Legend of Grimrock – Remake

Hi,

I found a great Grimrock mod. It is actually the remake of the original game as a mod. And while ti might sound dull to you, it sounds great to me! Because, you cannot import characters into the original game. There, you always have to start from scratch. And I don’t like that. I like to play with my party and I like to continue play with it.

And this mod, while it is essentially the same as the original game, there is one big difference. And that is that it is a MOD! And it lets you import characters.s6590

So I can play the original Grimrock with my already leveled up party! As well as my EPIC PARTY! Isn’t that great?!

And it is all thanks to someone nicknamed Komag.

Okay, that’s all. If you’re interested in this mod, I got it from nexusmods.

See ya.

My own Dungeon

Hia!

This time, it’s, surprisingly, another post about Legend of Grimrock. And what about? First, I was able to finally update the game to the 1.3.6 or something version. So! I now can play and create custom dungeons. Yay!

And, I already downloaded some. And, the next thing is, I’m working on one of my own. It’s not much when it comes to puzzle, but hey, I like the more straightforward ones. Also, the levels are fairly small, but still… I plan on having many of them. It would be interesting to create neverending dungeon. xD Oh well… We’ll see.

See ya.

Dungeon of Slyn

Note for you: This post was written a while back. I just didn’t get to posting it. Also, I apologize for my long absence. It was christmas and school was hectic and so on and so forth. Thanks for understanding. :)

I found this game by pure luck. At first, it looked weird. Like… There were like… Squares and you walked on them and it seemed boring. Only… I downloaded it from the windows 8 store and tryed it. And… I fell in love with it. Yes, it’s a very simple game, but all the best are. Well. Maybe not all of the best, but a lot of the best games are quite simple. At least in my book.

So, this game. Basically, the goal is to get to the last floor of a dungeon complex and defeat someone or something called Lord Slyn. No Idea what that is. Didn’t get there yet. My best is level 16 of the complex.

Okay. Moving on. On your way there you will encounter many many monsters and beasts. My recommendation is to get a unicorn horn as soon as possible. It can cure food poisoning. Don’t know if there is anything else that can, but unicorn horn is a sure thing. Then, there are several unique weapons. I think there is always only one, but I may be mistaken. One is Excalibur. I would recommend it if you play as a mage or paladin. Then there is the cleaver. Good for the warrior. And one more which name I don’t remember.

Okay. There are also items that are potions, armor and weapons, food, spellbooks, wands and most impornantly – scrolls. Those you just have to collect. I mean, yea, there is the amnesia scroll that is totally useless, but then there are teleportation scrolls, they can get you out of a nasty battle. Then, enchanting scrolls, good for enhancing your weapon and armor. And other scrolls are there too. Like… Remove curse one.

But enough of that.

There is also a shopkeeper. Not on all of the floors, but on some of them you can find her. She sells various items. I would recommend to buy food from her, because, in the later levels, you will probably run out of it. I did and then I got the food poisoning, only, I was saved by the unicorn horn. That’s why I’m saying you need to get it as soon as possible. I understand that noone wants to kill a unicorn, but the horn is important. And if you have two, even better. You can keep one for healing and the other one as a weapon. It’s quite strong. Though… If you are a warr and you have that cleaver, I don’t know if I would switch…

So, what do you think? Interested in it? Would you try it?

The only thing I doN’t like about it is that you need to combine both hands on keyboard and mouse. And it just doesn’t work when you keep both your hands on the keyboard and then you need the mouse… I mean, it can be played only on the keyboard, but with the mouse added, it’s faster. Anyway… I think they should add option that would allow players to pick their own keys for controling. Because then I would be able to set it all for left hand and have the right one free to control the mouse!

See ya.

Legend of Grimrock

By a chance I stumbled upon a great game. It was an add on a page I was reading. And so I clicked on it and read the description of the game. Of course, since if was interesting, I went and downloaded the game. It’s called Legend of Grimrock and it is dungeon based. You create a party of four (or you can play with the default party) and then you play.

The story begins with the party being thrown into a prison of sorts called Grimrock. And from there it’s up to you to find your way down to the lowest level. If you manage, you will be free, or something. I am definitely not there yet. To be honest, I just finished the fird level. Counting from top of course. And I have to admit, that the game is pretty scary! It’s dark and you have to watch your torches, because if they go out and there are non in the immedeate vicinity, you’re doomed. Because it would be pitch black.

Throughout the game you collect equipment and weapons. And supplies, as you just can’t have your heroes hungry. That wouldn’t do. I’d be careful with those though, because the lower you go, the harder it is to find any. And since I’m only at the begining of level four, that has to count for something, right? The most will be in level one, so collect it all. Or the heroes will starve.

The game as a whole is pretty dark and while I normaly don’t play games like this one, because they are too scary, I enjoy this one, even though I’m always on edge when playing. I always wonder what monster will be around the next corner, and so on. So far, the worst to deal with was the group of skeletal warriors that fought as a group. Pretty damn hard to get rid of. And then there are the spiders! And they are poisonous! They killed my minotaur! Good thing that those gigantic blue crystals will revive a party member, right?

Oh, and can somebody walk me through making potions? I just don’t understand how to do it! Thank you.

But all in all, the game is great and I’m glad I found it. I was also trying to instal some similar games but windows 8 simply didn’t agree with it, so I only have this one. If you know about similar games that will work on windows 8, please let me know, thanks. :)

See ya.
