Gridrunner++ Released For The Mac

Thursday 16th December, 2004

Jeff Minter's legendary shooter Gridrunner++ sheepiezaps onto the Mac, bringing with it 50 waves of the most intense psychedelic blasting for the discerning arcade addict and all-new Mac-only features, including an online high score table so you can play against the rest of the world and, for the truly hardcore, the frenzied, 'Christ, what sort of baastard thought of that?' Turbo Nutter Mode.

A frenzy of mouse-driven retro-flavoured shooting, Gridrunner++ brings Jeff's 80's classic Gridrunner into the 21st century with the ++ update that has already enjoyed considerable critical success.

And now it's available on the Mac with all the magic of the PC original along with a number of great enhancements. Despite being an avid Mac user of 20 years this is Jeff's first release on the machine and hopefully the first of many.

"Brutally addictive. One mouse, one button, shoot lots of relentlessly hostile everyday objects and icons, collect sheep to boost bonus multiplier. Minter at his most relaxed and accessible"

PC Gamer:

"Grid Runner ++ is a mile-long insectoid monster, secreting lysergic compounds... Buy the thing. No excuses. Annihilate now. It rules the old skool like Gripper Stebson."


"A hectic, weird, intuitive, pretty, noisy, defiantly old-skool blast at a downright silly price."


"You'll be compelled to give it a second, third and seventy-third try until you reach a Grid Runner trance"
