    Grimm is an exceptionally well made game with a hint of dark humor and original content.

    Grimm is about as pretty as a platformer can get, but it's lacking a bit in the excitement department.

    There is a lot to like in Grimm, and if you can deal with tilt-only controls and some minor frustrations, it's worth taking a look at.

    Grimm is a beautiful simplistic platformer with some interesting gameplay ideas, however it fails to impress with its mundane pacing that's only occasionally punctuated by fun mini-levels.

    Ultimately, Grimm just doesn't deliver the quality in terms of gameplay that its visual style promises, making it just as odd a package as its premise might suggest, albeit for entirely different reasons.

    The clumsiness compounds itself with puzzle sections where players fling the baby out of the cart-to trigger a switch, say-then pick it back up.

    Grimm may look great, but control and design issues are enough to keep all but the most die-hard platformer fans at bay.
