Om detta 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.

great psychedelic retro arcade action. if you are waiting for it to go on sale, don't hold your breath because i have owned this game on steam for six years and not once in that time do i ever recall seeing this game sold at a discounted price.

also i think they ditched the leaderboards like five years ago so don't expect that part of the game to work if you buy it today.

Early on, but a little less frenetic than Gridrunner++. A mellower experience. Ahh, nice.

Take one teenager, a bag of weed and Game Maker and you've got a recipe for Desura.

Fortunately, however, Steam's early desperation to build a catalogue paid off with this extremely amateur remake of the 80's classic.

Even though they would hate to admit to it I am sure early steamers would consider the mechanically blurted 'Sheepy' (every four or five seconds) just as memorable as Sinistar's taunts.

I would liken Gridrunner to wearing kaleidoscope goggles while inebriated and taking a huge crap - Very theurapeutic if you're looking to let your tongue hang out for a bit as your anxious mind deficates itself thinner.

Gameplay consists of just the left analogue stick steering around your auto-firing love ship of salvation rescuing Facebook users from a 500 foot gorilla; art immitating life and all.

The fact that this game is so friggin' old yet immediately recognizes an x-input (and maybe d-input) gamepad speaks more for the childish effort than many recent Indie games flushing onto Steam from Greenlight.

I'm pretty sure I grabbed this from a Christmas sale for around $2 and originally Valve couldn't have been pushing the title for more than $5. I wouldn't pay the current $12 but I think that a Gog-priced $6 would be spot on.

If you're running a newer Win OS than XP (which most likely you are) I'll repeat the instructions given by a forum user suggesting to simply delete the configuration file stored in AppData/Roaming. I've also set my compatibility to XP SP3 (the OS I was using when I first bought this title). It should also be noted that you'll need to patiently wait a good thirty seconds for the game to load.

You could save $9.99 by simply taking a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of drugs and staring at a blank screen....
but, my job randomly drug tests, so this is what I do.

Gridrunner Revolution.... One of the many space shooters out there. What sets this game apart from all the other space shooters is the fact that in this game you have to collect Sheep...... yes space sheeps I think..... the will upgrade your weapon....

You don't have to press a button to shoot, no you will be shooting the whole time takes, you only need to dodge the enemies bullets and collect sheep and lifes.

The game looks like a nice screensaver with all kinds of weird things flying on the screen which suppose to be space ships i think, The sheeps are nice and visible though...

To be honest, I'm not into space shooters, especially the ones with weird graphics and space trance music. This is suppose to be a remake of Gridrunner on the Commodore 64 but this game should've stayed in the past where it belongs.

Gridrunner Rev is the oft overlooked Llamasoft game. I sorta get why, it's not the most approachable despite being clearly designed -to be- the most approachable.

That said, it's a little hard to grasp as it exists in its own world and with its own language. Exploding suns, flowers, pretty colours yet really, it's a fairly straightforward game to play with a strong scoring mechanic. Essentially, the prettier a pattern you make on screen with your bullets, the higher you score. If nothing else, that's different, right?

If I had to pull it on anything it's that it locks the best part of the game behind an awful unlock system. You have to wade through a slow and slightly uninteresting group of stages before the high score mayhem can begin in earnest. Again, a clear attempt to draw people in but let's be realistic here, Gridrunner Rev is -for- the kind of people who really enjoy score chasing.

And y'know, when the whole screen explodes around you with the Neon effects in the background it's quite the sight to behold.

So yeah, a bit janky round the edges, attempts at accessibility that fall a little flat but a great underloved gem that given some time to gel makes for a good companion piece to Space Giraffe.

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!)

Another one of my guilty pleasures: I've never really done well in this game, but I don't care. If I'm looking to create something damn near meditative, I pop this open for a while and run with it.

Stunning game!

Watching the game in full flow is truly a sight to behold, so much insanity going on all at once but I never felt overwhelmed or feel confused or lost in the action.

Music's awesome too!
