The Runer overlords have upset the balance of nature and vicious mutant insects are
on the rampage!
Jump into your Cyanitizer and Yellowizer battle craft, warm up the four-directional
pesticide cannons and get ready for 200 intense waves of bug-blasting mayhem!
"This is the voice of the Greenrunner..."
Released back in 2006 at the Game Over(view) Freestyle Jam, Greenrunner literally blew the competition away with its frantic arcade gameplay and amazing mix of sampled speech and high quality soundtrack. It's a game so hardcore and visually intense that it's probable that even Jeff Minter would beg for mercy at the thought of having to beat all 100 levels.
Grab a friend (or take on the challenge solo), jump into your Cyanitizer and Yellowizer battle craft, buckle up and warm up the four-directional bug-blasting pesticide cannons. This is going to be one hell of a trip.
Greenrunner is a one or two player (co-operative) arcade style single-screen shoot-'em-up. You control a small round battle craft that fires in four directions simultaneously and
will have to face 100 waves of bug-infested mayhem to beat the game. It won't be easy...
Player one (Cyanitizer) uses the joystick connected to port 2 and player two (Yellowizer) uses port 1. Infoormation on the various enemies, hazards, scoring and power-ups is provided on the title screen.
"This is the voice of the Redrunner..."
One year on, the bugs are back, and this time they are in full colour! Improving on the high-res character based graphics of the original, 2007's Redrunner challenges the player with an all-new and improved 100 waves of chaos. Lock 'n load!
Conveniently, the game rules and controls are the same as in Greenruner - and again the instructions and displayed on the title screen.
Press SHIFT and hold down RUN/STOP.
The tape contains Greenrunner followed by Redrunner. Recorded on both sides.
