I should really get back to this game. I was having loads of fun.

And then we moved. After 30 years in the same house.

Ugh.

All I ' ve been able to focus on is old comfy games, familiar stuff like MM and BG2. Otherwise it would have been too much newness. But now I think I may be able to get back to all my new games.

The trick to Grimmrock is to know exactly where you are on the grid. For the timed puzzles you have to be exact, with every move worked out in advance. I suprised myself a few times by getting through what I initially thought was impossible.

hagatha, I hope you do decide to play some more. I could use the company. I am still on level 7.

I haven't finished level 7 yet but decided to head down to level 8 in hopes of getting Dismantler, the best sword in the game. I just encountered a group of 4 fire demons and 2 ogres. It was tough, but we finally defeated them. Ogres aren't so scary anymore if you just circle them on a 2x2 square and try to avoid their hits.

Not yet, but getting very close. We just defeated a room full of Herders, the same type that gave us so much trouble on level 4. Not so hard this time. Puzzle ahead.

I got the Dismantler sword and headed up to level 7 to face a puzzle I left undone. There are three faces shooting balls of electricity down alleyways. I need to block about 30 of them. They quickly increase speed, so it is a mad dash to block each of them. The last few are very fast. I have never blocked more than half of them, so I will probably be skipping this puzzle. Thankfully it is not needed to advance.

I really am enjoying this game but some of the timed puzzles seem to be unfair .

Pokey, grats on getting the sword. How does one skip a puzzle?

Looney, the reward for completing the puzzle is a piece of armor. I can just walk away from it and still advance in the game. There were some puzzles that were required and I had to get help with one.

It's great that it's structured so you can walk away like that. wave

Level 9 was fun and not that difficult. There were puzzles but none were timed and they were fun to do. My characters are getting some nice upgrades and seem stronger. The only real problem was the Ogres at the end. There two in a long narrow passage and they seemed even stronger than before. With no 2x2 area to work in, I ran till I could find room to maneuver and finally took them down. On to level 10. Only a few more levels to go.

Oh, now you're ahead of me. I got stuck somewhere around level 7 and 8 and abandoned ship for a while when we moved. Time to get back to it. I may be coming to you for help, Pokey.

Oh, good. Glad to have some company. I just finished level 10. It wasn't that difficult but a bit confusing on where to go next. There was one timed puzzle, but it was short and I didn't have much trouble with it. I just peeked into level 12, you are directed there at the start of 11. Some tough Goromorgs floating around. I'll have to figure out how to take them on.

Let me know how you are doing. I'll help where I can. Are you stalled on that timed puzzle?
