App description: "This isn't just a great shooter, it's a thrilling one.... Gridrunner's a blast, and the best shooter on iOS" - Eurogamer

Voted Game of the Week on TouchArcade

Here's another slick shooter from the developer who is rapidly gaining a reputation as the king of retro on iOS.

Gridrunner was a much-loved and popular game on the Commodore Vic-20 and Commodore 64 back in 1982. Here the game is reimagined by its original author in the style of an early 1980s coin-op arcade machine. Of course this is a Minotaur Project game, so we ignore the limitations of such old hardware, borrowing just the style but presenting a slick, modern shooter that is a joy to play on iOS.

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

Gridrunner is OpenFeint enabled and supports leaderboards and achievements on both OpenFeint and GameCenter.

Get your blasting trousers on and get ready to enjoy some classic shooting fun re-energised for the modern era.

Another great Minotaur Project release.

Scores don't always get posted to GC for me.

Same with achievements not unlocking for me.

I'm having a blast with this game!! Just entered top 10 in casual mode

At first I had problem with controls but later in game when screen became a mess you realise that only tiny move matters.

My advice to all that have problem with controls would be... Don't play this game like you play Phoenix for example. Small moves are crutial latter in game

Got used to the faster pro controls pretty quickly. And they are really handy in the later levels where you have to zap from place to place in no time.

The off grid zappers are invulnerable, right?

How come you can't access gamecenter from within the app? Open feint sucks and is always offline.

Right. Big part of the challenge to always having an eye out for these two buddies.

I would love to see Llamasoft release a version of Space Giraffe for the iDevice.

Space giraffe would be awesome but I'd like their twisted take on my all time favorite Tempest.
