Grid Wars 2.

Grid Wars 2, by Mark Incitti, is a freeware game for PC and Mac. It is, 
as the alert viewers of WoS will instantly recognise, not unlike 
Geometry Wars, the secret bonus game concealed within Project Gotham 
Racing 2 for the Xbox. (Or to be strictly accurate, not unlike its 
sequel, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, which runs on the Xbox 360 and is 
the flagship title of the machine's online service, Xbox Live Arcade.) 
In itself that'd be passingly interesting - particularly for anyone who 
didn't want to fork out £300 for a state-of-the-art, all-singing, 
all-dancing Xbox 360 in order to play a vector-graphics Robotron game - 
but while GW2 is undeniably closely related to GW:RE, it's the ways in 
which it's different that make it remarkable. Remarkable, in fact, to 
the extent that it's possibly the single most perfect piece of pure 
videogame design that this reporter has seen in the last decade.
