Hi! I'm SpaceGoo! I have been playing Gruntz FOR OVER 7 YEARZ!
Welcome to "GooRoo's Gruntz Forum"! Apparently we have both been 'exposed' to Gruntz for about the same amount of time.
My wife acquired Gruntz and decided it was not her type of game, so gave it to me. After I had completed the 'Standard Levelz', I discovered 'Custom Levelz' ... and was largely disappointed by them. I made some sort of disparaging remark to Mary Lou (my wife), and she retorted "If you think it's so easy, why don't you create something yourself?" And the rest is history. My first effort was "Yellow Peril, Proverbs 14:12" (but colonz are not allowed in file namez, so I made it 14-12).
When (in late 2003) Monolith warned Gruntzerz that the MPI Gruntz Forum was going to be closed down (February, 2004 was mentioned) some of us elected to try to provide an alternative, to keep Gruntz alive. The first effort was dropped after about a month, because of some misguided 'prank', and then this Forum was created to replace it. Four and a half yearz later, it is still going strong.
