Gridrunner Revolution Vindaloo difficulty from Jeff Minter on Vimeo

Gridrunner Revolution is the new one, Gridrunner ++ is an earlier game by Jeff Minter, indie game developer since 1978. Having not played the ++ one, I tried out the demos of both. They're both worth a try.

Perhaps due to all the complaints against Space Giraffe, Minter tried to make this new game easier to just pick up and learn to play, while still maintaining the little important intricacies which make him such a good game designer. I think he succeeded pretty well. But see for yourself; the video explains it better than I could in words.
