Grim Legends 3: The Dark City – An overview
This game may have a familiar format, in which you need to find objects in each setting to complete a level before progressing, but there is much more to it than that. Firstly, you get to act out each scene in the form of the game's main character, Sylvia. She is the assistant of a strange monster hunting order who loses her memory in eerie circumstances. Much later, the so-called Incarceri Stone, an object of great power that prevents a terrible creature named Koshmaar from coming into this world, is stolen. In the game, Sylvia – along with her mentor – must take on an adventure that will lead them to the Gothically-styled city of Lichtenheim. For it is here that they will ultimately find out who was responsible for the stone's theft and the full mystery will be unraveled.
How is Grim Legends 3: The Dark City to play?
Optimized for gamers using smart phones and tablets, this game is also equally at home on a PC-download basis.

Filled with hidden objects that you can hunt for at any time, it is the perfect sort of puzzle adventure for dipping into when traveling or at other times when you are unconnected.

In many levels there are some easy objects to spot to get you going and maintain your interest, but others are really tricky, so you won't get bored because the game is overly facile either. The 36 levels the game makers have produced mean that there is plenty to keep you occupied, too, before the ultimate revelation at the game's conclusion. Each level has been hand painted to create a sumptuous visual feast. Indeed, the atmospheric scene of every puzzle is backed up by some cool audio, too. In terms of gameplay, The Dark City could not be simpler. Just click or tap on any object you are looking for.
Grim Legends 3: The Dark City in conclusion
