Goblin Grotto brings an expansion to Grimps: A Christmas Puzzle.




So I picked up Grimps again and started building some levels only to discover that it's pretty enjoyable to do. One thing led to another and I was suddenly working on a Halloween themed expansion. It features eight new level that starts after the original five from Christmas Puzzle. So put on your devil horns, make yourself a cup of hot blood, and enjoy Grimps: Squeaking of the Dead.

Story
Once there was a bustling metropolis located in a beautiful snowy valley. It’s building were made of the purest ice that would spark and glimmer in the arctic sun. On one misty night the earth shook and terrified squeaks echoed throughout the valley; very next morning the frosty city was no more.
Travelers who journeyed close to the valley say that during the nights they can hear distant and forlorn squeaks from where the city once was.
Some penguins mustered enough strength to enter the valley despite the horrible tales.

Of all those who entered, none has ever returned.

Features
  • 160% More levels!
  • New Obstacles & Creatures
  • Reimagined boss fight
  • 4 Additional Bonus Levels!

Squeaking of the Dead is in a Magazine



Okay, this is kinda cool: Grimps is featured in a printed magazine! It's the first of my games to ever end up in print. Feels kinda awesome. It's number 138 of Amiga Future. For max nostalgia the game is also included on the demo disc.

This is also a good time to announce that there is two amiga ports of the game out. They run on EasyRPG. I was contacted awhile ago by some people who wanted to put it on amiga based operative systems. Looked into it and with EasyRPG it wasn't that much work so I did it.
Had to do some small tweaks for some edge cases that didn't work with EasyRPG, and had to (sadly) remove the screenshakes as they caused several issues. But overall it runs smooth!



So if you got a computer running amiga you can find Grimps for it here:
AmigaOS 4
Icaros Desktop 2.2.6

Hyyyyyyype. The original version of this was an amazing 10 minutes. Looking forward to a full sized version of this!
This game is pure art. High five, man.

I have a feeling Grimps is going to be the new xmas tradition at my house this year.

Just played this and had a lot of fun! I'd drop a review but I don't think I have much else to add from what I said for the previous game. Great puzzles and amazing visuals (obviously). Had lot of fun with the stages where they threw bombs at you in particular!
Thanks guys! Glad you liked it, Frogge :]
Nice job. I enjoyed the new stages and the action sequences and stuff.
I just finished playing Grimps. It was a really good game! Loved the graphics and music.
Played both modes and the four bonuses. I think x7 and x8 were the hardest levels for me.
(Took me a lot of tries to figure what to do in the one with the countdown)
The ones with the enemies throwing bombs were my favorites overall.
