Lost Grimoires: Stolen Kingdom Official ESRB Trailer
The pros just barely outweigh the cons for me in this puzzle game. Since the puzzles are less than impressive and the animations seem to have taken a step back, it's only because the addition of the alchemy minigame and the extra easy completion that I would recommend this game. Without a doubt, this is one of the most forgettable Artifex Mundi titles.
There's nothing particularly wrong with Lost Grimoires: Stolen Kingdom, per se. Had I not played any Artifex Mundi game before, I'd probably be pretty satisfied with what's on offer. It looks nice, it plays well, and the puzzles are fine. But there's nothing particularly outstanding about it, either.
