Kongregate and developers at Antab Studio launch GRIDD: Retroenhanced on Nintendo Switch. Antab Studio, a team of 3 from Milan, Italy look to have done a fine job. Check out how GRIDD rolls in the trailer below.
GRIDD: Retroenhanced is an intense arcade-style shoot ’em up heavily influenced by ’80s hacker culture and cyberpunk. Players will fly their ships through a computer system filled with an evolving set of glowing gates, obstacles, and enemies as they attempt to take down an unrelenting security mainframe in a nod to previous rogue computers of the cinema world. With its pulsing synthwave soundtrack by Melbourne-based musician Dream Fiend, and its early home computing style, GRIDD takes a classic era and evolves it into a modern arcade experience.
GRIDD: Retroenhanced twists the tough-as-nails difficulty of classic arcade games by constantly adapting the difficulty to the player’s in-game performance. As players succeed and gain mastery of each element of the game, those elements become more difficult in future encounters. Likewise, obstacles too difficult to beat will relax until they reach just the right difficulty for the player.
GRIDD: Retroenhanced can be further enhanced on the Nintendo Switch by attaching a Joy-Con and engaging in “Power Glove Mode,” which lets players control the game using motion controls.
GRIDD: Retroenhanced is out now priced at $11.99.
