GridWars Arcade Shooter Game (GW2 stylized as |g|ridwars)
Released: 21 December 2005
Developer : Mark Incitti
A computer game inspired by Bizarre Creations’ Geometry Wars developed by Marco Incitti. The first version of the game was released as freeware on December 21, 2005 on Marco Incitti’s Blitz Creations website. Unlike Geometry Wars which eventually plateaus in difficulty facilitating high scores in the range of hundreds of millions of points, GridWars 2 has an exponentially increasing difficulty curve. Eventually, the enemy spawn sites become so large that they nearly envelop the entire grid.
Another important difference from Geometry Wars is the ability to “farm” black holes. Besides distracting and swallowing enemies, the black holes can net points (and thus bombs/lives) based on the square of the number of enemies they have swallowed.
