Clever, intelligent, and wicked in so many ways
When I finally got an iPhone 4, this was the first game I downloaded, and I was not disappointed. Game play is exciting and challenging and keeps you on your toes. The storyline and visualization of that story are brilliant; you're a runaway baby carriage let loose in a Victorian-styled world that is wonderfully illustrated, rendered and sharp. And you have the ability to spring the happy-to-be-airborne tyke out of the pram to attack anyone who stands in your path as you race to find your mum. Putting an infant in harms way has never been so much fun!
Great style, not a great game
In a slew of stylistically boring games that promise unique gameplay, I'm usually quick to latch onto the titles that offer some real creativity in the visual/audio department. Unfortunately, Grimm falls short in the opposite way. It's a wonderfully creative visual effort with truly lackluster gameplay.
The levels are repetitive, extremely linear, and even when new design element are introduced, they only become visual replacements for older elements. The game often forces the player to repeatedly do non-challenging tasks that serve no purpose other than to slow the game down. Slowly picking up 3 skulls from the same place and lobbing them into a basket is not my idea of good puzzle design.
The pacing is also poor. Often the gameplay stops for lengthy periods to show you a very slow, visually-uninteresting animation of a boulder rolling over enemies, or worse yet, to warn you ahead of time of an incredibly obvious trap up ahead. Some of these last a good 20 seconds and are placed right after continue points. Very annoying.
The sound is mixed bag. The music is generally good with lush orchestral arrangements of a very Elfman-esque nature. They are a bit status quo for the genre, and the loops are quite short, but they work fine. The sound-effects, on the other hand, are pretty bland and unsatisfying. Jumping on the head of a satanic Druid only to be rewarded with a soft "scuff" isn't satisfying. That, right there, I found to be severely off-putting. The baby crying sound loop is very short and often sounds like a broken record. However, kudos to some of the voice-acing. The "lipsum text" muttering Druids and the bumbling drunks were very fun.
The one positive is that the developers appear to be addressing a lot of the technical and speed issues, however, there are some overarching design flaws that I think will only be rectified by starting over with a sequel.
It is unfortunate because the visual design, inspired by Edward Gorey Victorian-gothic drawings, is wonderfully endearing and a creative setting in which to present an overall, lackluster game.
Honestly, I don't know how you could expect more than this from an iPhone game: It's ridiculously cute, drawn and executed beautifully, and endlessly entertaining. I throw the baby around the screen just to hear it make those little noises.
I didn't even know an update was coming, but it solved the only issue that bugged me: Now I can pause it (when my real baby starts screaming or to take a phone call) and come back to the same spot later on.
You won't be disappointed, best game on my phone by FAR.
