Instead, the player has to collect all of the tokens scattered around the grid in order to progress to the next area. There are enemies patrolling at the edges of the playfield which will sling bullets at the player’s craft when they’re aligned with it and, since the collectibles on the level are reset when a life is lost, it’s best to concentrate on survival as a priority, gathering tokens only when it’s safe to do so.
Gridiron is fast, furious and challenging to the point where all three lives can be lost within mere seconds if the player’s concentration drifts but, along with occasionally being frustrating, is fun to play in short, high octane bursts. There’s even a neat little level designer included for those gamers who fancy being a little creative.
