Grimvalor from Direlight Games is a side-scrolling platformer that is heavily inspired by the Dark Souls franchise despite playing like a much faster version of it. While the story is rather thin, Grimvalor offers enjoyable, challenging gameplay that doesn’t fully embrace the Dark Souls punishment style but is still great regardless of that.

Grimvalor takes place in the lost kingdom of Vallaris where all kinds of monstrosities have overrun the kingdom and begun to seep out into the world. As neighbouring kingdoms discovered this news, they began to send warriors (like yourself) to discover the fate of Vallaris’ lost king. But you discover you can’t proceed with your task without repairing the broken Nexus you have found. Grimvalor begins here with a choice of gender for your hero as you get dropped into the tutorial to learn the controls, which are easy to grasp. Other than that, that’s really all you get of the story unless you discover more information from books you can find as you explore.
