Yeah thanks, found it there too, once I decided to restart the game with custom characters and play "properly". Got the crossbow now too :)

Still loving this game :)  There are several elements that I will be putting into future roguelikes.

  Damn. I'm so broke right now. I'll put this one on the list. This and Dredmore and Cardinal Quest. Also I need to buy an x-box to play Spelunky multiplayer, Braid, Castle Crashers and Fez. Isn't Cave Story also coming to X-box 360? Yeah, so that one too.

  I wonder if anyone buys an xbox in order to play indie style games? I might, maybe, buy MW2 or 3 in order to play the missions on hardmode. Maybe.

I bought this yesterday and have been playing for a couple of hours now - I'm really liking the atmosphere and the nostalgia factor, although I'm finding the combat a bit tedious and fiddly.  Just beaten level 3, which I found rather annoying due to the large number of spiders - I kept getting poisoned and having used all my antidotes have to keep trekking back through the level to the big blue reviving gem thing.

You can maneuver such that a single enemy will never hit you, via a sort of circle strafing.  If you can't handle the controls on that, you can also rest through your poison (it does wear off eventually).

Probably the most important aspect of playing this game, is the circle strafe, or pillar dancing. 2x2 rooms are ideal combat areas.

We old school players learned tricks like this by dealing with rooms filled by skeletons 20 years ago.. good times!

Oh, I know all about the circle strafing, although I didn't know you could cure poison by resting - I'd assumed that would just kill you... the more you know...

Just played this game for 5 minutes.. loose stones in the walls.. carved stone mouths.. circlestrafing giant slugs.. throwing rocks to activate pressure plates.. good old times!! wonderful emotions..! those 5 minutes are already worth the 15 bucks, seriously.

I'd play it, but the only way to get it is by buying it online. =/
And to make things worse it requires a credit card. *le sigh*

do you expect to be able to insert your cash into your monitor?  What year are we in again?  Also, you can pay directly through your bank account with paypal fyi, no credit card needed.

It's 2012 dude.. get a pre-paid something, put 1kish bucks in it and you're ready to purchase stuff online.

I made a PayPal account but it still doesn't allow paying by debit. You'll need to do a bank transfer and walk all the way to the bank. Jeez, why do they make it so hard for me.

Usually I always pay by debit (y'know they just take the money they need from my bank account, takes like 2 seconds). Paying by bank transfer requires you to walk to the bank and also takes 1-2 days to be processed or even longer and I always run into trouble with it too, that's why I don't like it so much.
And for credit cards - I just don't want to get credit cards out of principle.

What strange country do you live in where paypal doesn't pull directly thru your debit card?  I've been using it this way for years.

Germany.

I can use debit when I buy at eBay(.de), but for Legend of Grimrock it says this payment option is not available. And seems for all other non-German websites it's not available either. Always asks me to pay with a credit card. Maybe you need to be in the same country as the seller to use it?

Also what is the point of loading money on my PayPal account if I can't use it to buy something? Is there a trick to it?
