Default Legend of Grimrock

Saw this on steams specials banner (released on the 12/4), was intrigued so i bought it. Hello! awesome old school dungeon running, very much in the vein of classic Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder. Need i say more? For the price of $14.00 it is well worth checking out. Havent got past the 2nd level yet, but what i have played i've enjoyed.

Yeah. It's ace. More like DM than EotB thank goodness. Feels like visiting home after a loooong time.

I have kept eye on this one. It looks great but there's one thing that puts me off a bit - the combat is not turn-based. Not sure how it works out in real-time with 4 characters, their skills and inventories. Might buy it later anyway, though.

It works out pretty frantic at times. But all the more fun for that.

After making it to the 9th level, this is a firm contender for my personal cheap game of the year. I must confess i have resorted to youtube walkthroughs for some of the tricky puzzles (like those damn hidden buttons i never seem to find). Cant wait for the next game of this type.

Bump!

Map editor has been released and its so easy to use, its actually easier than drawing your dungeon out on graph paper with a pencil then rolling for monsters and treasure. With a bit of thought you can create a awesome multilevel dungeon, like i just did!
