Gridwars – Geometry Wars Clone

GridWarsRarely a game comes along that is insanely fun, simple, and free. So when one does come by, I’m on it like a redneck on a filet mignon smothered with a vermouth and mustard sauce. One such game I’ve discovered tonight and that has me in a giddy state of glee, is GridWars. It’s essentially a clone of the insanely popular minigame, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, which is an Xbox 360 game called Project Gotham Racing 3.

It’s like the classic Atari game, Asteroids, but much more insane and addictive. It features blazing fast gameplay, trippy colors, and some sweet powerups. This game is best suited if you have a dual analog controller, like my Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2, which works excellent for this game.

    I felt the same way. I can not believe this game is/was free (microsoft is trying to stop the free grid wars) . I am in love with this game i also us a game pad (ps2 controller via usb adapter) there are other clones out there that i have found, there not as good but there are almost as entertaining –>http://indygamer.blogspot.com/2006/08/geometry-wars-clones.html they have a list of clones if you get a chance try mono its sorta like grid wars in a different graphical way. I am now on the quest to find more of these odd jewels if any. Iwould love to see a breakout/arkanoid game in this style of graphics, that would be sweet.
