Hi everyone, I bought Gruntz about two years ago at Real Arcade and was surprised at how quickly I became addicted to it. My favorite games had been the Nancy Drew Mysteries and other similar types, but Gruntz was so different and challenging. Of course now I can't get enough.
I'm 59 years young (hence the name "oldone") and still working full time with my husband in our own business. My reflexes are not as fast as I would like, especially for some of these games, but over all I can figure them out given time. There are some though! Any way, it's nice to be here. I've had to overcome a lot of fear to write this. I'm usually very private, especially on the internet.
A million games out there and I get stuck in a Gruntz game!
Gruntz fanz don't bite (not usually, anyway ), so you should feel safe here. With myself and four Global Moderators from different parts of the world, there is usually someone in authority on-line to nip any problems in the bud. Or to answers questions not already covered, or in the walkthroughs. Most Gruntz fanz check in to see if there are any new releases, and usually will respond to questions with hints, or outright solutions to "how do I ...".
I believe the best feature of this Forum to be that if one knows the name of a Level, or the graphics set it is in, or the name (handle) of the Level designer, they can find the thread with the discussion of the puzzle. One thread for each Custom Level, and nothing ever gets archived ... and the thread may grow with no practical limit. The next best feature is "Notify of replies:" ... checkmark that when you post a question, and you will receive an e-mail when someone has something to say about your question. And then there is the old/new indicator for each Board, and "new" alongside threads that have been updated since your last visit.
