Anything similar to Legend of Grimrock?

#1rkingPosted 5/24/2014 2:41:35 PM
I like just about everything about Legend of Grimrock except the puzzles. Some of them later on seemed to require more dexterity than I physically have, one in particular being 2/3-3/4 into the game or so with a bunch of gates in a floor that opened and closed and you had to navigate through the correct path or fall through. I have poor reaction time so having to respond to things that are happening quickly with a high degree of accuracy is hard for me. Are there any games that give a similar feel of exploration, combat, etc. while not having confusing puzzles that require quick reflexes?

Funny, the puzzles are the only thing I thought Grimrock did right... Anyway, you might try the games Grimrock is paying homage to, like Eye of the Beholder, the Wizardry series etc.

Check out the Might and Magic series. The latest one (X Legacy) was pretty fun but difficult at first. It's true turn based though so no more 2x2 grid cheesing. Also not to be confused with Heroes of Might and Magic which are more rts than the grid based experience that you seem to want.

Immune to criticals, criticism, negative board level, etc.

I liked some of the puzzles in the game, but the ones that relied on reaction time like the floor pit ones were too difficult for me to enjoy.

Yeah major brain fart. Seriously meant TBS... Its definitely not the same though and is much more about troop management compared to the much more intimate party system of the Might & Magic series.

Heroes of Might & Magic would be similar to the King's Bounty games then? I tried those and wasn't a fan.

I have several suggestions:

From Software Games:
King's Field (PS1)
King's Field 2 (PS1)
Shadow Tower Abyss (PS2, requires fan translation be applied as it was only released in Japanese... WARNING: HARD AS DIAMOND)

Arx Fatalis (PC)
Hexen 2 (PC)

EDIT:
Baroque (PS2, Wii, Mobile)

If you don't mind turn-based games your options open up quite a bit.

Also worthy of note is that legend of Grimrock itself has Steam Workshop support. People have designed other campaigns, so you might be able to find some that suit your tastes more/don't have as many reflex-based puzzles.
