About this game

Content Rating: N/A


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.

Going for an old-school mouse-driven vibe is commendable, but I could have done with a lot more keyboard shortcuts. At least there’s an automap. A strong stomach for tedium is necessary to make it through combat, but the clever brain-twisting puzzles make up for much of that. Legend of Grimrock resonates with powerful nostalgic vibes for gamers of my generation, and I don’t regret my time with it one bit.

Playing Legend of Grimrock forced me to be honest with myself about those old-school experiences. For as many fond memories as I have, I wasn't able to return to the quirks and frustrations of this genre without flinching. I believe there's a space for Grimrock's style of uncompromising dungeon diving, but it's going to require a bit more finesse to operate beyond the realms of nostalgia.

These are fairly minor nitpicks, though, especially since Legend of Grimrock is not a combat-focused game, and even its combat is more puzzle-like than anything else. The focus is on atmosphere and brain-teasers, both of which the game pulls off with absolute aplomb and unbelievably slick production, to the point where one can almost smell the grime and mold on the dungeon's walls.
