@drelbs
but sometimes levels can be finished very quickly, just by picking up some powerups or something else. some levels however can be played and played but then still with enemies on the screen you can move to the next level too. but if only these snakes are important, than it makes some sense. should check it if it works like that.

If you chain powerups, you kill everything very quickly, so you go to the next level. Collecting a powerup is not a trigger for moving on as far as I have noticed. It does seem to be a matter of killing all the snakey things.

Yup. and sometimes just staying put in the right spot kills off the baddies really fast - when you're hitting powerups left and right you can slaughter them very quickly and with all the effects running it can be hard to notice.

Default Controls tweaked

Gridrunner Free went out on 06 September 2012.
Novice controls have been tweaked to perfection: it's like a 1:1 system a little bit delayed (like Super Ox Wars). That's an undocumented (!) but great news. I doubled my score at first attend!

After IAP you have same content of old version + interesting survive mode.

Yeah I posted a new thread about the free version but no one ever responded I think Anyway, I'm still hoping he updates the full version with the new features of the free one. I hate having to install multiple versions of the sake game.

From the description: As can be relied on in a Llamasoft game
the controls are excellent and the gameplay fun, satisfying
and rewarding.

IMHO, besides Super Ox Wars (pretty good), the controls
never satisfied me !

For a game like Gridrunner it's a must to have the best there is.
Unfortunately here isn't, still. Pity. Besides SOW no other game
survived to stay on my iphone.

I hope Llamasoft won't be that lazy in their next game. Hope.

To me, these Minter games are tougher than it needs to be until the controls clicks. Gridrunner controls eventually clicked with me so its really fun. But most of the others I have just is hard to get used to...

That being said..I should really pick up Minotaur Rescue as others have recommended to me..

Edit: wow..tried the free version and the novice controls feel great. Too bad theres a lot less people on that leaderboards... Hope he eventually updates the paid ver with that controls too.
