This blog is dedicated to Computer RolePlaying Games (CRPG) that have been released a long time ago or new games with CRPG heritage and that I will revisit in one way or another. I will either replay them or write about the hidden gems well worth playing today. Games will be played through Dosbox or WinUAE.
Currently playing: Nox Archaist

Legend of Grimrock 2 - Highly recommended
LEGEND OF GRIMROCK 2
If anyone thought I had abandoned this blog I am back to prove you wrong. No, the reason spells "Legend of Grimrock 2". One of the best RPGs I´ve played in its genre. They succeeded in doing the sequel even better than the first with outdoor environments and with much more freedom of movement.
If you get stuck you often have other areas to explore. The puzzles are of perfect difficulty. Not too hard (although there are some I´ll admit) and not too easy either. The perfect balance which let you get that feeling of accomplishment when you solve them. Combat is fun and hold your nerves and food is easier to get hold to than I remember from the first game and still you have to manage your food supplies very carefully. If you like games like Dungeon Master, Black Crypt, Eye of the Beholder or Crystal Dragon you would definetely like this game. The graphics are excellent the music theme a masterpiece and the soundeffects add to the immersion and atmosphere. I am already looking forward to another sequel and right now I am struggling in the Pyramids.
