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.
Agree - he really has nailed the controls on the free one.

I tried the LITE version of Gridrunner - and loved it - so I got the full version. Unfortunately, the lite version has awesome relative 1:1 controls, whereas the full version seems to only offer two varieties of floaty controls (Novice and Expert).

The purpose of a LITE version is to allow people to trial a game before purchasing it. But in Gridrunner, the LITE controls are not representative of the full game, which is disappointing.

Survival is the best way to play the game anyway so you're better off with the free version. In the main game the difficulty ramps up too slowly.

Could not believe it, so i had to download the lite and, wow! ,
for the first time Mr.Minter nails the control ! In a lite version

Of course i expect him to update the paid version to the same
standard...otherwise...no more buy ever.

Plus one star ratings forever

Well... The lite came out in September... I think... And the full haven't been updated in MONTHS...

I'd be surprised if it is carried over...

Minter's tweets are awesome, btw. Besides making games it seems like he mostly takes care of sheep and goats and stuff.

Coming back from the GOTY poll, reading the last two pages
about Gridrunner...didnt now about the lite version at all.

I...just feel a bit pissed off. One day buy, back then, and no update !?
Could not get used to the controls, both of 'em.
For once it hurts, another buck (or two?) for the same game is so...
...so f*#%+^%* not right ! I'll stick to my post above.

I agree with you that the original Grindrunner should be updated with
- survival mode
- third control scheme
(-no open feint)
(-hard mode)

But don't get mad about it sheesh. There are a lot of cynical, money grubbing game makers out there Lllamasoft very clearly isn't one of them. It's just one crazy* old guy.

I agree as well. A couple on months ago I sent a tweet to Jeff (it seems to be the only way to contact him directly) asking explanation about:
1. the reason why he didn't add that "novice" control to Gridrunner (full);
2. if he has plan to add it in the future.
... but he never replied.

Strange but true Gridrunner Free "Novice" controls implementation is undocumented in App Store description and Google+ post (see my comment too).

Yeah, that is the only explanation
