    Conclusive proof that retro games can still mix it up with modern releases, Gridrunner is a shooter fan's dream come true. Sublime controls and a stern challenge make this one of the best blasters to grace iOS in ages.

    Gridrunner may not be an entirely new product from Jeff Minter, but as always the mash-up of gaming nostalgia and distinctly modern influences makes for an appealing 'retro' remake.

    Gridrunner, much like the rest of Jeff Minter's games on iOS, is a must-buy. He's actually one of the few developers that I would buy a game from as soon as I found out it was available, and I'll keep up with this.

    Whether you have reason to be nostalgic for Gridrunner or not, it's worth checking out. It's a best-of-both-worlds sort of remake: faithful to its forebearers but filled with clever modern enhancements. If you're dead-set on believing that the original is best, you can go ahead and play that instead.

    The granddaddy of shoot-em-ups gets an interesting touch remake, but fails to motivate in the long run.
