Legend of Grimrock is a contemporary take on the age old role-playing game module. The game play consists of four heroes fighting to make their way out of the dungeon that is in the shape of a maze. The maze is of course filled with terrifying monsters and horrific traps that you have to slay and avoid. These four heroes have been wrongfully committed to the Mount of Grimrock. Your task is to guide them out of the dungeon so that they can find their way back to freedom. However, this is not as easy as it sounds, as there are a lot of challenging obstacles in the way that you have to overcome. You will have to choose between four races of characters that differ in power and skills.

This game is a real treat for RPG fans. However, there is a twist in the module; the movement is rigid, as if you are pieces playing a board game. This may seem unusual, but adds to the novelty factor in the game. After a while you will get used to this mode of playing. Since everything is happening in realtime, the action is strange, but very tactical. The puzzles that you will have to solve will be pretty challenging. This game gives you a taste of RPG gaming and also puzzle solving.

Legend of Grimrock provides you with maps that you have to follow in order to make progress in the game. However, of you like to play it ‘old school’, you can choose the mode without the maps. This also means that you will be able to create your own maps, just like on the olden games. The atmosphere is very alluring and adds to the mystery factor of the game. The mix of puzzles and combat makes sure that Legend of Grimrock is not merely a no-brainer action game.
