About This Game

Legend of Grimrock is a dungeon crawling role playing game with an oldschool heart but a modern execution. A group of prisoners are sentenced to certain death by exiling them to the secluded Mount Grimrock for vile crimes they may or may not have committed. Unbeknownst to their captors, the mountain is riddled with ancient tunnels, dungeons and tombs built by crumbled civilizations long perished now. If they ever wish to see daylight again and reclaim their freedom the ragtag group of prisoners must form a team and descend through the mountain, level by level.

The game brings back the oldschool challenge with highly tactical real-time combat and grid-based movement, devious hidden switches and secrets as well as deadly traps and horrible monsters. Legend of Grimrock puts an emphasis on puzzles and exploration and the wits and perception of the player are more important tools than even the sharpest of swords could be. And if you are a hardened dungeon crawling veteran and you crave an extra challenge, you can arm yourself with a stack of grid paper and turn on the Oldschool Mode which disables the luxury of the automap! Are you ready to venture forth and unravel the mysteries of Mount Grimrock?

Key Features:

  • Explore a vast network of ancient tunnels, discover secrets and find a way to survive in the perilous dungeons of Mount Grimrock.
  • Cast spells with runes, craft potions with herbs and fight murderous monsters with a wide variety of weaponry.
  • Create a party of four characters and customize them with different races, classes, skills and traits.
  • Pure blooded dungeon crawling game with grid-based movement and thousands of squares riddled with hidden switches, pressure plates, sliding walls, floating crystals, forgotten altars, trapdoors and more.
  • Includes the following digital extras: a beautifully crafted game manual, Legend of Grimrock world map, custom made grid paper, Grimrock theme music, art sheets illustrating foul creatures of Grimrock, and Almost Human team photo.

Stone -> one of the most important item in game. Don't throw them away, ever. Or you will suffer.

Dungeon crawler with grid-based movement & maps where progression requires a lot of attention to detail and figuring out cryptic messages, which tends to get very difficult along the way. Very enjoyable though the classes and races seem to be highly unbalanced for a single player RPG.
For example the mage class seems to be pretty weak for the long run since there isn't enough mage-friendly armor around and there isn't much in the game to help them defend themselves.

Legend of Grimrock 2 (here on referred to as LoG 2) is everything you could want for a sequel and more. I look forward to what the future holds with user generated content.

The Legend of Grimrock series are a set of real time, grid based, dungeon crawlers with pleasing graphics and a good aesthetic.

Movement is based on grid and you can turn left and right also move left, right, forward and backwards. You attack by clicking the weapon of choice from the character portraits. While this is not for everyone, it's stays true to it's roots and will please many after they have adapted.

While the story is a little weak, you will find yourself enjoying the neatly packaged puzzles that are littered throughout the world. I had a problem with the first game where you had to search each wall for secret buttons or risk missing one. LoG 2 improves on this by giving some subtle and some not so subtle hints that the player is missing something and should look deeper, resulting in a less difficult search.

Another area that LoG 2 improves upon is allowing the user access to outside areas, giving more varied feel to the game. There are now many more types of enemies and many of which have varied A.I.

The soundtrack has seen improvements since the first game and has a lovely score of atmospheric ambient noise and battle music for boss fights. The theme tune is catchy but I still see myself returning to the theme song of the first game.

In conclusion my experience with Legend of Grimrock 2 was amazing and to top off it all, there is extensive support of modifications, I look forward to seeing what people create.

Controller Support : Not suitable for a controller. Fully playable with just a mouse, although not recommended.

Made it to the third floor before my torch ran out.
Then it got dark.
Then I was surrounded by spiders.
And Killed.
By spiders.
In the dark.
Not for the faint of heart.

Legend of Grimrock is a well made Dungeon Master genre game with nice puzzles and nice variety of enemies. I would recommend the game to all that have nice memories from the age of original DM or want to try something a bit different. As a Finn I a quite proud of the fact that this game was made by small Finnish indie team Almost Human. I surely will buy the Grimrock II also now that the original is completed.

Pretty fun! It's challenging, but not ridiculous. The best part of the game is figuring out the puzzles. Very satisfying.

Great game. Tricky sometimes (for me at least, or I grow impatient with the years :-). If you liked Dungeon Master LoG is, probably, as close and as good as it gets but with its own charm as well.

As a side note I hope that they'll port LoG 2 on MacOS X as well. Really. They'll get my money when they do.

This is a RPG dungeon crawling game that I found to be very enjoyable, good dungeon design in general. Also the puzzles are top notch and varied. The reason I stopped playing this though is I needed to place certain items in the walls at certain areas and I left the right ones somewhere else because I wasn't going to use them. Because of this reason I would horde items. You shouldn't get bored with this game when you play it.

P.S. Keep an eye out for those secrets.

Finally a dungeon crawler for modern age!
This is a lovely homage to the old school grid based dungeon crawler genre, easy enough to learn so the younger generation of gamers can enjoy it, but truly challenging enough what older gamers would expect.
Well balanced, fun, proper achievements and hours of gameplay with an affordable price tag.
Highly recommended for anyone who love single player adventure and rpg-games in fantasy style.

Be aware though that if you never had played any grid based dungeon crawler games before, the controls will probably feel a little awkward for the first minutes, but just learn how to move properly and soon you will be dancing around the enemies :)
