Which is the best game by Jeff Minter (Llamasoft) ?
If you had to get just one, which would it be?
Missing Deflex, Minotaur Rescue and Super Ox War for the poll.
But my favorite is still Gridrunner.
Gridrunner for me, followed by GoatUp.
Huge fan of Minter and LlamaSoft ever since he put J Allard's face into the earliest levels of Space Giraffe, but Gridrunner especially will always have a place on my devices.
Love Goat Up and the new game but i've always been a fan of Minotron due to the classic game its based on.
Do really like some of the later levels of Goat Up though (Eg the one based on the Sinclair Spectrum game Manic Miner)
Always find myself going back to minotaur rescue but pound for pound Super Ox War is perfect. Can play on my phone or iPad and is equally good with touch or iCade/iCP controls. It's made me go back to five a day too which is actually fantastic - although i can't see the game center leaderboard.
Overall, Super Ox Wars for me though. Perfect.
Minotaur rescue, then gridrunner, then minotron 2112, then goatup. But really, all 8 ios releases are very solid games.
Gridrunner first, then a 3-way tie for second place: GoatUp, Minotaur Rescue, Super Ox Wars.
I honestly haven't gotten any of his iOS games (most came out prior to my upgrade to a 3GS so I couldn't play them) so I was kind of curious about this as well --- which one was the best.
Gridrunner kind of had my interest peaked the most until Super Ox Wars came out. Now, I'm confused. Why isn't Super Ox Wars in the poll?
Also - Hover Bovver & Attack of the Mutant Camels! (free IAP in the Commodore 64 app )
Yeah SOW is probably the best, but Gridrunner is close. Since the poll doesn't include SOW, guess I'll vote for second best.
And Iridis Alpha.
You're right! Think I just lost two geek points there.
In my defense, gov'ner - it was a Hewson title, not Llamasoft.
I voted for Grindrunner but Super Ox Wars really start growing on me. Specially after understanding that odd movement of ship.
should I get gridrunner or super ox wars? or if I was to get two of his games, which should I get? (I have Goat up already)
Gridrunner for a claustrophobic, old school centipede fame for 0.99. I think the game has endless stages..but it does get super hard. There's 2 easter eggs in this game (2 retro modes of Gridrunner).
Super Ox Wars for a vertical shmup with planes and ground targets with I think 10 stages for 1.99.
Both are fun..but Gridrunner is more fun for me.
Personally, I like Gridrunner better, but SOW is growing on me...
If you do get Gridrunner, make sure to switch to the advanced controls - they're much better...
Sorry sir.......got to love Minter though......deserves to be one of the richest men alive. I actually can't believe I'm enjoying Super Ox Wars more than I loved his games from nigh on 30 years ago. Proper genius.
I think Gridrunner..But not sure!
^Have you actually got the game then ghanistha123 ?
By the way.
