GRIMM is a moody, bleak game with graphics reminiscent of Edward Gorey's creepy illustrations. A baby left in a pram (or perambulator) has been forgotten at the train station, and the player maneuvers the pram through a world of violent drunkards, shadowy druids, and malevolent fairies to keep the baby safe. The theme makes it inappropriate for younger children, but the game itself is quite clever and may be enjoyed by teenagers and adults who don't mind the morbid humor. The game requires a mix of puzzle-solving and dexterity -- often you will need to fling the baby out of the pram to flip switches or open gates; the pram can also be used to fling other objects you pick up, such as skulls or axes, to operate mechanisms and solve puzzles.

With 10 worlds, each with several challenging levels, Grimm will keep most players occupied for a while. Some levels are much more difficult than others, but overall the game is of medium difficulty. One complaint is that the pram moves quite slowly -- it is, after all, a pram -- which can be frustrating for impatient players.
