Legend of Grimrock is our favourite roleplaying game on the iOS platform – full stop, no questions asked. It is simply wonderful: cruel, compelling, sometimes very difficult; a love letter to the grid-based first-person RPGs of the 1990s with the addition of modern graphical polish. And if by some quirk of circumstances you haven’t played it yet, you should go and download it, then close down your browser and not come back until it’s finished.
Those of us who have played Grimrock will be more interested in hearing about the sequel. And the good news is that it’s even better. LoG 2 actually came out on PC back in late 2014, and
Rock Paper Shotgun, whose recommendation led us to try Grimrock in the first place, described their experience with the sequel as being “like a pig in a lifetime’s supply of the very finest quality shit”.
So come on, Almost Human, let the iPad gamers have their turn. The first game came to the App Store last May, so we can only hope that the developers have been too busy counting their money to bother porting the sequel.
