From Capybara Games, we have the new Apple Arcade title of Grindstone, which is a puzzle-battler game.
From the game studio Capybara Games, we have the puzzle-battler title – Grindstone. In this title, you will be trying to clear up a mountain full of creeps. Grindstone will launch with the arrival of Apple Arcade, or it is available right now if you are on iOS 13.
Below is the trailer of the game, which you can have a look:
Grindstone is more complicated than what you’ve thought!
From the look of it, Grindstone seems like a relatively simple puzzle color-matching title. There are many on-screen beasties of distinctive, varying colors. With all that, I think that you will assume that this title is all about matching the colors together to get rid of them.
However, according to Grindstone’s developers, it features a much more deep strategy at what at first seems like. You should not think of it as a smooth ride title full of colorful and quirky art style. Grindstone is a puzzle battle in turn-based style against the Creeps and their bosses. From the trailer, you could see one of them (the huge plant-like one).
As you combat the folks on your adventure to the Grindstone mountain’s peak, you will find lots of loot of gear blueprints. These items could help you turn the battle tides. One example is the poison arrow which can inflict the damage of 1HP for every three turns. Adding it into your set will allow you to win the war of attrition rather than risking your health.
The launch and how to get Grindstone
Grindstone will release with about 150 game levels. Usually, with this type of video game, you would assume that it’d be free-2-play and filled with ads on every level. Luckily, the title belongs to Apple Arcade; therefore, you won’t have to worry about ads.
It is available right now on the Apple Arcade. If you are already on iOS 13, you will get a free trial of the Apple Arcade for 1-month. With that, you could try the title for free.
