Se we had Gridrunner in the HSC recently and I really enjoyed playing it and want to bump up my score. I think i hit 63k or so recently. Since the game was an easter egg and not in the manual, the controls and "tips" aren't in there like for the other games which makes that a little harder. I reached out to CJ RE controls: a/b are the shooty things c pause # * As far as I can tell: a-holding locks secondary ship/shoots, pressing brings it toward you from wherever it is on the map b-Shoots c-Superzapper type weapon, turns all ships on screen into bonus llamas, but I think costs you one life pause- pauses game #-back to game *-restart And for strategy: -Watch for ships coming from the bottom of the screen, you can see their outline before they pop up usually -Collect bonus llamas when you see them for extra points -Avoid lazer hits from roving mechs on top/side of screens -Shoot ship trains when they are turning to take them all out at once (a la Centipede) I noticed near the end of the second level a missile shoots up from the bottom of the screen and kills you. Is there any way to avoid this? I'm usually pretty short on lives by then and it's ended my game twice now. Any thoughts on this or any other Gridrunner strategy would be much appreciated. Great game and thanks again to all those involved!

I did not see it mentioned here before but if it is old new I'm sorry. Jeff Minter (of Tempest 2000 fame) has released a revamped version of his oldy Gridrunner for Android and iOS. The Android version is Donationware and the iOS version is $0.99. Maybe this is the time to upgrade my Symbian phone to Android Robert http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=t4WOnuqeetI
Last fall we released Jeff Minter Classics for the Atari Jaguar, containing two of Jeff Minter's most popular classic computing titles: Llamatron: 2112 and Revenge of the Mutant Camels. The excellent Atari ST versions of these games were brought to the Jaguar by Lawrence Staveley (author of Rebooteroids), joined together by a beautiful menu illustrated by William Thorup. Stunning artwork was also created by William Thorup for the box, manual, label and included double-sided poster. In celebration of Jeff Minter's announcement of a Playstation 4 port of Gridrunner, we're excited to reveal that Gridrunner has been hidden inside all copies of Jeff Minter Classics sold to date! We've put together a video that shows how you can unlock Gridrunner. Once you've done so, Gridrunner will be displayed on the menu when the cartridge boots up, so you only need to unlock it once: As an added bonus for Gridrunner, you can choose to use an Amiga or Atari ST mouse (with a proper adapter) to control your ship, in addition to the stock Jaguar controller. Playing Gridrunner with a mouse is a blast! If you don't already have a copy of Jeff Minter Classics, you can pick up a copy in the AtariAge Store. Happy Easter to all Atari Jaguar fans!
