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.

Toorum

Hi,

Another post about Legend of Grimrock.

See, I finally figured how to play as Toorum. Whose name I thought was Toonam. For some reason. Guess the letters were so close together it made that name instead. I’m still not sure which one I like better. Guess Toorum though. Since that is the true name.

Okay, moving on. For those of you that don’t know how to make Toorum work, it’s easy. Start a new game, I suggest easy, at least for the first time playing with him, then, without doing anything else, name the first character Toorum and press Enter. And, voila, the game starts and your only character is Toorum. He has double the speed. However, if you die, it’s the end, because there is noone else there to bring you to the crystal of life, so be carefull. The first floor is a breeze, the second is not so bad either. Third is fine thanks to a lot of closing door. Fourth… At this point, it will be a breeze too.

And as for the next floors, I can’t tell, I’m not there yet. I’m kinda dreading the troll on the sixth floor, but… Let’s say I will have to lure him to the gate that can be closed. It’s the only way. Otherwise, I fear it will kill me. Still… I’m not there yet.

What I am really looking forward though, is the part when I get teh dismanteler. Hell yeah! The best sword in the game! And the best looking one!

Yes, I know there are some people that say the best sword is the sword of Nex, but… It’s the Dismanteler! It has lightning! Come on! What more can you want?! ‘Cept the weapon of power to be held in the other hand… Wonder if I’ll be able to take the Undying one on…

Has anyone ever completed the game with Toorum only? Tell me! What was your boss battel tactic?

Tell me! I want to know. :)

See ya.

Legend of Grimrock – Tips

Hi,

I just wanted to write some general tips for the game Legend of Grimrock which I came to like very much. Also, if you are a veteran in this game, it probably won’t be anything new to you. However, if you are new to this game and are looking for some generic tips, not the complete walkthrough, then I think you came to the right place.

Like I said, this is not the complete walkthrough. I would link to it, but I’m afraid that my blog would be again suspended for wrong links. And so, let’s go without links. If you’re looking for the complete walkthrough, just type it into google. The better ones should be the first few links.

Okay, on with the tips.

First, when you find sacks, don’t just take the items inside. Take the sack too. It will increase your inventory space. I didn’t do this from the begining and had to drop some really nice items because of it. Therefore, I suggest you take the sacks. In the begining, it may be a bit overload, but still, I think it’s worth it.

Second. When you first encounter the troll, it is, I think, on floor six from the top. In all the walkthroughs I read, it says to stock up on healing potions, but I’ve got a better solution for you. In the walkthroughs, they will tell you a place, where you can eliminate the spiders that are there before the troll. It has closing gate. Well… Why not lure the troll there? It will allow you to rest between blows and regain your helth. Also, trolls cannot open any kind of door. As far as I know. Good to know, right?

Third. On floor Ten? I think it is ten. Well, basically, the second part of the temple. There are these weird fanatycal acolytic creatures whose name starts with G. However, that does not matter. What does, though, is the fact, that these morrons can open doors and gates that are openable from both sides. And trust me, it will complicate the situation a great deal! I admit that they can be defeated even through opening door, but still, it takes a lot more concentration to let them open it, slice them, and immediatelly close it again. And do this for as long as they breath.

Fourth. Respwaning lizards on floor nine. Use them! Use them! They give quite a lot of experience. Noone says you have to clear the game fast. Enjoy it.

If you are not using any walkthroughs to help you, I suggest trying to jump in all the trapdoors. Only, save right before you do. Some lead to secrets, but some lead to your doom. Also, look closely on the walls. There are hidden buttons. And many of them open secret doors. And in the secret doors, there are a lot of powerfull stuff. And usefull stuff too!

Fifth and last. Use your brain. And save often. The game can kill you within seconds. However, if you are not sure, you are saving in a good position, create new slot so that if it is saved at a wrong time, you can load earlier position and try a different approach.

Hope this helps some. And also, I’m not detailing the last three floors. Not at all, as I haven’t completed the game yet. And probably won’t for a long time. I mean, I was in the remote part of floor eleven that is just a breather between ten and twelve (The Prison), but then, I just trekked the whole way back up to level one. Why? Well… I wanted to go it again and look at every nook and cranny to find all I missed before because of the monsters. And then, I will stop by the respawning ice lizards to gain a few more levels. I think I will need it in order to beat the last three levels. No offence, but I think level twelve is not enough. Not with what I read about hordes of monsters, respwaning acolytes, golems, and of course, the undying one, or something…

Okay.

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.
