Description: Minotaur Arcade Vol. 1 brings you two arcade-style games in a classic yet modern style.
Gridrunner is a classic Llamasoft title that was created in the days of the Vic 20 and which has evolved across many platforms over the intervening years. This implementation strips away complexity and is an attempt to imagine what an arcade game of Gridrunner might have looked like had it been implemented on arcade hardware of the time.
Goatup is a light-hearted platformer that’ll have you baaing with joy. You are a little nanny goat whose mission in life is to climb up as high as you can and to raise as many kids as you can along the way.
Climb up through a variety of themed zones. Discover powerups that can augment your powers for a while as you climb. Can you make it to the top?
Review: While you don’t have to remember the two classic games this arcade ‘volume’ has it does help. Personally I don’t remember them but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the games in their modern VR makeover. But at the end of the day, the retro gameplay and indeed graphics are not going to appeal to everyone so knowing these games before will help with your enjoyment of them. My main problem is the price and at £7 per game it just doesn’t offer value for money. If you grab it in a sale you might be able to appreciate it a lot more than I did.
