Kongregate and Antab Studio have announced that the hacker-inspired arcade shooter GRIDD: Retroenhanced is available today on Nintendo Switch on the Nintendo eShop for $11.99.
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.
