This is not a TRON syle grid game as the title suggests but actually a 'Centipede' with 'Grid' pretensions. Looking a bit like a series of blips on an oscilloscope the blue centipede dashes left and right down the screen following the red grid. To the left of the grid an alien ship tires objects into the grid which impede the centipede, causing it to reverse direction, At the base of the grid, another alien craft moves from left to right firing a laser blast upwards, causing the creature to split into the traditional segments if hit. You're just inside the grid, able to move along the base and upwards for a few lines. Your laser too destroys segments of the centipede, but watch our for the laser craft and the side ship. and avoid contact with the centipede. It's designed to be fast and addictive, but none of our reviewers found it very inspiring, I/P left/right and zero to fire. Joystick: AGF or Protek. Small graphics, average sound and an overall CRASH rating of only 47% M/C.
