I really love Caverns of Minos, it's just my kind of game, especially with the hard ship although the controls are inverted for some reason, unless you play with the iCade in which case they're perfect...

Then Gridrunner and Minotaur rescue, but I gotta say I love them all...

BTW, anyone saw this?

looks like it could be a new favorite!

I've only just discovered the greatness. Got Gridrunner, GoatUp, Minotaur Rescue, & Super Ox Wars yesterday. I just literally stayed up all night playing video games for the first time since I was a kid (or maybe college procrastinator).

Oh yeah--how do you trigger the Vic/C64 versions of Gridrunner? I've had the Vic once, but unless it just triggers automatically, it was random taps I don't remember. Gotta get back to that mesmerizing bullet explosion powerup...

Lol..the first time I accidentally flipped my iPod sideways for Gridrunner, I was like what the heck. The only thing I wish is for Minter to put Gridrunner Free's relative control into Gridrunner... There's just so many more people on the leaderboards for what it's worth.

Haha just figured it out by accident. And yeah, I was upset at first when I tried the free version and then bought the game proper instead of unlocking through IAP. But the bigger leaderboard made it worth getting the expert control down. Locked in now

Gridrunner is FANTASTIC... But Ox Wars really gets me with the scoring and different 'polarities'
