About This Game

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.

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.

Soundtrack and visuals for this game are amazing. That combined with it's unique, but familar arcade gameplay make this my favorite llamasoft game.

Long time fan of Minter since the early days. Hit an apex with Tempest 2000 on the Jaguar. This game is back up there and well recommended.

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.

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.
