Geometry Wars Clones

Mark Incitti was recently requested by Bizarre Creations (developer of Geometry Wars) to remove the Grid Wars download link. Here is the quote from Mark's web site:

"We're beginning to feel the effects of the Geometry Wars clones on our sales via Microsoft now and are beginning a process to begin to more robustly protect our copyright and intellectual property."

"Therefore, I'd like to ask you in an amicable fashion to stop infringing our IP and pull the game 'Grid Wars' from the internet for download."

"I hope you understand and are able to do this without us having to take further steps."

So, where to get your GridWars fix? Here are fifteen recommendations.

  1. Grid Wars
  2. Echoes
  3. Rainbow Wars
  4. Veck
  5. XWars
  6. Dyngrid
  7. Bullet Candy (demo)
  8. Neon Wars (demo)
  9. HGEWars
10. Grid Assault
11. Mu-cade
12. Base 2
13. Mono
