I just found that you can actually look around with the mouse.
Hold down right click and move the mouse around and you can actually look around the area.
Admittedly, pretty useless overall, but neat. :p

Before I realized Q and E turned, it's what I did. Glad I figured out Q and E before reaching any real enemies.

It's really helpful for picking stuff up that's just out of view under you, or to the lower right corner, or for looking around corners from a distance, and so on.

If you hold the right mouse button and look either left or right and then release, your position and view changes automatically. Not really useful in combact but kind of neat to play around with.
yeah, i was very pleased when i discovered that mouse-look technique as well...kinda makes it feel a bit easier to me than using the turn keys. i've always liked to use the arrow keys instead of WASD and began Grimrock with < and > for turning. using the right-click on mouse to turn combined with the arrow keys is a perfect moving system for me.
I kept looking at the ceiling and floor for secrets when i learned how.
