun, satisfying and rewarding.
Gridrunner is OpenFeint enabled and supports leaderboards and achievements on both OpenFeint and GameCenter.
Get your blasting trousers on and get ready to enjoy some classic shooting fun re-energised for the modern era.
Another great Minotaur Project release.
