The Advertising Blurb

It is ten years after the infamous Grid Wars, and humanity is once again threatened by the evil droids, only this time they're back in force with new weapons and new allies.

The awesome sequel to the best selling Gridrunner, Matrix features all the old favourites like Droids and Zappers, but increases the panic quotient by adding Diagonal waves, Cosmic Cameloids, Energy deflexors, the Snitch and more.

Game originally developed by Jeff `Awesome' Minter of Llamasoft. In space only the camels can hear you scream.

Review:

The grid structure makes for an interesting and subsequently much copied variation on what is really a basic shoot-'em-up.
