So instead of finishing off the work I was supposed to do this afternoon I spent an hour attempt to make any kind of headway in Gridblaster. For some reason Gridblaster breaks the videogame-processing parts of my tiny brain. It seems no more complicated than your average retro-shooter, but for some reason there’s just too much going on for me to cope with.

It looks innocuous enough – it’s the Bomberman map with added shooty stuff – but it’s hurting me.

And I can’t deal with it. I have to stop. Perhaps it’ll be okay for you.

Found via the splendid Retro-Remakes.

    This is where I expose my newb-ness.

    How do I make this run?
    I can’t see an .exe anywhere in the unzipped files.

  2. Jim Rossignol says:

    Something went wrong then, there is an .exe in there.

    Gah. It’s the limited rate of fire. I can’t react quickly enough to all those baddies.
