You're right! Think I just lost two geek points there.

In my defense, gov'ner - it was a Hewson title, not Llamasoft.

I voted for Grindrunner but Super Ox Wars really start growing on me. Specially after understanding that odd movement of ship.

Gridrunner for a claustrophobic, old school centipede fame for 0.99. I think the game has endless stages..but it does get super hard. There's 2 easter eggs in this game (2 retro modes of Gridrunner).

Super Ox Wars for a vertical shmup with planes and ground targets with I think 10 stages for 1.99.

Both are fun..but Gridrunner is more fun for me.

YES.

Personally, I like Gridrunner better, but SOW is growing on me...

If you do get Gridrunner, make sure to switch to the advanced controls - they're much better...

Sorry sir.......got to love Minter though......deserves to be one of the richest men alive. I actually can't believe I'm enjoying Super Ox Wars more than I loved his games from nigh on 30 years ago. Proper genius.

By the way.

Game Center: masvil - feel free to add me telling you are from TA.
Do you need info about HDMI out and iCade to use your iDevice as a real game station? Go there and there and thank Connector and Menneisyys.
