    Grimvalor is a side-scrolling platformer for people who love the challenge that the Dark Souls series entails, but hate the punishing gameplay that comes along with it. Despite its lacklustre story, the gameplay is fast, fluid and constantly evolving to keep things engaging until the very end.

    While it might be unfair to compare Grimvalor to its obvious inspiration, the fast pace and satisfying combat make it truly stand out from the crowd. The style and setting might not be breaking any new ground, but the core of the gameplay is unique in its own right. It might even provide a good challenge for players looking for some brisk action that is great in short bursts.

    Grimvalor is a great metroidvania action RPG, packed with a great atmosphere and an intriguing level design, but also a terrific combat system and many different enemies and bosses to fight with.

    We enjoyed Grimvalor more than we thought, even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel in any field. A good choice if you're looking for a solid metroidvania with soulslike elements.

    I'll be the first to admit that Grimvalor surprised me with both its platforming and combat. It's a challenging and addicting action-platformer experience that was easy to get into and satisfying and challenging throughout its 10- to 15-hour run, depending on your play style. Some streamlined elements and visuals are evidence that it's still a noticeably mobile experience, but it is a fun one at that. If you don't care much for bloat, plot, or elaborate displays of visual fidelity, Grimvalor is absolutely worth a look.

    In short, Grimvalor would have been a great 2D Souls-like if it featured a steeper level of challenge and more visceral combat.

    Ein gutes Spiel. Die Steuerung ist echt gut und Simpel. Die Kämpfe machen sehr viel Spaß und die Story ist auch in Ordnung.

    A fun hack and slash adventure in the style of Castlevania. The gameplay is smooth and boss fights are alot of fun.

    Honestly, God bless any game willing to give away the first fourth for free as a demo. If you like the demo you’ll like the main game as well.
