"This isn't just a great shooter, it's a thrilling one.... Gridrunner's a blast, and the best shooter on (handheld devices)" - 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.
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.
As can be relied on in a Llamasoft game the controls are excellent and the gameplay fun, satisfying and rewarding.
Get your blasting trousers on and get ready to enjoy some classic shooting fun re-energised for the modern era.
