Gridd 2 is an endless racer game that puts you behind the controls of a space fighter to see how long you can survive the dangers of deep space. You will have to dodge obstacles, blast away at enemy ships to travel as far as you can.
Graphics are Tron-like (the classic 1982 version), controls are easy to pick up and gameplay has a bit of zip to it. The endless racer game is available in the Windows Phone Store and is normally priced at $1.99. However, over the next twenty-four hours you can pick up the gaming title free through the myAppFree promotion.
Gridd 2 is a simple and yet fun game, and with the help of myAppFree, a steal of a deal.
While there isn't much to the game, Gridd 2 is a fast-paced, entertaining endless runner title. You have to fly your space fighter through an unending series of obstacles and face off against a broad range of enemy fighters. You will also find a series of power-ups to collect to give your ship a little boost in firepower.
Controls are simple and straightforward. Your ship is a little orange triangular thing and you use your phone's tilt controls for steering and elevation. Tap the screen to fire your ship's main cannon and you can hold the screen for rapid fire.
The pace of the game starts out with a good amount of pep and the longer you survive, the quicker the pace becomes. Your ship can take a few hits from an enemy ship's gun or from slamming through an obstacle, but there are limits. Some obstacles can be blasted with your ship's guns to clear a path, but this often requires multiple hits to accomplish.
All in all, Gridd 2 is a fast-paced, entertaining title to have in your Windows Phone gaming library. Graphics are bright, colorful and gameplay is challenging. Gridd 2 is normally priced at $1.99 with no trial version available. The myAppFree deal for Gridd 2 obliterates the price where you can pick the game up free over the next twenty-four hours.
It's the perfect time to pick up a fun game and save a little along the way. Just keep in mind that it may take a little while before the deal is live in all the markets due to time zone differences.
