Now *that’s* a video game!

If you are of a certain age, and hear the name “Jeff Minter”, your mind becomes populated by psychedelic ungulates as you recall your youth misspent playing Revenge of the Mutant Camels and one of my favorite games, Llamatron (best played LOUD!).

Proper games they were.

Enter Grid Wars. It’s beautiful. It’s noisy. It’s “Minteresque”. It’s only the sound that gives it away as not being a Llamasoft production, but it’s still good. Look….

Grid Wars

I haven’t figured out the finer points, I just love whizzing my ship around blowing stuff up prettily. Download from here and read an excellent writeup here!

Do it soon, as it seems Microsoft have told the original author to stop making it available, as the idea is derived from an XBox360 game. Boooo!
