Grumz is a minimalist game featuring charged geometric shapes out to get each other. If you enjoyed Geometry Wars or similar vector style games, you will enjoy Grumz. It doesn’t call itself an infinite runner, but the world’s first infinite stopper. This game features a unique core mechanic, the shape you control is constantly on the move on a vertical path in the middles of the screen and you can press anywhere in order to stop it.
The design is sparse; a plain white background with complicated geometrical shapes in diffused colours in the foreground. There are many kinds of hostile triangles, squares and cones which speed towards your harmless circle. Power ups will speed up your circle or make it invincible for a little while. One of these, a doughnut shaped one, makes your circle glow up like a disco ball and destroy all shapes that dare cross its path before exploding in a wave of blue light which takes out even shapes at the periphery of the screen. The game is fun to play precisely because it is so minimalist.
The game is easy at first but scoring above 25 requires special skill and practice. The soundtrack is simply stellar and really helps in drawing you in completely. It is soothing and immerses you into a relaxing, Zen like experience where you are content in guiding the circle on its endless journey from the top of the screen to the bottom and back again. Play this game to test your reflexes.
