Put down that acid, Jimmy! You don’t need drugs when you’ve got Llamasoft’s Gridrunner Revolution.
The demo for the game is now available, as is the full $20 product. Similar to the studio’s previous game Space Giraffe, summing up my experience with Gridrunner Revolution is tricky. At first, I thought I understood what I was doing; what a fool I was.
Weird shapes started flying at me, the sun’s gravity decided to f*ck with my bullets, the number of sheep references and brightly-colored explosions tripled every passing second … yes, this is a game I’m still talking about. It’s hard to say if I had “fun” per se, but the game was at the very least entertaining.
I think everyone should try the demo if only because Gridrunner Revolution is so out of its mind that it can’t be passed up. A word of caution, though: reading text on your computer after playing is not recommended.
