Info over het spel

Gridrunner Revolution is a game which has evolved over 27 years. The original Gridrunner games were created for the Commodore 64 and Vic-20 back in 1982. The company that made the games, Llamasoft, are now one of the longest established game developers in existence and over the intervening years have done pioneering work in the field of music visualization as well as developing genre-defining games such as Tempest 2000 and the extraordinary Space Giraffe.

Gridrunner Revolution takes some core ideas from those old Commodore games and extrapolates them forward to create a game that is both modern and exceptionally beautiful. The gameplay goes way beyond mere shooting and leads players to score highly by engaging with the game's mechanic to produce aesthetically pleasing abstract graphics “performances” as they play.

Several game modes are included, along with simulations of the original Vic and C64 games so that players can see for themselves the game's history and how it has evolved in the 21st century.

  • 100 levels set across 4 difficulty levels.
  • 100 extra Neon-generated backgrounds available to users with Shader Model 3 support.
  • Beautiful procedurally-generated backdrops and enemies.
  • Soundtrack by artists from Turbo Recordings.
  • Multiple gameplay modes including Endurance and the incredibly fun and challenging Thrusty Mode.
  • Local and online hiscore tables.
  • Easily accessible gameplay is fun for all, yet still allows excellent players to maximise their score through use of advanced techniques.

If you're of a certain age, then the name Geoff Minter and Llamasoft with bring back memories of bonkers games played on the Commodore Vic20, C64 and beyond. Full of sheep, graphics that induce LSD type trances and later, hypnotic trance music, Llamasoft games are an experience beyond just merely shooting things, you find youself zoning out and playing with your subconscious. Gridrunner Revolution is classic Llamasoft at its best and the bonus Vic20 mode unlocked after completing the first level set (all levels named after increasingly strong curries) will take you back to your misplaced youth.

If you grew up playing Playstation or Xbox games, then there will be a huge dose of WTF and this game will probably not be for you. Go search youtube for some gameplay videos if you are unsure. If you want a surreal, hypnotic blaster, then this is money well spent.

excellent shump

it looks weird as hell, and it is.

but....
the control scheme is a work of genius and its one of those games where when you get in the zone your score flies, you end up playing on instinct picking up visual and aural queues that get you through the bullet hell of the later vindaloo and phaal levels. (yeah the dificulty levels are named after strengths of curry!)

Great re-think of a Jeff Minter "classic" (although I didn't like the original). A whacky & tripped-out blast-fest.

DO NOT WANT.

You seriously, don't want this game. Even if you think you do. It prides itself on being quirky but it's much like when your father thought he could use some current language and be 'hip' but really just was more lame than if he'd just admitted he wasn't 'hip'.
