Grimm

Grimm is a new iPhone game from ROBOX studios (creators of Adult Swim’s Orphan Feast) featuring a dark themed pram that must be routed through a series of obstacles filled with freakishly original black & white artwork. Grimm’s dark sceneries are somewhat reminicent of LIMBO on XBOX. So what’s with the stroller you ask? It seems a mother has accidentally abandoned her stroller on a train platform. Out comes Mr Grimm and he follows the squeaky baby carriage, haunting him along the way. You have to go forth and survive Mr Grimm’s evil attempts of wiping out your baby. Stages are padded with notes and instructions in form of poetry.

Grimm

Gameplay involves physics controls (tilting right/left) for movement along the platform, and two buttons, one for jumping, and another for braking. Your pram contains a baby that you can throw at obstacles along the way. Yes that’s pretty weird having to throw a baby, but that’s part of the Grimm game. But you can’t leave the child behind. He has to stay in your pram as you move forward, so you go and pick him up after a while and he gets back into the carriage. Other cool physics based tricks are elevators that require you to jump up in order for them to go up, and obstacles that you can push around to create ramps for you to jump over. Keep in mind that there is also a time limit per stage.

Grimm

Grimm has a total of 10 worlds and 8 mini-levels, all filled with morbid characters and objects for you to kill. You get 3 lives per game. Picking up baby bottles along the way restores one life. There is an entertaining introduction stage to get you warmed up. The only recommendation would be to have an options menu where you can control the speed of the game, as it can feel a little slow at times.

Overall, Grimm is an exceptionally well made game with a hint of dark humor and original content. Grimm dares to go in a new direction with physics based platformers, and comes out with a winner. Super addictive and engaging game that’s worth every penny.

    Help! In Faerie Kingdom 2 I get stuck in the dream with False Mother, shake till the fire goes out . . . then the dream resets and I can’t get out. Am I missing something or have I hit a software glitch?
    Thanks!

    Hey CC. So glad you’re enjoying the game! Thanks for playing.
    Are you stuck on the very last part of the Evil Forest, where all the bears attack? If so, it’s a little tricky. Make sure you have full health when you get to that point (or at least as much as possible), and run as fast as you can. Then jump to safety leaving the bears trapped on the wooden bridge…
    If you’re stuck somewhere else, feel free to leave a comment here, or email me at roboxstudios.com

    I love this game, honestly it’s half the reason I wanted an iPhone because I got addicted to it on my friends. I can’t get past Evil Forest 3 though any help?

    I absolutely love everything about this game! I also need help I’ve been stuck on Water Peril part 2 for several days. I’m at the part where you go over the net with the sharks in it and there’s a lever a wooden cage and an empty net. My baby doesn’t get trapped in any cage, I’ve taken out both drunk guys and filled the empty net with coconuts afterwards the baby just freezes and I can’t get it. I’m so stumped on this one!

    Does anyone know how to get past the blocking stone figuer in water peril 3, I get that I should do something with the small beach ball, but what? Thanks.

    I really like this game; it’s entertaining and the graphics are unique. At times, however, the game is pretty frustrating because the hints to complete a level are absent or somewhat vague. The overall concept is really good, and the game is worth the money. I’ve made it to the last level, but all the drunken men throwing bottles on the ferry wheel is really stumping me. I’ve hit the center of the ferris wheel with the cannon ball several times and the ferris wheel speeds up, but then what? The ferris wheel just slows down again, and I’m back where I started. I must be missing something, right?

    Hey guys, the update is FINALLY out! I think it really enhances and speeds up the whole experience. I’d love to know what you think.

    Here’s a list of new features:

    • Multitasking: Switch between apps without losing your place!
    • Baby Strike! Hitting an enemy with the baby now kills them with a single hit.
    • Easier Baby-Launching: Simply grab the carriage with your finger and aim. No need to brake.
    • Faster baby-scooping by the carriage.
    • Faster carriage jumping.
    • Speed! Faster carriage speed and game speed in general.
    • Better Checkpoints: The game now saves at the last point reached in a level. No need to replay what you’ve already completed.
    • Retina Display home screen icon (more Retina graphics coming!)
    • Level tweaks and improvements

    Thanks for your support and compliments along the way.

    I’m so in love with this game. The graphics are phenomenal. I’ll admit I was drawn in purely for the aesthetics being a sucker for the Edward Gorey homage but pleasantly surprised to find the game itself so charming and, well, playable. Worth far and above its dollar price tag. I’m even more pleased to find the helpful hints from David on here. I was almost stumped by a few spots in the game (the cannon, the shark under the cage) but managed eventually to figure them out. However, the final ferris wheel was really besting me and, to preserve my mental sanity, I ran to the web to see if there was someone offering some hints. Now I’m off to try to take down the wheel. Hurray for Grimm!

    Hi Arlen. Hmm, haven’t encountered a bug like this. Sorry you’re having a problem. So the goal is to shake your device until the fire goes completely out in the fireplace. Were you able to do this? Does the fire go down as you shake? Or is it just staying the same?

    I am so addicted to this game but I can’t get past the Faerie Mother in Faerie Kingdom 2! At the end when the carriage rolls down the hill and into her, I end up in the dream with her and it says “shake to wake” but no matter how hard I shake, nothing happens! Is this a glitch in my copy of the game, or am I missing something?
